Does anyone know how to sharpen very dull cuticle nippers without making them worse? Answered
I have several pair of very dull cuticle nippers and hair cutting scissors that could use a fresh edge on them.
These are small sharp "plier type" instruments the manicurist uses to remove the excess cuticle from around the nail beds of your fingers and toes. The 2 pieces do not come apart so I need to sharpen them with the jaws wide open, and the use of a very small sharpening instrument.
If anyone has a system that works with the use of hand files or a rotary tool I would like to know how this is done. I don't have a lot of space to work in so I'm limited to the simpler methods. I've tried a whet stone, that was a disaster, I'd be willing to try this again, as long as I know what I'm doing so I don't make them worse than they were when I started.
Any and all suggestions will be appreciated and welcome. Thanks for helping out.
