Shear Sharpening

Protect your investment and keep your shears performing their best with Acute Sharpening on-site sharpening service. Your shears are not only sharpened but receive a deep cleaning via an ultrasonic bath. This dislodges debris that has worked its way into areas that typical methods of cleaning cannot reach. Shears are disassembled, ultrasonically cleaned, sharpened, hand honed, reassembled with new parts as needed, lubricated, and adjusted before being returned to the customer. Sharpening is priced at $35 per shear.  Yes, we can sharpen your serrated shears at no additional cost.  We can also add serrations to a non serrated shear for a $10 fee

Typical Repairs: Removing nicks, rehoning rideline, fixing bends, adjusting set, adjusting tension, geometry correction, previously improperly sharpened, welding broken handles, etc.

Our Loaner Program

On-Site Loaners

Need to get your shears sharpened but don’t want to be down on equipment? Ask for a loaner when we show up to perform your sharpening and we will set you up with one of the many shears that Acute Sharpening has to offer at no additional cost.

Mail-in Loaners

Even though the turnaround time on our mail-in sharpening program is exceptionally fast, it can be a major inconvenience to be without your equipment. With Acute Sharpening’s Mail-in loaner program we will set you up with one loaner shear of a similar size and style for each shear to be sent in for sharpening.

How It Works: When filling out the Mail-in Sharpening Request Form on our website, simply check the box that says “Yes, I need a loaner”. You will then be asked to describe the shear or shears that are being sent in for sharpening. Once your form is received by Acute sharpening we will package up and send out a loaner along with a prepaid shipping label and detailed instructions on how to proceed. The instructions are as follows:

• Remove the loaner shear cases and prepaid return shipping label from the box.
• Remove the loaner shears from their cases and replace with your dull shears along with a note that includes the customers name and email address if multiple customers are receiving loaners (email is for individual invoicing purposes).
• Neatly repackage everything as it was when you received the package.
• Securely tape the box shut with packaging tape (can be supplied at your local USPS office).
• Apply the prepaid shipping label that arrived with your loaners.
• Drop off the package at your local USPS Office.

Once your shears are received by Acute Sharpening, they will be promptly sharpened and an invoice for payment will be emailed to each customer. Alternatively if one person or entity will be paying for the group then only 1 invoice will be generated and emailed to the paying party. Once all shear sharpenings are paid for, the shears will be forwarded to USPS within 24 hours. Shears are typically back in the mail within 1-3 business days of receiving. Once you have received your sharpened shears please repeat the steps above to return the loaners to Acute Sharpening. The total cost for Mail-in sharpening with a loaner is $40 per shear.
