There’s no such thing as a scissor or tool with sharp edges that will never need to be sharpened regardless of quality, cost or guarantees. All scissors must be sharpened when they get damaged, dull or are nicked. By nature of repetitive use, tools will blunt over time. Think of your kitchen knives, including the most expensive - they all require sharpening to keep them in optimum condition to guarantee the best results at all times. If you use this when it is blunt, it will cause more pressure to be required and result in tearing rather than a smooth cutting motion. The same principles can be applied to your nail tools.
Don't throw blunt scissors, pushers, nippers and other sharp nail tools away. They are expensive to buy and to produce. Recycle by resharpening and servicing them with us and you are guaranteed to feel the difference, saving your money and the environment.
The even better news is that we are offering this service to be inclusive to all nail technicians and their tools, not just those of the KB Tool Range® brand.
The timeframe on this is dependent upon the amount of use, care, storage and any damage that may have occurred, however annually can be good practice.
Sharp tools are safer and more efficient to use than blunt ones. When a tool is blunt or thick, additional force is required to achieve the same results. This adds unnecessary stress on tech hands and can cause damage to the customers nails and surrounding skin.
We commission this out to a local tool sharpening expert who offers a professional tool sharpening service to give a new lease of life to your nail tools.
When there is damage, we will do what we can to bring back the sharp edge but if the damage is significant then they may be beyond repair and it will be necessary to purchase a new pair.
If you are unsure whether the damage is repairable, please email us an in focus, close up image to allow us to assess their suitability.
