The Team

Pete Walstab

Boss Man

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.

Danii Cameron

Scissor Dealer

Danii is our latest addition to the team, Danii is also a hairdresser by trade and still owns a salon in the Yarra Valley she occasionally frequents. Danii is on the road most days sorting out all your questions and needs. Ask her for a discount, we dare ya !

Peter “Pedro” Marshall

Accounts Ninja and Part Time Scissor Dealer

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.

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. You can generally find him at hair events as Petes wingman and he is mostly up to no good.

Kay Smith

The Keeper of the Scissors

Kay is another lifey having been with the company for over 15 years. As her title suggests, Kay looks after all our stock and prepares all your orders. FYI – Don’t ever touch her scissor stock without checking first !

Teneille White

The Scissor Fairy

Teneille runs the reception in our showroom and also sends 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.

Darcy Mim

Scissor Elf

Darcy is fresh out of an Advanced Diploma of Jewellery and a Metal Object Design course so possibly more qualified than all of us ! Darcy is the newest member to the workshop as a Bladesmith. He spends his weekends on his farm forging stuff and knows nothing about the barrels in his backyard.

Jamie Schulz

The Notorious Scissor Elf

Jamie is one of our Bladesmiths in the workshop making presents for you. 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.

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.
