Have you seen the company that is selling scissors for $149 or so and they tell you you that you never have to sharpen them because for only $39.99 you can send them in and receive a new pair. What do you think is going on here? Glad you asked.
First off the shear your paying $149 for is a Chinese cheapo. The cost on this shear for the company is very cheap. So you use it for any amount of time and you can send it in for a replacement for $40.00. Here's the trick. The scissor your getting cost them about $15.00 So you get a cheaper shear made from a very cheap steel and they make some more money off you. All your doing is throwing away your money on some cheap scissors. Save your hard earned money and buy a high quality tool that will last. A few company's like Washi and others have a very high quality sharpening department. It's worth the money to buy a quality tool and not throwing away your good money on CHEAP scissors.
