Scissors or Shears Care and Maintenance

  • Keep dry, clean and wipe fingerprints and moisture off, after use, with a soft all cotton cloth or chamois. Occasionally oil the screw area at the base of the scissors blades. Store in box or pouch to help protect the cutting edges. Have blades sharpened and/or screw adjusted professionally at regular intervals.
  • Don't use scissors, designed for cutting fabric on anything other than fabric. Don't use scissors designed for cutting hair on anything other than hair. Don't use fabric or hair type of scissors on paper or cardboard.

What is the difference between scissors and shears?

  • Whatever task they perform, scissors or shears are based on a simple machine: the lever.
  • Scissors are cutting instruments which have two identical finger rings in the handle. Scissors are usually 6 inches or less in length.
  • Shears have one finger ring which is larger than the other one. Shears are usually at least 6 inches or longer in overall length. The heavy-duty trimming scissors employed in gardening are known as shears, as are the instruments used by professional dressmakers and hairdressers.
