Event description

Description

Registration for NBTSG certification is separate from registration for host event activities. Please contact Bonika Shears at 770-972-4332 or info@bonika.com for registration information for the Sharpeners Jam or visit www.SharpenersJam.com.

The certification will provide participants with an opportunity to earn Certified Sharpener status with the NBTSG. The certification process is graded on a point system based on the quality of work in a predetermined list of steps in the sharpening process. Judging will take place off-site. We use a double blind system so that the judges are not biased. Judges are selected for their outstanding achievements and expertise in their fields and are directed by the chairman of the certification committee.

Please note: Master Sharpener status is available at the annual sharpening convention only.

Participants will have two (2) hours to sharpen three damaged shears.

The shears used for certification will be provided but tools, equipment, & supplies are NOT provided. Participants MUST bring own tools and equipment.

An orientation briefing will be conducted before the actual timed event in order to go over the NBTSG standards and expectations and answer any questions that participants may have.

More details about NBTSG certification which will be available during our convention in September can be found at the NBTSG website, www.SharpenersGuild.org.

Limit 8 sharpeners.

Certification includes a 1 year membership in the Sharpeners Guild and the return of their shears plus a certificate of participation or achievement. Refer questions on the actual certification process to Dennis Brooks.
