Just want to say how delighted I am with my newly sharpened scissors. They are as good as new and I couldn''t have asked for a faster service considering we were relying on the postal service. Thank you so much. Annabel Groom

Anthony Delia ~ Rickmansworth
I am a collector of antique Gorham silver. I have used Prosharp''s knife sharpening service twice over the last few years. Both times, I called Tom in advance and explained the specific restoration needs of each item. Tom has always expressed genuine interest regarding each item, whether it was a hallmarked silver miniature sword letter opener from the 1800s or a sentimental pair of worn electroplated embroidery/nail scissors. Tom always offers suggestions on ways to achieve the best results. Tom is a true craftsman with the heart of a museum conservator. Prosharp has also sharpened, retipped and polished some of my antique pen/pocket knives and fruit knives. High Quality Workmanship, Great Customer Care, Excellent Communication and Lightning Fast Return Shipping! Anthony Delia ~ Rickmansworth

Barbara Gray -Glandwr Wales
Dear Tom, You are miracle workers there in Prosharp. I didn't think that my neglected scissors could be salvaged, but they came back to life after your work. I could see that you put a lot of work into them. Thank you very much. They are not just my dressmaking scissors, but are a memory of my Mum, as they were her pride and joy. I will not let them get into that state again. When I find my other pair I will send them to you also. Thanks, once again, and do add my comments to your customer feedback. I shall be singing your praises all over these valleys!! Barbara Gray. Tom's reply. Thanks Barbara shout loudly from the Mountain tops, pleased you are glad!

Chase Erwin Silk London
Dear Tom, Many thanks for the recent overhaul you gave our pinking shears. Our sample department are very pleased with them and are commenting that they are better than buying new ones. It was impossible to find another company to sharpen these shears, let alone at the very reasonable price or at the fantastic speed of your service. I wish more companies offered the excellent customer care of Prosharp and I will be recommending you to everyone I know. I have another batch of shears which I would like to send you for sharpening. Many thanks Richard Sheehy

For me, working as a cutter in a men''s tailoring shop, my board shears are my most cherished possession. I also wanted to thank you for the sensible packaging - not always common practice nowadays.

Company: Historic Royal Palaces Objects: fabric and pinking scissors We were very impressed with the quality of the service for such a large amount of scissors. Customer service was great, on the phone and in written notes. Staff were thoughtful and very helpful and our scissors now work perfectly. We will definatly be using them in the future.
Jonas Lebert - Munich Germany
Hi Tom, some weeks ago I bought a book "The Victorian Tailor - techniques and patterns". The author wrote about one of the last makers of true tailor´s shears: Wilkinson. As I look upon myself as a true tailor, I "needed" those shears immediately and Google did the rest to get me to prosharp sharpening. Not sure about online-ordering such a high-price item in a foreign country, today I can tell you: Your service is excellent, especially the nice contact, the precise information about the delivery-status and the quick delivery. True shears, best quality. Thank you. Best regards, Jonas
Jonathan Weller - Plymouth

Kath Pryce - Llanwlli, Carmarthenshire
Just wanted to say that your sharpening service is excellent in every way. Thank you for sharpening my pinking shears, despite them being rather worn and bent, which I had not realised. They will now cut thin fabric so I am pleased and appreciate the explanation on my receipt and the effort involved in sharpening them. I will have no hesitation in recommending you and sending other scissors for sharpening in future. Many thanks to all involved. From Kath Pryce

Tom, thanks for your swift response to my query. Much appreciated. To give you a little background, the scissors in question were bought to replace an original orange handle dressmaking Wilkinson Sword pair that I bought for my wife twenty eight years ago. These scissors had given fantastic service all this time and although somewhat less sharp were perfectly useful for fabric until I decided to try and sharpen them last week! I managed to blunt a pair of good scissors rendering them more or less useless...! So to get myself out of the doghouse pronto I found Prosharp, initially for sharpening then I realised that you sold scissors as well... All that remains now is to wrap up the old scissors and send them down to you in Cornwall for sharpening! Many thanks Lance

Nicola Clark - Woking Surrey
Dear Tom, I can,t believe that the rusty,rickety dressmaking shears that I sent you have been restored to such shiny proficiency when I feared they were only fit for the dustbin.It is a joy to find such craftsmen who lovingly restore and preserve tools and run such a friendly,professional business and with speed too.It is now very difficult to find people who have the interest and ingenuity to do the work you do.I will pass your address on to all my friends and the various haberdashery shops that I use. Thank you.

Your service was so good that I''m now sending you her other pair - whhich were her Mum''s - which she''ll then give to her niece, thus keeping them all in the family. Brilliant service, both sharpening & delivery. Thanks again, Phil.

Professor Jeremy Wright MD FRCOG
The fine surgery required to repair obstetric fistulae requires sharp finely balanced specialist scissors but inevitably these become dulled over time. The sharpening of these scissors is highly skilled as the two blades have to be ‘set’ against each other and adjusted to give the appropriate shearing force. The skills to do this are lacking in may parts of the world and the instruments have to be discarded at great expense as repair cannot be undertaken. Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia had some worn instruments and rather than throw them away we contacted prosharp of Hayle in Cornwall, United Kingdom. They immediately agreed to undertake this work for us and successfully renovated 16 pairs of scissors in little under 14 days a remarkable achievement in terms of both speed and craftsmanship. Prosharp have not charged Hamlin for this service and we would like to express our great thanks to them for the service they have provided which will give us the tools we need to carry out this life changing surgery for these damaged and disadvantaged women. Prosharp we thank you…..

Veronica Zanardi
Dear Tom - It is almost a year now since I had two pinking sheers sharpened by your company, and I have always wanted to take up your suggestion of writing, if satisfied, to let other people know. However, very efficiently, I lost your address, which has just now come to light! I brought my pinking sheers from Florence, in Italy, as I couldn''t find anyone there, to sharpen them. It was the simplest of things to post them to you, they were returned within a week already done, and have since been working away very well. I am more than satisfied - particularly as, for me, it was such a simple thing to arrange, Many thanks, Veronica Zanardi. It is never to late Veronica Thank you
