Gabriel Frankewich and his wife, Tricia, are veterans and still adhere to the US Army Values as they fit life today:
The Blade Doctor's mission is to ensure proper sharpening of your blades. We understand that in cosmetology school, you are not taught about your shears; for example, at what angle the blade should be for your individual cutting style, or what type of steel is best or the difference between convex and beveled shears. You are trained to use them.
As a stylist, barber, or groomer, you need to know exactly what is happening to your shears; that is your livelihood. You need to know the difference between a convex edge and a beveled edge. You need to know how to vet a sharpener to ensure he/she is the real deal and won't destroy the very thing you need to provide for you and your family. You need to know how to take care of your tools so they last. But this is not taught in school - this is the job of the sharpener to teach you.
What sets The Blade Doctor apart from many other sharpeners is that he is willing to EDGE-ucate you. He will explain everything about sharpening and shears from A to Z, just to make sure you are not getting taken advantage of. He will answer your questions truthfully and fully respect you as a stylist.
Before you make any decisions on which sharpener to use, whether it’s for shears, clipper blades, knives, ice auger blades, etc, do your research; read reviews, watch videos, check out before/after photos... get to know the sharpeners in the area and don't be afraid to ask questions.
Whether you choose to use our service or not, The Blade Doctor is here to provide top notch customer service, education, and support to the New York State Capital Region.
