Does a shear really need a tune up?
Routine maintenance can greatly prolong the cutting life of your shears and in addition will keep them performing at their peak performance.

What is the best way for me to maintain my shears?
1) After each haircut, clean off any excess hair from your shear.
2) Daily, add a few drops of oil to the inner pivot area and then open and close the shear several times. This will help clean excess debris from the pivot area. Then carefully wipe away any excess oil and debris.
3) Once a week, after oiling your shear, check the tension adjustment. Lift and drop one handle. If it falls more than 1/2 way shut, tighten the shear by turning the screw or tension knob slightly to the right. If your shear has a self adjuster this will be only 1 or 2 clicks clockwise. After adjustment, repeat the test and if necessary repeat the adjusting procedure. More tension is better for a shear than not enough.

The Difference Between Sharpeners There are no rules or license governing sharpeners. Therefore many are poorly trained and incapable of properly servicing your shear. Using a Sensei Certified Service Center is the only way to protect yourself and to keep your lifetime warranty.
