”Giving a big shoutout to Paul and Stephanie for introducing me to my new shears! To say I’m obsessed with them is an understatement. My old shears could no longer be sharpened after having them for many years, so they pulled up in their new van where you can go in and test and check out shears. They take every safety precaution there is to make sure that you feel safe and comfortable in this new world we live in with COVID. They were great and my shears have helped my wrist so much! Thank you guys so much! Here they are in the before picture of cutting off at least 16 inches of my client’s hair. They are amazing! They have a satisfied customer here!”

I love my scissors, especially after they are sharpened by Paul and Stephanie. We have other companies that come into the salon and ask if we would be interested in allowing them to sharpen our scissors and we all agree that we only trust, “Shear Savvy.

Paul and Stefanie have been servicing my salon for several years. On Friday they came into the salon( The Hair Artist ) Cobleskill , N.Y. .once again the edge I have on my shears will allow me to create and design some of the most beautiful styles! Might I just mention that I purchased the awesome scissor jewelry and received many compliments. Thanks you two for always being at my finger tips!!!!!

Just want to say how Thankful I am to have found Paul and Stephanie to take care of my scissors. Its amazing what a difference it makes to keep your scissors maintained which makes my job easier and more enjoyable. I Just recently purchased a new pair of double sided blending shears and 6″ sharp point shears and I absolutely love them!! Its nice to know that they offer quality products and that they stand behind them 100%. What also makes Paul and Stephanie stand out from the rest is there prices which are really affordable. I hope you get the chance to try them out and I know you’ll be as happy as I am.

I have been a hairdresser for a long time and I have to say I am truly impressed with Paul and Stephanie. Yes, I have had some very good shear sharpening experts, but I also had twice as many ( so called experts ) totally ruin my very expensive shears. So needlessly to say I was very hesitant but when I talk to Stephanie on the phone to set up the appointment I was feeling a little more at ease. When they arrived I was impressed with their professionalism and the amount of training they have been through and continue. The fact that they thrive at being the best in there business shows. Thank you so much for keeping me in business and YES I will be calling on you again for your services when I come back to New York.

Hi to the Great Team at Shear Savvy Master Sharpener, I wanted to thank you Paul for stopping by to Dogwood Pet Lodge NY to Sharpen my Shears before you had gone away that day. I very much appreciate, the time & patience you had given me, with all the questions I had for you. I can definitely say you were very thorough with what you told me about how my shears should cut my proper hair, and had me try them out to make them fit better for my profession, dog grooming. So I know this doesn’t count for the giveaway. I just wanted to thank you for taking your time out as your last customer of the day to fit me in. I definitely will be calling or contacting you soon to get my shears done.

Hello, my name is Brittney Ellis and i work at the C&C Unisex Salon in the Poughkeepsie Galleria Mall. My experience with Shear Savvy was like none other! They were able to repair a pair of shears that I thought were gone for dead! Another shear company had been the fault at nearly destroying them but SHEAR SAVVY saved them! Now they’re cutting better than when I had purchased them, right along with my Yamako’s that they had sharpened for me. 
THANK YOU SHEAR SAVVY! I will be using you again!

I work at Joli Hair Studio in Rotterdam mall, Shear Savvy is in my opinion the best at what they do. Over the years I’ve had many people sharpen my shears and they have messed them up, but the people from Shear Savvy fixed them and made them like new. They always have good products at good prices. I will never let anyone else sharpen my shears again. They even fixed my stopper- no one else even did that. They are great!

You stopped in the salon last week at the request of two other stylists. Last minute I decided to have you sharpen my favorite pair of shears. I’m so glad I did!!! They are back to being like brand new again. Thank you for the excellent job you did!!!

Today I used shear savvy for the first time to sharpen two of my shears that desperately needed to be sharpened. I think I held off on them for so long because the first time I had them done they were returned to me with a notch in them and was really upset about it. Today I was highly impressed in the in salon quick service. I would highly highly recommend you two to everyone I know! Thank you thank you thank you and next time I need my tools sharpened I trust you and will be calling you!

Today Shear Savvy came to my SportClips locations in Colonie and North Greenbush. Paul and Stephanie always do a fantastic job on our shears. I like the fact that they are punctual, educated on their sharpening and genuinely care about their clients and the shears. I also like that I can call and set up an appointment, and have had no problems scheduling something that works for both them and my staff! We have 2 locations and plan on opening many more, and they will be the only ones who sharpen for us! Thank you guys we appreciate you!

Danny Salle

Absolutely 1000000000% the only people I trust to sharpen my shear, and the only people I trust to buy from! I’m blown away with how accomodating they have been with me over the years. They even offer a payment plan on shears, it can’t get any easier than that! When they moved from upstate NY to NC, I and other local stylists had shears ruined by our local “sharpeners”… I was sooo excited that they’re back in NY! I bought Mizutani shears recently and they’re the best shears I’ve ever hand in my hand.
