  3. Many attendees question if they should enter the certification. When I first started attending the NSSG in 1997 I was advised to enter the certification even though I would not become certified but to get the advice on my workmanship. Well, the first year my score was terrible (actually worse than that) but Uwe tore into my work and told me what I was doing wrong. I never made most of those mistakes again. I entered a few times and each time the judges educated me in how to sharpen correctly. I have gotten good enough to get to NSSG Master Sharpener. The NSSG predated IBSA.
    I know all the judges; they are all experts and if you ask them what could be improved in your work they would be happy to show you.
    This would be true for many of us, we would help you, but we need to see your work. Enter the certification, just finding the problems in the scissors will be a learning experience as will your efforts to repair them. You can speak to some of the best sharpeners in the country. Ask more than one of us to show you, we will.
    Some years ago one of my friends entered the certification (he previously Mastered and had the high score twice) and this time did not do well enough to Master. A couple of us looked over his beautiful looking work and found his problem. He had over-polished the edges. That’s us helping each other.

  4. Hi Sidney, thank you so much for your feedback and information on sharpening and certification! We are here to help each other and to grow together. We definitely look forward to seeing you at this years’ show!
