SINCE 1921

MIZUTANI

Founded in 1921, MIZUTANI is a young and budding luxury brand with bold yet simple plans to transform everyday products and ingredients into amazing vehicles of change in the lives of people and in the environment respectively.

February 2018

At first glance, the Mizutani Matelite Q-Dial Screw appears to offer only the essentials: nothing fancy, elaborate, or luxurious. Yet the simplest features are still hand-produced by the most experienced craftsmen in Japan, so you can trust that even at this price point the quality is still here.

March 2018

The Matelite Q may be the most comfortable scissors your hand has ever held, with all of its handle edges rounded off and extremely smooth feeling in your palm.
The all-arounder Blacksmith blades perform nicely, no matter your technique: Point, slide, blunt. Don’t be fooled into buying a specialized pair for each technique.

April 2018

Stylists are drawn to swivel thumb shears for the ergonomic benefits and the associated career longevity. If that's the case, why would one choose a swivel that offers anything less than 100% restriction-free movement?⁠

May 2018

My primary focus is serving the hair industry with Mizutani Scissor sales, a convenient mail-in sharpening service and on-site sharpening locally in Portland, OR. I realize the investment you have made in your tools, so you can expect a factory-quality edge, with only the minimum of steel removed.

Reviews

Don't take our word for it, here's what our customer have to say.

Marc Hernried

Marc does great work. I have used other sharpening services for my 8" chefs knife in the Portland area for the last 10 years. When I picked up my knife from Edge Your Craft it was the best it has looked since I got it new.

Stephanie Cano

I am BEYOND happy with my newly sharpened shears! Not only did he drive from Portland to Forest grove but he was kind, professional, did a FANTASTIC job and even left me with bandaids! Cause you know... those shears are sharp!

Kim Wiebke

Marc’s service was so swift and seamless, I will never have to deal with a dull knife again. His quality of work is unmatched and the price is more than fair. I’m so excited to have my go to knife sharpening guy. You’ll be pleased too.

Elisa Christman

I found Marc through my Bay Area shear rep. I didn’t want to trust my mizutani’s to just anyone! I had dropped them and they were pinching hair at the tip.

Megan Lorett

Marc is professional, efficient, and truly skilled at what he does. My shears have never been smoother or sharper, thank goodness he includes bandages with sharpening services

Whet stone work is the key to creating sharp and smooth scissors

Best Scissors. Best Service.

My primary focus is serving the hair industry with Mizutani Scissor sales, a convenient mail-in sharpening service and on-site sharpening locally in Portland, OR. I realize the investment you have made in your tools, so you can expect a factory-quality edge, with only the minimum of steel removed. I specialize in Japanese style scissors and am capable of sharpening and reconditioning right and left-hand shears, texturizing shears, and thinning shears.

I also service knives and craft scissors at my home shop in southeast Portland, keeping professional chefs, home kitchens, and crafters cutting sharp.

On-Site Sharpening

Let the sharpener come to you! If your salon is located within a reasonable distance of Portland, Oregon, I will be happy to arrange on-site sharpening. 

While on-site, all of my services will take place in my vehicle, using the exact same equipment and set-up that I use in my home workshop so that I can achieve the same precision edge anywhere. Working out of my vehicle allows us all to adhere to salon capacity restrictions, observe proper social distancing guidelines and minimize contact so that everyone stays healthy and safe.

I accept cash, Venmo, check, or credit card through PayPal and Square.
