After spending many years in the corporate world (in the rat race). Back in 2010, I decided to pursue the challenges of running my own business and working for myself in a challenging industry.  

Ralph is a master sharpener who has received specialized training by Sungold group in Californina on salon shears. Jason Pintel owner of the Sungold group spent time in Japan learning at the factories all the intricacies to get The Sharper Edge.  

We pride ourselves in our ability to take any Japanese style shear and bring it back to life with our precise, ultra non abrasive sharpening system.

 I have been certified in sharpening utilizing the HAMAGURI technique. NO GRINDERS ARE USED. We utilize a honing machine, japanese waterstones, and other trade secret techniques that set us apart from the competition.
