Scissor maintenance is very critical to keep the edge working in optimum performance. At the end of each working day, the scissors should be wiped down with a chamois. Place a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on the chamois and wipe each blade separately. (careful not to cut yourself).
Regularly oil the scissors in the pivot area and around the screw head using Quality scissor oil.
Sharpening is recommended every 3 to 6 months (unless they are dropped or damaged)
Keep scissors closed when not in use and store them in a scissor case or holster.
Check and adjust proper tension daily. Tight tension will cause blades to damage and cause nicks to the blades. If the tension is not adjusted, they will not cut properly.
You should only cut hair and nothing else.
Regular servicing will prolong the life of the scissors and helps reduce repetitive strain on your wrists and thumb.
