Our Shop

***COVID-19 Update: Our shop is open for business, and our staff is fully vaccinated. Guests may request that our staff wear a mask, and, in turn, we ask that anyone feeling under the weather, please text us, and we'll come out and get your shears from you. Thanks!

Edgewise is proud to announce the opening of its new store in Chicago, at 858 North Clark Street, Suite #202. Our store is part of our continuing effort to deliver world-class tools and sharpening to the Chicago-area's top salons and stylists. Our store hours are currently Mondays 10:30-5, or by appointment.


At the shop, we support while-you-wait and drop-off service sharpening for high-end hairstylist and barber shears (both standard hair cutting- and thinning scissors). For either service, allow roughly 20-30 minutes per shear for us to carefully disassemble, clean, professionally hand-hone, sharpen and oil each shear. Additionally, you save $5 per pair for the service! While our identical in-salon sharpening service is $35 per pair, sharpening at our shop is only $30! It's our way of saying thank-you for coming to see us!



Edgewise offers a wide selection of beautiful hand-made Japanese shears from Mizutani and Hikari. If you're interested in what a truly great hair shear feels like, you just can't do it online or by looking at a catalog. Come in to our shop and try any of our demo shears out today. Additionally, we carry YS Park's professional tools, including combs, brushes, and clips, as well as Mason-Pearson and Krembs brushes.
