Do I need equipment to sharpen on?

You will need some type of flathone machine for sharpening shears. If you need to purchase a machine, the machine we recommend is the Scimech Flathone You may wait until after the class to decide if you wish to purchase the Scimech, but we need to know if you need us to bring a machine. The Scimech and additional supplies will run approximately $3800.00. However, most people start out with an inventory of shears to sell which is not required. Those who purchase a Scimech will receive a $100.00 rebate on the class.


Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

The tickets are non-refundable but transferrable. 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We have your records. 

What is the refund policy?

The tickets are non-refundable but transferrable to another person or another time. 

Can I bring someone?

If the extra person is there to observe, they are welcome at no charge.If they are coming and want hands-on training, the second person is half price if there is room in the class.

 Will I get a certificate?

All we get a certificate of training that says they are a Bonika certified sharpener. Those who own a Scimech will be designated a Bonika Warranty Center as well.
