You have a highly professional tool in your hand and if you respect our advice, the only normal annoyance that you will have will be the sharpening, this can entail a quick “check-up” that will allow you to have perfect scissors every time you pick them up.Why should you rely on a professional? Leader-cam knows the products. He creates them with passion and with passion, he follows them.
Sharpening is still a delicate operation. e.g., for thinning scissors, it takes great experience, manual skills and a special wheel to grind and restore the microserration which few are equipped to do.The cutting shears may appear simpler, but, for the most usual haircuts with a very sharp cutting angle, the profile of the scissors can be almost convex: relying on the sharpening by a professional is always the best option.
For each operation a specific skill is needed. Remember that the cutting edge for all the most complex types of haircuts including sliding cuts must be done and re-enacted by proper professionals, for real hair professionals! The sharpening of particularly delicate profiles must be strictly done by hand. It is a work of precision, experience and dexterity that not everyone is able to perform.
This is why Leader-cam has created the personalized sharpening service. Our sharpening service is not limited to grinding it is a real general check-up we do to your scissors to keep the sensations that a product made by hand can give.
INSPECTION AND REVIEWING
The first check of the scissors that enters or returns to us is the accurate visual and manual control to verify the correspondence of the scissors to our standards. For those who require it, a short report is put in writing that lists all the faults detected at the time of arrival. If you read well, you will find that many can be avoided and that they are due to some bad habits or the lack of prudence in keeping your scissors at best.
It is a operation that only a few skilled workers can do. As said, for the sharpest angles, it is made entirely by hand. The first processing is performed on the inner blade with diamond grinding wheels with very fine grain. This first intervention follows the control of the blade on a matching plane, precisely to assess whether the outcome of the first machining corresponds to the reset of the reported defects. The actual sharpening is done using diamond grinding tapes: in this phase all the defects of the cutting edge are eliminated and zeroed. At this point it is the moment of polishing the cutting edge that is operated (since antiquity, it would be said) on leather grinding wheels. The first cutting test follows. Now it's time for the tips. They are adjusted to achieve precision closure and subsequently polished.
We always say that to appreciate one of our scissors you must hold it in your hand. The psychophysical balance that will transmit to you is our greatest pride. For this, we always bring your scissors to their original perfection. After sharpening, the correct function of the screw system and the adjustment of the bolt are checked. It is very important that the movement of the blades is always fluid. Feeling the softness of the movement is not just a sensory pleasure, but a good way to the hours of work that await you with your scissors. It is estimated that a professional hairdresser opens and closes the scissors an average of 12.000 (twelve thousand!) times a day. The fluidity of the movements is fundamental for correct ergonomics, to prevent cramps and aches and to make the work easier and lighter.
