Knowing that a scissors sharpener is barely to find nowadays, I made a phone call to Mr.Voon - the master of scissors sharpening to do a documentary about his story, with combination of my miniature art. His shop was formerly located at Lorong Panggung, Kuala Lumpur, has been torn down in April 2018. He is now half-retired while some customers still find him to work on their blunt scissors.
I was very lucky to capture some photos beforehand, and this documentary and diorama are dedicated to preserve the traditional craftmanship.
Specially thanks to Mr.Voon for the amazing interview!
