Quote from: Herman Trivilino on October 13, 2021, 05:45:14 PMThis video shows what appears to be a quick and easy way to sharpen scissors using only a vise and a file.https://fb.watch/8CJiuH8Qi7/I cannot imagine that this technique would work with anything other than a slightly dull pair of scissors that had no nicks. And you'd need a really fine file.
Quote from: Willym on October 14, 2021, 04:48:00 PMThe vase/file technique (draw filing) might well put some "tooth" on the cutting edges of softer steel scissors and give some immediate improvement. Whether or not the edge has durability is another matter.

Whether or not the edge has durability is another matter.I think that (toothiness) would depend on how one runs the file over the edge. Drawn longitudinally, as depicted in the video, it seems there would not be much tooth, particularly with a finer file. Pushed perpendicular (like our Tormek grinding wheels do), toothiness would be determined, to a great extent, by the coarseness of the file/stone. This is where I think finer grits available in diamond files would excel in refining the edge/apex. Seems like this is pretty much the same as some of the "guided" sharpening systems that can produce bevels of as fine/polished character as one wishes.Rick
