Storing
Your Scissors

Storing your scissors properly will increase their lifespan. Store in the closed position to prevent damaging. It is best to use a leather case as leather breathes and allows moisture to escape, which reduces the chance of corrosion and rust stains. Keep your scissors away from sterilizing solutions as they are know to cause corrosion.

To reduce build-up of chemicals or debris, use a clean soft cloth to wipe the scissors and blades after every haircut. Scissors are best used with oil, not dry. Quality oil helps with cutting as well as slowing down blade corrosion. Oil the pivot area frequently. If you notice dust or debris collecting on your scissors put a drop of oil on the pivot point, then open and close the scissor a few times and wipe off any excess oil. At the end of each day your scissors should be rinsed with warm water and wiped dry. Lastly, oil on the pivot point and between the blades, carefully spread the oil on the inside of the scissor blades with your finger, and wipe off the excess oil.

Adjustment &
Blade Tension

 Always treat your scissors as a quality precision tuned instrument. As you know, scissors work better when the blade tension is properly set. The blades will grind together if the tension is to tight and become wobbly if to loose. Either way, the scissors can be damaged, so test the blade tension daily & adjust if necessary.

Handling

Scissors

To ensure a long lasting scissor cut only the hair the product was designed for. Treat them gently to avoid damaging their fine edges. When cutting over a comb, keep half a centimeter away from the comb so you don’t risk cutting the comb and damaging the blades. And BECAREFUL not to cut yourself with the fresh edge.
