CLIPPER BLADE SHARPENING
Clipper Blade Sharpening is another facet The Sharpening Shop caters to. Clipper blades periodically need a new edge so the end user is able to glide through hair with an effortless cut.
Groomers, barbers, and veterinarians are the primary users of these particular tools. When the user is shaving a person's head or animal, the clipper blade has to cut without pulling a single hair. If one little hair is missed during this process, the clipper blade will snag that one hair, rip it out from the skin/scalp, and create a very painful sensation. For professional barbers and hair stylist, this could potentially lead to a very dissatisfied customer.
Groomers alike have to have perfectly functioning blades for an efficient cut. A dull clipper blade will force a groomer to go over an animals coat multiple times whereas a sharp blade can shave hair with one motion.

Ceramic cutters in theory should last a very long time due to their extremely hard characteristics, but that is exactly why they are inferior. As you see, hard ceramic is very brittle.
