For me, there are two major aspects that separate a good teacher and a great teacher. The first is the ability to clearly communicate verbally and with

I found Debbie's surgical sharpening class to be very informative and very easy to understand. With over 30 years of experience, Debbie has the knowledge and understanding to properly guide any level of sharpener to gain the skills and confidence they need to be successful.

When I first looked into getting into the business of sharpening, I shopped around looking for the best way to be trained. I settled on Debra and quickly realized I had made the right choice. Not only is she professional, but she brings a huge amount of wisdom from being involved in the industry for almost thirty years. She not only taught me how to sharpen but taught me how to be a professional when dealing with stylists and salon owners. She gave me in-site on how to build, and most importantly, maintain my business. After three years of being a sharpener, I can still call Debra and she is more than willing to help me with any question I have. She is

Just a quick note to let you know we are doing good. When we came to Portland for Shear and Surgical Training we had no idea what a change you were about to make in our lives. Your training gave us the tools to build our business and to become more than we ever imagined. We learned to sharpen, repair and spot the damages that will separate Boise Sharpening from the rest. We will not only be good at this craft, we will be the best in our region. We gained not just new tools for a trade but also tools to change our lives forever! We can't thank you enough.

Just wanted to thank you for the time you spent with me. I found your training to be thorough. I needed hands on training and that is exactly what I got. I had no idea how much of an "art" shear sharpening is. I can now go out prepared to outshine my competition. I am ready to go forward with my dream of being the best and biggest shear business in England. Thanks so much.

Exactly 1 year ago I had the opportunity to go down to Portland to be trained by Debra! The training I received on shear/scissor sharpening was excellent!! Not only does she take the time to train you properly she also gets you hooked up with all the right contacts in the Shear sales end of the business as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the one on one training too. One amazing thing about Debra is even after my training it doesn’t matter what time of day or what day of the week, she is always available for support! That goes a long way with me and is just as important as the training itself!!
Thanks so much Debra!
After we decided to get into the sharpening business we looked for someone that could provide top notch training. After a lengthy search we came across Debra, after several calls and emails with her we knew she was the one. Debra has a wealth of information and experience that she's ready to share. The initial training is just the beginning, once you venture out on your own you will discover what you don't know. Debra's training goes far beyond the few days you will spend with her. The after support is just as important and her patience to respond to those challenging questions has been great. Debra has a good business ethic and respects the future business you will build by being conscience of the area you are from and refusing to train other people that would have an impact your business. We are very satisfied with Debra's training and the kick start she gave us into this business. You never know where life takes you and through this venture Debra has become a friend to both Kelsie & I.

Hi Debra, a very impressive new website, you should be proud of it. When it comes to reviews I can't speak highly enough of the training I got from you nearly 20 years ago and still remember and use the little tips and tricks. Thanks again for all your advice and help.
