Care and Maintenance

  1. Hold your thumb blade in the twelve o’clock position, with the tip pointing toward the ceiling.
  2. Lift your finger blade to the nine o’clock position and gently release it.
  3. Your finger blade should stop between ten and eleven o’clock
  4. Adjust your tension screw by loosening or tightening in small increments. Repeat steps A & B until the proper tension is achieved


Cleaning of blades after each cut is essential. Using a clean cloth or towel, wipe in the opposite direction of the blade maintain blade sharpness. Then spray alcohol on all surfaces (including pivot) to fully clean the shears. After all surfaces are clean, use the lubricant provided with your order on the pivot area. Please follow the instructions below.

  1. Open shears, then place a drop of oil above and below the pivot area. Turn your scissor over and repeat this process.
  2. Motion your shears several times to ensure oil works into pivot area.
  3. Clean excess oil using a soft cloth or towel.
  4. Recheck shear tension.
