Event Sponsorship 

 Thank you for your interest in sponsoring the National Sharpeners Guild (NSG).  As you know, the NSG is a nonprofit industry trade organization consisting of professional sharpeners.  Sponsorships like yours will help us provide the resources necessary to continue our mission.

  Our mission is to advance the knowledge and skills of beauty tool sharpeners and certify sharpeners of shears, scissors, thinning shears, and clipper blades so that there is a fair and unbiased evaluation of the sharpening ability and provide resources for best business

 practices, training, and the advancement of the sharpening industry. 


In 2020, I joined the National Beauty Tool Sharpening Guild, now National Sharpeners Guild. During the 2021 convention, I signed up to certify on salon shears – it was a very difficult test. I was impressed with the execution and detailed report I received.
Certification, to me, means a personal accomplishment. I proved to myself that I am a creditable sharpener. The feedback I received has made me an even better sharpener. It gave me a starting point for my journey to continuous improvement and commitment to excellence.
