***COVID-19 Update: Our shop will be closed until the state- and city-wide stay-at-home orders for non-essential businesses has been lifted.
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.Sharpening:
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.
