During the 2013 National Beauty Tool Sharpeners Guild convention held in Memphis Dawn achieved Master Sharpener status for shear sharpening and Jesse achieved Master Sharpener status for clipper blade sharpening. Dawn's sister Sherry also achieved Master Sharpener status for clipper blade sharpening making her the first and only woman to earn that certification. All sharpeners for Shear Precision are now Master Sharpeners who have been certified by the NBTSG.

During the 2012 National Beauty Tool Sharpeners Guild convention held in St Louis we were certified as the first married couple in the history of the NBTSG to both achieve Certified Sharpener status for shear sharpening and recognized as the first two sharpeners to earn certification using the EZ-VEX Sharpening System. Dawn is also the first woman to earn Certified Sharpener status for shear sharpening with the NBTSG. In addition to shear sharpening certification, Jesse achieved Certified Sharpener status for clipper blade sharpening.



Jesse Hockett

Jesse has been sharpening professionally since 2008. He decided to start sharpening scissors and clipper blades so Dawn didn’t have to buy new stuff all the time. He bought some sharpening equipment, talked to Dawn and friends who were groomers about their 5813-1021769801283-4085093-n.jpgexperiences with sharpeners and different kinds of tools, and practiced on their scissors and blades for almost a year before deciding to go “professional” and start offering sharpening services to the public. Jesse is an NBTSG certified sharpener and has achieved Master Sharpener status for clipper blades and Certified Sharpener status for scissors.

Jesse served in the military for seventeen years before starting Shear Precision. He is a decorated combat veteran who has spent more than five years overseas (without the family) in the Balkans, Southwest Asia, and Korea. Before entering active duty he worked as an Aircraft Development Mechanic and helped build the first seven C-17 aircraft for the Air Force (yes, ironically later in life he actually flew in the same aircraft he helped build). That’s where he first learned the difference between being just a mechanic or being a craftsman. Jesse continues to serve his community as a Certified Volunteer Firefighter with the Priceville Volunteer Fire Department. He has also served on the Board of Directors for the NBTSG, a nonprofit trade organization for the sharpening industry, since 2013.


Dawn Hockett

Dawn inspired the creation of Shear Precision. While working as a groomer she kept buying1238754-221225208036815-784962992-n.jpg more and more tools until one day Jesse asked her why she needed so much stuff. She promptly replied, “There’s nobody around here who can sharpen them worth a darn so unless you want to sharpen them for me I need more backup tools to use while I wait for them to be returned in the mail!” Dawn no longer works as a groomer, she now works full time in the business she inspired. Dawn is an NBTSG certified sharpener and was the second woman to achieve Master Sharpener status for scissors.

Before inspiring Shear Precision Dawn worked as a groomer and before that she was a full time Army Wife and Domestic Engineer busy raising three kids, six dogs, four cats, and a husband. She also became quite adept at remodeling the house, fixing the cars, landscaping, and plumbing and appliance repairs while Jesse was off gallivanting around the world without her.


Sherry Fee

Sherry started sharpening in 2009 when she began helping her sister, Dawn, when Jesse was out of town.  She has been the lead blade sharpener for Shear Precision for a number of years and continues to hone her abilities by attending workshops and seminars whenever she can.  She is also expanding her skills to include basic scissors sharpening and clipper repair.  Sherry is an NBTSG certified sharpener and was the first woman to achieve Master Sharpener status for clipper blades.
