We’re just a little sheep farmin’, beekeepin’, hootin and hollerin’, homesteadin’, permaculturing family nestled in the Ozark hills of Witter, Arkansas.

We want to empower those working with animals by having exceptionally sharp equipment. We believe that having good quality clippers, blades and shears for the job minimizes the noise, pulls less hairs and all around lessens stress to each animal and human alike thus creating much better chances for an enriching, efficient experience.
We aspire for genuine relationships with our clients trying to help any way we can, be it adjusting the tension just right or setting a new blade, talking through product choices or even repairing / servicing the tools your self.
We want you to excel at what you do and have a great time. As we see it, this is our service that we offer – support.
Hailing from Nebraska, I, Brett M. Scott, grew up in central Arkansas. My grandpa was a farmer and man of many hats; my father is an electrical engineer by trade. I have always been an avid learner and acquired a scholarship at the University of Central Arkansas pursuing a bachelor’s in philosophy with an anthropology minor. Ambitiously I traded it all in for a small apprenticeship in jewelry and lapidary arts in Mount Ida, Arkansas in the heart of the Ouchita National Forest.
In the Ouchitas and in the years after, I found a deep appreciation for natural arts and skills. After an artistic stretch of learning and exploring, and a couple rounds of parenthood, I found myself with a desire to know more about building and get a taste for every trade involved to better sustain my self, my family and community. Slowly, I’ve become a multi disciplinary craftsman, repair man and, ultimately, a finish carpenter. This wide range of work has taught me the incredible and unique value of a sharp blade. Its opened up an enduring fascination in swordsmanship, its symbolic meanings, and the art of sharpening.
Fast forward a few years of practice and learning, children growing like weeds, and a small sheep farm, here comes a family friend, Larry Stanley, trying to retire. As of April, 2021, Brett purchased the business from Larry after starting Complete Clipper Service in 1999. Luckily for all of us, Larry is still around after training and passing the torch. Hopefully he is fishing right now!. Today, Morgan, (my die hard teammate, fiancé and beautiful mother of my children), our family and little farmstead live up in the Ozarks of Arkansas. Who knows what the future will bring, but the CCS family is excited and very hopeful. We will definitely have more bees and sheep, good food and great friends at the very least.
