Scissor Care
All our scissors come with a lifetime guarantee. However, to ensure maximum cutting-life & satisfaction, we would recommend following these guidelines:
Wilkinson Xtra Sharp 10 inch sidebent scissors
  • Always store in a dry environment with the blades closed.
  • To prolong life, wipe the inside of the blades of the scissors after use with a clean soft cloth. This removes tiny particles of dust and fibre which build up between the blades and can impair the cutting ability. For heavier users, use a drop of light machine oil on a clean cloth to wipe the inside of the blades weekly.
  • Avoid harsh treatment of the scissors and handle with care – dropping or bashing them can cause irreversible edge damage if the blades are open.
  • Occasionally scissors may need sharpening & this 
should be carried out by craftsmen – incorrect sharpening can render a product useless. We offer a monthly worldwide resharpening and resetting service. To find out more, please email Please note, we can only resharpen and reset scissors in adequate condition, we are unable to overhaul scissors that have found themselves in a state of disrepair.
