September 27, 2018 in Kharkov, the International Congress on the sharpening of manicure tools. The event, organized by Staleks, brought together 69 participants from Ukraine, Russia, Moldova and Poland.

The purpose of the congress is to communicate with colleagues from different parts of the world, discuss new products, fashion trends and innovative technologies in the nail industry.

In the discussion of the “round table” format, the participants of the event addressed issues of customer service, sharpening, preserving the sharpness and durability of the tool, hardness and corrosion resistance of the metal.

A significant event of the congress was a visit to the factory Staleks – the largest in Europe for the production of manicure tools.

Staleks presented new products and shared information about the company’s achievements for 2018. Congress participants learned about the new format of cooperation between Staleks and studios for sharpening tools.

Within the framework of the congress, the first International Championship for sharpening a manicure tool “Sharp Battle” was held, in which 32 masters from different countries took part. We chose a winner in the nomination “Staleks PRO sharpening”, which evaluated the sharpness of sharpening a specific type of skin cutters (NE-20-8). The first place went to Grigory Bogdanov (Russia, Moscow), the second – Anton Kucheash (Moldova, Chisinau), the third – Yevgeny Tsimik (Melitopol, Ukraine).

This kind of event is organized for the first time, but Staleks plans to make it annual and attract more new participants.

The championship winners received exclusive awards, and congress participants received diplomas and gifts from the company Staleks.
