Recent Testimonials

  • "In the seven years I've been grooming, I've lived in two provinces and have had my shears sharpened by five sharpeners in four Canadian provinces. Brian is the first sharpener in that time to be able to show me how to improve my scissor work, reduce muscle pain and keep my shears lasting! He's improved many of my shears cutting ability, and several of them cut better than when they arrived to me brand new. Truly worth every penny!"
  • I have been using Brian for several years now and have recommended him to other groomers. He does a fantastic job and is always reeducating himself, to better methods of keeping up with industry needs. I highly recommend Brian of Smooth Edge and will not use anyone else to keep my expensive grooming tools in tip top working order
