What is the difference between the Twice as Sharp®, Ookami Gold®, and Hira-To® Sharpening Systems? This is a question I get often. Here is a quick break down.
Twice as Sharp®
The Professional Twice as Sharp® is designed to sharpen both industrial and low end barber and beauty shears. It is fitted with a 120 grit aluminum oxide wheel and a 400 grit honing wheel. It also comes equipped with an arm and clamp assembly to set and hold a precise angle as you sharpen. This machine has been the sharpener of choice for the majority of professional sharpeners for the last 25 years. The retail price for this system is $449.50.
The Ookami Gold® Sharpening System is the next step up from the Professional Twice as Sharp®. The complete system will allow you to sharpen the highest end salon shears right down to the lowest end industrial shears. The complete Ookami Gold® comes fitted with an 800 grit diamond wheel and pressed composite polishing wheel for sharpening beauty shears; it also comes with the Professional set of wheels. These two wheel set ups, combined with an array of other necessary tools for sharpening higher end shears, makes the Ookami Gold® Wolff's most versatile sharpening system. The retail price for this system is $834.95.
The Hira-To® Sharpening System is Wolff's premium salon shears sharpening system. Designed specifically for sharpening high end beauty shears, this system mimics the precise movements and skills it takes factory trained sharpening technicians years to develop. The Hira-To®'s fixture will allow any sharpener to recreate the convex on a beauty shear without the worry of sacrificing a consistent sharp edge. The retail price for this system is $3082.75.
Each of these machines are designed to fulfill different tasks, but all of them complement each other and would make an excellent addition to your sharpening arsenal. Wolff has been a proud supporter of professional sharpeners for over 25 years, and offers technical support to help you as you grow your business.
