Factory level sharpening and servicing of high quality Japanese style shears require specialized tools and equipment. Sharpening shears of high grade stainless steel involves multiple water-cooled honing operations, skilled work on a series of sharpening whetstones, and buffing operations.
Itinerant sharpeners are simply not equipped to re-condition and sharpen shears as well as a fully equipped service center. This is particularly true if they are carrying their tools and sharpening in the salon. A single sharpening from an inexperienced and inadequately equipped sharpener can take years off a pair shears in an instant if not ruin them altogether. Worse yet, the shears may not even cut.
