Precision finish…

Most large clipper blades are sharpened on automated machines. Blades for camelids are double ground for a superior edge (if requested). Combs and cutters are sharpened on high-speed grinding wheels by our sharpening experts.

How good is our service?

Good enough that we now sharpen over 50,000 blades, combs and cutters a year.

Premier Blade Exchange

Our offer—exchange a used, dull or rusted Lister® blade set for a new Premier blade set for only $31 (plus shipping). You save $17!
  • How do you save $17 a set?
    You save $10 off a new blade set from Premier (they retail for $41) plus the $7 resharpening fee on the used blades.
  • Must it be an exact upgrade?
    Fine blades for fine blades? No. Any Lister® blade may be exchanged for any Premier Surgical, Fine, Medium or Coarse blade in any combination (i.e. a Premier Fine for a Lister Medium). Note: Super Surgical and XtraCover blade sets can be included in the offer. Super Surgicals will be $45 and XtraCovers will be $33.

  • Why only Lister® blades?
    Because they are the only blades that interchange (fit the same machines) with Premier blades.

  • Remember: Include the CODE: WE in the Comments Box at the end of checkout process. We will not ship these new blades until we receive your old Lister set(s). Reshipping cost still applies.


Extra Charges

To recondition and/or fix severe rust
Applies to blade sets, combs or cutters that have been damaged by other's sharpening and thus requires extra time on our machine. Also applies to severely rusted blade sets, combs or cutters. $2.50 per set additional charge. #868801

To clean dirty blades or remove light rust
Applies to blades, combs, or cutters sent to us that show light rust or still have dirt, wool, hair or lanolin upon them. $1.00 additional charge on each piece. #870100

Double Grinding blades/combs for llamas and alpacas
An edge that works for sheep, cattle and horses often disappoints those clipping or shearing llamas and alpacas. It takes double the grinding and lapping time to get blades and combs "right" for this purpose. It will save you time and hassle in the end if we know your needs and take the time to get them right for you. We only charge an extra $1.00/per for a llama/alpaca bottom blade of clipper sets and combs only. #868802


Most common problem?

Failure to lubricate blades and cutters often enough with a high-quality oil.

Why don’t users oil more often?

  1. They assume water (in wet wool) is a lubricant. It isn’t.
  2. They fear excess oil will stain white wool or hair. Prevent this by putting only 3 drops of a white oil on the blade or tips. Run the machine for 3 seconds. Wipe away any surplus oil. Resume work.

Why is rust a concern?

  1. Rusted blades and combs are harder to push through fiber.
  2. Rusted blades/combs/cutters won’t hold an “edge.” Blades are made of high carbon steel. It will rust in hours. The weak acid from your fingers on blade/comb steel will cause rusting within 24 hours. So it’s critical, after every use, to clean blades with hot water, dry and coat them with real oil (not spray-on coolants).

Spray coolants or lubricants?

Coolants lower blade/comb/head temperatures…but they are not lubricants. They do not reduce friction.
So always use coolants in addition to, not in lieu of, high-quality oil.


Beware: Blades, combs and cutters can be easily damaged (and even ruined) during sharpening by those without proper machines or methods.

I used to send my blades elsewhere. I would get 7-8 sheep on a cutter. with premier's sharpening, i am routinely getting 10 or more sheep shorn before needing to change cutters. Excellent turn around, good communication from staff.

Easy to understand order form. Always quick turn around. Love that my combs and cutters come back packaged wrapped in felt. I've always got ahold of a real person when calling about my order. Have not used them yet, shearing is about a month away. Last year I used Premier's sharpening service and was very happy with sharpness. Alpacas are so fine a I was able to shear several before changing cutters. Thumbs up. Thank you.

Very quick turn around, blades and cutters were packaged well. We haven't tried them yet, as we sent after shearing this year, but they look and feel nice and sharp! Also, the customer service by phone is exceptional!

I mailed my blades in to have sharpened thinking they would do a very professional job but when I recieved them, they were not very sharp. The blades only lasting through one clipping. I would not waste my money sending them to this company. I called in to report it and they transferred me to the voice mail of the lady who does the clipping and I never received a call back. This is very unprofessional.

Very fast turnaround. Excellent customer service. Very sharp, and packaged nicer than any other I've ever seen. We will definitely be using Premier again next year for resharpening.

Premier always gives very fast turnaround, always returns blades in our original packaging, sharpening service is excellent. We have tried to have them sharpened locally to save a few bucks but it was not worth it. We wound up sending them to Premier anyway before we could use them. We have been satisfied with everything we have purchased from Premier. Great company.

Our fair was almost on us before I realized that I needed to have our clipper blades sharpened.
I shipped 3 sets of blades from San Luis Obispo CA on Tuesday. I sent them UPS & they took a week to get to Premier. Premier sharpened them & had them shipped Priority Mail the same day. The package was in my mail box on Friday morning. As usual Premier's turnaround time & work was exceptional.
What I did learn here is to use the Post office when I send my blades in. The USPS only cost $5 compared to the $12 I paid UPS to ship them there & Priority mail was 5 days faster.

As with all your sharpening services, turnaround was as expected, and a solid review of the condition of my blades revealed a comb that needed replacing. A call was made before replacing as would be expected. Return shipping was timely however for the first time in 10 years, the packaging was less than adequate and one blade box arrived open with cutter and comb inside the shipping box rather than in its storage box. No damage was done. Stuff happens.

I sent 7 sets of blades in - some were "coarse", some were "Wizards" - did NOT get my coarse blades back - got a Wizard set instead. Have gotten sets back that didn't seem to be sharpened - wouldn't cut ANYTHING. Sets have gone "missing" - less were returned than were sent in. Recommend IDing your blades and keeping a count.

Fast turn around, I get my blades back within two weeks. Blades, combs and cutters are as sharp or sharper than new. I'll never have my blades sharpened anywhere else.

Premier does the best job at sharpening and cleaning blades. Their turn around time is nothing short of amazing and I've always been pleased in the past however this last time someone ignored my note to keep my blades separate from those I included belonging to a friend despit having put a note when I shipped them out and a note when I paid through paypal. They offered to have them shipped back so they could measure with a mircometer which blades showed the most wear but I chose not to do so as I needed the blades. This was very disappointing to me.
We do try our best to keep orders separate. It is even more difficult to keep multiple orders for one customer separate when traveling through our sharpening process.

wonderful to deal with, very quick return on my blades and they work like a dream. I've had bad experiences with others who sharpen blades and they do not properly sharpen them for shearing llamas. These are perfect every time.

Engraving was professionally done. Easy to read. Added an extra touch of class to the product. Worth every penny.
I intend to have my other combs and etc. engraved as well.
