The Team

Pete Walstab

Scissor Merchant

Pete is the owner of Excellent Edges, a hairdresser by trade and been in the industry for nearly 30 years. He heads up our education team as well so we guess he knows his shit. He gets called The Bull at work and tends to walk with his little fingers sticking out. True Story.

Peter “Pedro” Marshall

Accounts Ninja

Pedro has been in the game for near on 30 years as a dealer first and has now become an Accounts Ninja, paying the bills and chasing up any late payers. He’s probably the sanest one here if we’re being honest.

Bec McKenzie

The Scissor Elf

Bec looks after all the orders across our sales channels making sure you get all the gifts on your wish list.  She’s also a hairdresser by trade so a great help with education and advising you on the best tool for your needs.

Russell Rentmeester

Scissor Wizard

Russell is one of our long term Bladesmiths having been with us for over 10 years. He’s also been in the metal game (not the music type) for over 20 years so has a wealth of experience but don’t ever ask for his references. Has a thing for people with short arms and …… all the things. Soooooooo

Jamie Schultz

The Notorious Scissor Bully

Jamie is one of our Bladesmiths in the workshop allegedly, he  answers the phone in a sweet voice and occasionally dealing scissors on the side. He can explain the notorious part of his title, we checked and he doesn’t have a criminal record but apparently has a few alias’. Jamie also comes from a barber background so has heaps of knowledge which is a massive asset to his craft and to us.

Darcy Mim

Scissor Baron

Darcy is fresh out of an Advanced Diploma of Jewellery and a Metal Object Design course so possibly more qualified than all of us and not sterile as his title suggests! Darcy is the youngest member of the workshop impersonating as a Bladesmith. He spends his weekends on his farm forging stuff and knows nothing about the barrels in his backyard.

Max Murray

Scissor Yoda

Some people question whether Max is human or T2000 terminator machine. Max has been bladesmithing shortly after the invention of the telephone and since day 1 of Excellent Edges. Max is now in semi-retirement but pops in to tell a few jokes, keep the boys in line and tinker on some tools.

Teneille White

The Scissor Fairy

Teneille runs the reception in our showroom on Monday to Wednesday sending out all of the presents you order through us. Always a happy face at the front desk and only very occasionally gets salty, mostly at the Bladesmiths. She’s also a hairdresser by trade so a great help with education and advising you on the best tool for your needs.

Benni Knop

Club Promoter

Takes a good image and films us doing stupid stuff. Often referred to as Benni the Hack and responsible for all of our social media and any mistakes made with ordering. Message him directly for any issues ben@exedges.com

Jason Kearney

Scissor Dealer

Jason is our latest addition to the team and a hairdresser by trade . He is on the road most days sorting out all your questions and scissor needs. Ask him for a discount or why he ‘s banned from using UBER, we dare you!

Samantha Walstab

True Boss of EE

But not allowed to attend our Xmas parties.

Terry Thornton

OCD Reliever  & Competition Organiser

Not a real employee but needed to make the columns even for Pete’s OCD. The first person to slide into our insta DM’s with this as a screenshot will win a scissor! Not a joke .
