"The purpose of today's training is to defeat yesterday's understanding."
- Miyamoto Musashi
- To be in service to life on planet Earth, creating a better world every new day.
- To be practical and useful to the community..
- To sharpen my will, trust and faith alongside every blade and edge I sharpen.
Passion is a big word and life is full of it. We love all things permaculture, beekeeping, herbalism, weaving and raising sheep, homesteading, learning to name a few. We love to travel and steadily wish for more. Ultimately, we want to raise a couple of kiddos well and show them how to walk in beauty, never forget what is important and have lots of fun. But when the word ‘passion’ is considered, it draws us to think about what makes us tick… That’s similar for many, I bet: spending good time with good people, and great food. This is what makes it all worth it.
Better picture of me, coming soon!!
We want to empower those working with animals by having exceptionally sharp equipment. We believe that having good quality clippers and blades 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. Same goes for shears.
We also 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 went to university 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. 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 and beautiful mother of my children), our little farmstead and I live up in the Ozarks of Arkansas. Who knows what the future will bring, but the CCS family is excited. We definitely hope to have more bees and sheep.
