I haven't run across a video for doing this freehand with stones. There are plenty out there of how to operate different machines. I could post an instructional video of how I do it and what I've learned if there is interest.

I just happened to find this video . This is a slightly different technique than I use, but there's some good stuff in here. I hope I can post it successfully. In case you didn't catch it , this is not me ... :)

I've been studying the sheers and it seems as though the bevel is constantly in roatation of angle from the heel of the sheer towards the tip. Seems extermely hard to hold a consistent angle..
Jeff B: I usually throw away 2 $ household sheers too. But when a single sheer is the price of a ln above average jknive, I consider sharpening lol.

The guy using the shaptons seemed to make it look easy. We have to assume the scissors were in good shape and didn't need to be completely re-beveled. He removed some scratches and gouges but was careful not to get too crazy.

The magnification looked like a darn fine edge.

MARK <> I can't answer your question, but a little FYI. I have a good friend, Ken, that is a trainer for Aveda. They fly him over to Europe to teach & in the States, as well. Somehow we started talking about knives, and the flood gates opened. His passion, though not as obsessive as mine, was surprising, and I remember his shear of choice by name. He has quite a few at over a $1000 a piece so I knew he was talking quality Japanese cutlery.
