1. Is it safe for sharpening high quality scissors?
Yes. You can feel safe sharpening your quality scissors with the ScissorPro. The unique double beveled edge created by the ScissorPro® will actually prolong the life of your quality scissors.
2. Will the ScissorPro cause excessive wear?
No. The ScissorPro is designed so that it removes the minimal amount of metal, while producing incredibly sharp edges. Patented Magne-Flex™ scissors guides hold the blade at a precise, predetermined sharpening angle and maintain the correct contact pressure between the blade edge and the Omni-Curve™ diamond disks. Your scissors can be re sharpened, as needed, without the fear of excessive wear.
3. Does the ScissorPro sharpen serrated blades?
The ScissorPro is not designed to sharpen serrated blades. For scissors with one plain and one serrated edge, sharpen only the blade with the plain edge. (For example, kitchen shears.)
4. Does it sharpen curved manicure scissors?
5. How often should ScissorPro be used?
The ScissorPro can be used as often as needed to maintain an incredibly sharp edge. In instances where the edge is damaged (for example, where the edge is nicked by accidentally cutting through a pin) it is critical that the edge be reconditioned immediately, before the nick damages the back of the other blade.
6. Are there any scissors which the ScissorPro will not sharpen?
The ScissorPro is not recommended for pinking, scalloping or high-end barber/stylist shear or curved manicure scissors.
