  • Don’t buy Kove products, they don’t stand behind their warranty. I bought a pair of headphones on Alex’s recommendation and they stopped working within two weeks. At first Kove didn’t respond to my warranty request and then they jerked me around with videoing the problem until the 30 day period expired. They now sit packaged in a box to be returned but I never receive an RMA from them. STAY AWAY!!!!

  • used them on paper before you used them on hair. Fabric scissors are never the same again if they are used to cut paper; I imagine that hair scissors might be the same... or am I the only needleworker around here? Anyway, love your channel!

  • Grace is a top chick, not seen her in many years since the British Blades forums were active. I’d say the shears you made would be good for root cutting, the chunky blades lean more towards that. It’d be tricky getting them into small spaces for twig cutting. Top job tho, as usual.

  • Why in the world would anyone think Bonsai Scissors are the thing to cut hair with? I know AS always says he does not know what he is doing ...... but why not check out the subject before you jump in? Scissors are sprung AND hollow ground so only the tip is in contact and that at one point at a time! Because of that you could never get your Bonsai scissors to act this way .... so they are not the tool for the job! Also cutting paper does not "cut it" when you are talking about hair. Maybe another video on how to make a set of hair clipping scissors (and sharpen them) .... clue ... Not on a Belt Sander!
