• No. Is it the same as sharpening your knives?

      It's best done with a whetstone with the scissors taken apart. The angles are different but for the most part the technique is similar to sharpening you knives...
  • as cheap as they are it's not worth the bother.

      That's exactly the problem, the scissors you get today are of poor quality and cheap. They want you to come back and buy a new pair in a year. Old scissors were of much higher quality and meant to last a lifetime. It only takes a couple of minutes with a sharpening stone and your old scissors cut like new again.

      Exactly. : )
  • We have a grindstone but I can't do it as well as the professionals I take our knives to at the farmers markets.
    • Ice man
      Those guys are the best alternative to doing it yourself. They generally do a super good job.
  • I don't bother anymore because I always end up dropping them when I am running with them.
    • Ice man
      I know what you mean. I've always gotten this incredible urge to run aimlessly whenever I've had scissors in my hand. : )
  • No I've never had the need.
  • 5-30-2017 It is not worth the effort if you don't have a diamond hone. Diamond makes all the difference.
    • Ice man
      Very true.
  • Yes, it makes a huge difference!
    • Ice man
      It pays to keep old scissors in good shape. The new ones are junk.
