Certified Sharpening

Each pair of Mizutani Scissors has a specific blade angle and finishing steps as intended by its designers. With a turn around time of 7-10 business days and having been trained at our factory in Japan, a “Certified” sharpener may be your best bet. Certified sharpeners can help you maintain the top performance level of your tool and product’s longevity.

Bart Chen

Bart is officially certified by Mizutani Scissors Japan. In 2018, he trained at the Mizutani Scissors Factory in Tokyo, Japan. Under the supervision of Hirokazu Mizutani (CEO) and Shibata-San (Factory Manager), Bart learned the factory methods and techniques of freehand sharpening. Very few sharpeners in the US can perform freehand sharpening without the use of a mechanical jig. He is committed to ensuring longevity of your investment with proper sharpening technique as intended by the Mizutani Scissors Factory. He is easily reached via phone or email and is eager to answer your questions regarding shears.

Please visit www.mizutanisharpening.com to get service from Bart.

Thanks,
Bart
