Gordon Sturm and his wife Carren founded The Edge Pro in 1990. For the next 13 years, the business grew in their home in Ankeny Iowa, where they focused on sales and sharpening services to the barber, beauty, animal grooming and veterinarian industries. In 1999 Gordon's son Jason joined the company and by 2003 the business had outgrown its "home" and a store-front location was opened at its current location. With a storefront open to the public the business has expanded its sharpening services from beauty and grooming scissors and clipper blades to include sewing shears, knives, chainsaw chains, hand tools, paper cutting blades and other misc. items. We even sharpen the occasional sword.
Since the launch of our retail and wholesale parts store in 2005, we have grown to be one of the largest clipper/dryer parts suppliers in the country! This expanded even more in April 2014 when we purchased the distributor division of Huff’s Wholesale from Bob Huffman of Missouri.
In the past 10 years, Jason has also come to be a recognized authority on clipper blade sharpening and repair and has served on several boards and sharpening guilds. Our staff has trained hundreds of sharpeners, repairmen, and women either through our in-shop training or in sharpening shows. As of 2015, we began co-hosting our own sharpening shows with Wolff Industries as well as speaking and vending at different shows across the country.
