“I run a Dog Groomers in Heyside and Mr Knife Guy now supplies all of our scissors. We tried many different sites and places but every time we ordered the scissors just weren’t up to scratch. Thankfully we found Mr Knife Guy and he sorted us out with amazing scissors that help us do the job beautifully! We will be continuing to use his services, hopefully for years to come!
He even gave us some free scissor cases and sweets before leaving! Lovely touch.”
