Sorry about not posting yesterday, I was getting ready for surprise trip to Charleston. I'll be attending a composites meeting there.

Last week, I told you about one of the newest shear lines Wolff is now carrying, the Lucky Hare® Line. Today, I'd like to point you to the other line, the Shark Fin® Collection.

The Shark Fin® Line is becoming a powerhouse in the industry. They are excellent shears, top quality in all regards, and designed to be one of the most ergonomically correct shears your customers have ever seen. I could write a bunch, but let me just quote some of what the Shark Fin®'s creator has said:

"...our patented handle helps to properly align nerves and tendons in your hand, which can greatly reduce your risk of: tendonitis, arm pain, nerve damage, neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and back pain."

"The crane grip was developed to move your thumb from under your ring finger to under your index finger. This releases all the pressure and stress put on the nerves and tendons in your hand and thumb. ALL of our Shark Fin® shears are made with the crane grip. Also, we don't use screw on finger rests as they tend to fall off. Ours are part of the shear... one less thing to worry about."

I could continue pasting quotes, but instead, why not visit the Shark Fin® site and look around for yourself. Here's a link:

There you can find out about their swivel thumb shears, all the different styles they sell, and you can view both their beauty and grooming lines.

If you have any questions on price, or would like more information, just give Wolff a call at 800-888-3832. You're also welcome to call Randy, the creator of Shark Fin®. He's a super nice guy and more that willing to help. Just tell him you read about him here on Jim Sharp. His number is 1-888-544-7254.

We have some more shears for you! That's right! MORE shears for the beauty industry for you to choose from! Wolff is becoming a one stop shop for great shears you can sell to your customers!

The newest line we carry is called the Lucky Hare Line. They are a top quality shear made in Korea, they're fully forged with bendable handles, and come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors. This would make an excellent addition to your lines you carry now.

To view the shears, you can visit Wolff's website by clicking here. Drop in, take a look, and let me know what you think. For pricing and other details, please call Wolff at 800-888-3832.

Thanks so much to Micheal Eppley for passing on this link to eBay. I've had a number of people ask me where they can buy the Mobile Roll Around Unit I showed in a post last year. It's hard to find this unit because it doesn't sell well here in the states and many stores stopped carrying them due to lack of demand. On occasion, you can still find one of these units at Home Depot; but only once in a blue moon. I'm glad there's another source. Here's the link:

David and I got started on the new Ookami Gold® Training Video yesterday. It was a fun shoot! Most of the shots we managed to get in one take (I've done as many as 20 to get what I wanted).

We just went through the basics of sharpening on the Ookami Gold® System because we're trying a new voice-over technique when we edit.

The voice-over turned out great, but boy did I bang my head against the wall trying to get my editing program to recognize the new mic I bought. My buddy Jonas (who helped design the new Twice as Sharp® website) came to my rescue and walked me through the set up. It's good to have friends!

We'll be putting some footage of the new Ookami Gold® Video on Wolff's YouTube Channel when we're finished with it. It'll be a few weeks before it's done though. In the mean time, do me a favor if you would. Go to the Wolff YouTube Channel and hit the subscribe button. This will let you know when I put a new video up.

Wolff now has colored screws, finger rests, tension screws, and finger inserts for the 200 Series Economy Line Beauty Shears. Here are a couple of pictures:

Colored Hardware

Colored Inserts

You can see from the pictures above that there are a few different colors to choose from. The hardware comes in blue, purple, rose gold, and black (but the black looks more pewter to me). The ring inserts come in orange, pink, red, and blue.

For info on part numbers and pricing, please give Wolff a call at 800-888-3832 or send me an e-mail at and ask for a PDF copy of the price list. Let me know if you have any questions.

Well, it took a while, but I'm back at it. If you've been following some of my live streaming below, you could see I've been doing a lot of work in the production area for a few months. I went back there help solve some productivity issues, and I'm happy to report it was a great success.

I am now back on the sales and marketing side of the fence, and of course, WAY behind. Keep an eye on Jim Sharp and see what's come up that's new at Wolff since I took my little hiatus. I'll be posting more later.

Right now I'm off to start shooting some new videos with David. But first, I need to do an outline before we start.

Just a couple of hours before the Wolff Show kicks off. I'll post some pictures later today. I'll also be live streaming a few of the demonstrations throughout the day if I can get a clear enough signal in the seminar room. So check in at the bottom of this blog from time-to-time.
