Yesterday I posted about the general goings on at the NBTSG. Today I want to show you some of what took place during the certification process. I was very impressed with the consistency of the damage that was done to the shears and clipper blades for the test. It was very comparable to all the different challenges you'd find in the field, just maybe not all on the same shear. :)
For those that participated in the certification, I'd like to give you a hat tip. I knew by what I saw that the test was not easy, and I could tell you were going to learn A LOT! All of the participants said that it was well worth the time and expense, and that they'd do it again. Here is an general overview of what went on:
I'd also like to say, that I learned a lot from this test as well. I was fortunate enough to be involved with the judging of these shears and clipper blades, so I got to see first hand where many of those that took the test were lacking. I will be addressing some of what I discovered in On The Edge in future issues.
The next video will show some of the judging process, but it will be a week or so before I post that because I'm headed out of town. Until then, please enjoy this video. We'll see ya!
