Professional Scissor Sharpening
Precision Hair Scissor Sharpening is an Art Form.
Unlike sharpening knives or household scissors, hair scissors take vastly more time and refinement. Almost any scissor found in the home can easily work with a quick pass on a bench grinder.
Hair scissors sharpening is a multi-step process of establishing an edge then refining it with finer and finer abrasives until the final honing process, which further refines and polishes the outer edge.
However the inner edge must also be established and refined. This is the hardest part and when many would-be sharpeners fall off the map. The ultimate goal is a inner edge, which is refined, flat, and properly referenced to the other inside edge. No burr can remain as well.
This scissor sharpening process is time consuming and cannot be eliminated. It can be minimized, but not eliminated.
