  Q. How often should my scissors be sharpened?
Back To Top
Scissors should be sharpened on average between 4-6 mths. This equates to between 600-700 cuts, however several variables will affect this estimate. For example, cutting dry hair is much harder on scissors than wet hair, lower quality scissors are made from lower quality steel which do not hold an edge as long, etc. Frequent sharpening however will prolong the life of the scissors as less metal will need to be removed and the scissors will be easier to work with. In general, if you find your scissors pulling, or catching the hair, particularly at the tips, or if they have been dropped, then they need to be looked at.
  Q. How many times can they be sharpened?
Back To Top
The key to this lies in the method of sharpening. A quality sharpener using a quality sharpening system such as the Hira-to remove only the minimum steel required for a restored edge, lesser quality systems can both remove too much steel and overheat the scissors making the steel brittle. Also the better the quality of the steel in the scissors, the longer the edge will remain sharp. Good quality scissors sharpened by us should be able to be sharpened 5-7 times, but in many cases more.
