My name is Bonnie Worsfold and I have just purchased a pair of Stingray and Croc's Scissors about a month ago. I previously had been cutting with a pair of point scissors.
When I was cutting with these incorrect tools, I had to overcompensate to even cut a straight line............It felt like something was wrong with them, like I needed them sharper or something..............something just wasn't right. Greg came along to my salon to show us what his scissors and training could do for us all. I bought my old scissors out and straight away they pointed out why I was having so many problems.
Four weeks later...........I'm cutting away with my scissors. My speed has increased and I am no longer wondering why I can't cut a straight line. The overall outcome of my cuts has improved and my clients can tell the difference.
I would highly recommend you educate yourself on your most important tool in this industry. These people know what they are doing and having these scissors has changed my life as a stylist and how I cut because of this education, along with the passion they so willing share, it has increased my confidence and my outlook on cutting.
Thank You So Much!!!!!

I was referred to "A Sharper Blade" by a friend. 
I had a very unfortunate mobile sharpening experience and was caught out in desperation (please refer to the "A Sharper Blade" on Facebook post, dated 28th May 2016).
I sent my scissors to Greg for repair..........WOW its not even close to the work that Greg did. 
Not only was he amazing to deal with, Greg was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and dam talented, considering my scissors were totally naffed. He has repaired and sharpened beyond my belief. 
My scissors are again like brand new and I'am doing cutting techniques I haven't been able to achieve for a very long time, also I haven't worried about client or my safety since Greg repaired them. 
You are fabulous A Sharper Blade.........I'm so grateful.
Cheers Di.

Greg really knows his stuff and better yet cares about his results and his customers. The "A Sharper Blade" scissor course is invaluable and quite honestly A MUST for all hairdressers at any level in their career.
Highly recommend is an understatement............I wouldn't have anyone else touch my tools!

It's one thing to be sold awesome scissors, but it's a whole other thing when they are sold to you by a person who wants you to get the best out of them and guides you with your new pair.
Greg's professionalism and care is second to none! I appreciate your time that you spent with me to get the right scissor for me in a price range I can afford. I love them and will return to you for all my tool needs.
Thank you!

What fantastic service! 
Greg has just delivered-three pairs of sharpened and sett corrected scissors (all are past their use by date) and still Greg has resurrected them and included a comprehensive service explanation for each scissor. 
Plus he turned them around in less than 3 days. This is the VERY BEST SERVICE in all my years hairdressing. Thanks Greg..........I'm sure my next clients will love the result too!

Had the most amazing day yesterday with u both, it truly was mind blowing the information that Roelie and I received from coming to your Cutting / Scissor course.
It such a great thing to have been with such passionate people that truly care about our industry as hairdressers.
Thanks for calling out today that was so cool, another thing..........for any hairdresser out their reading this, these guys truly know their stuff, no pressure to buy they just telling us what they know and how to use our tools correctly, what they are for and what they are made of..........I could go on, but ya’s get my drift!

Chloe, Bliss & I attended a cutting course yesterday, hosted by A Sharper Blade Ltd in Invercargill. 
A lot of the techniques we learnt from Sue, just made so much sense! Especially body, hand, & wrist position.
I was blown away being shown the right tools for the job, as some scissors can't physically cut a straight line or a curve, or slice!!!!!!
Priceless............Where were these guys 18 years ago when I was starting out? Hope this old dog can put the new tricks to good use!!

Greg did an amazing job on my thinners, I bought a pair not knowing what I was going into, I asked for a pair I can always use to slither out the hair. They always pulled and I didn't know why. Greg and his team taught me so much about my scissors I didn't know, and now I take extra good care of them.
Thank you so much! I will not go elsewhere!

So super stoked. After a hand injury I contacted Greg to see what I could possibly do to help get me back on the floor again. Super happy with the time and effort he put into helping me find a pair of scissors that put my hand in a comfortable position. I have now been using my new pair of scissors for 3 months and finally up to doing 20 hours on the floor. Thank you so much for the time and help to get me back into what I love. Totally recommend.

Just received my scissors back from Greg and I am so impressed! They were an old pair that I purchased nearly 10 years ago (and to be honest I had neglected quite badly) and he has made them feel brand new! I was a little apprehensive as the only times I have had scissors sharpened in the past it was just from a mobile scissor guy dropping into the salon and doing them in his van, so posting them in the mail was daunting. The difference however is extremely apparent! Greg was super knowledgeable and even wrote a full report on what he did. I'm never getting them sharpened elsewhere again. Well worth posting them to Wellington! (He was also super quick with sending them back so thank you!)

I have spoken to Greg for more than an hour purely about purchasing a new pair scissors.
His knowledge is extensive and truly makes you feel valued as a hairstylist.
I am trailing scissors in a week or so and I absolutely can't wait! I know that we are going to find the perfect pair for me.

Greg is GREAT! I have found my new scissor guy! He has done an Amazing job on sharpening my scissors, they haven't felt this good to cut with in a long time! I also received them back within 2 days and I live in New Plymouth. Greg also explains everything very well and will answer any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you!!!
