What is Offered in the Training
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.
Choose from a variety of courses, tailored to meet your specific needs. Courses
consist of 25-40 hours of individualized, hands on training, resulting in an
extensive knowledge of a variety of methods, styles and techniques of
sharpening. You will also learn to: test sharpness, identify and correct cutting
problems, install silencers and custom balance shears.
Taught one on one by Master Sharpener Jason Pintel, these intensive courses
teach you with no prior experience whatsoever the theory, construction and fine
art of sharpening.
