Does anyone have any experience sharpening hair shears? They are 440C stainless and have a hollow ground back. The interesting thing is the bevel is on the hollow ground side. On YouTube there were not too many videos. However the one there was recommended going up to 30k! For 440C stainless. How high of a grit doyou recommend for this steel

Don't. They are incredibly hard to sharpen properly. Its a whole different thing, and machines do it better.

Send them to someone.

Shears are a whole different ballgame than knives,especially convex shears.You can easily ruin a pair trying to do a pair by hand with stones.It can be done but takes alot of practice.Tom or Ken could maybe chime in on that.I use a powered system with a selection of diamond and leathers to hone and polish then different stones to hone the ride on.

Send them to Lucian. He sounds like he's got the set-up.

I would be more than happy to sharpen them for you,shoot me a pm if you are interested.There may be sharpeners in your area as well,if you want to go the local route I would ask what kind of system they use.Alot of this is matter of opinion but I would not let anyone sharpen my convex shears with a tas system,or any type of grinder system for that matter.
