Can I sharpen hair scissors on a Tormek?

Is it possible to sharpen hair scissors on a Tormek Sharpening Machine?


  • The short answer is no; these are delicate knives and we cannot guarantee the result.

    However, we know that some use our Scissors Jig SVX-150. If you do want to try it, remember that it is important that your scissors have a straight edge on the top, so that they can be mounted correctly in the jig. It is also important to use the Japanese Waterstone (SJ-250/SJ-200), since hair scissors don't need much steel removal. We would recommend to try on some less expensive scissors to begin with.
