I am able to train from five to ten people at a time. The aspect of hand sharpening is done without power equipment, and is not taught by anyone in the world, to my knowledge. I have been teaching for more than 20 years and I have references in this country and Australia from successful students.
I am probably the only sharpener that is teaching the art of sharpening the Japanese style shear totally by hand without power equipment. This may not sound important, but the problem in the country and to an extent world wide, is that people are destroying shears with power equipment. They buy a machine and proceed to remove most of the blade with improper angles and excessive speed of the abrasive on the steel. Yes, I do teach how to use power equipment properly, but it is beautiful to produce a hand done edge that gives you total control of the work by the stroke of the hand.
Our courses are designed to teach you every aspect of this fine art and, upon completion, equip you with all the skills, tools, and business know-how necessary to work whenever and wherever you want.
