To maintain the quality of your scissors in the best possible way, they need to be cared for properly. JAGUAR scissors are made exclusively for cutting natural hair.
Also handle your scissors gently. Hard blows, such as dropping on a boy, can damage the scissors. When not in use, the scissors should always be stored in a closed position, be dry and placed on a soft underground.
In addition to the careful handling of the scissors, we recommend you care for them daily.
Clean the blades and the pivot area of your JAGUAR scissors daily with a soft cloth and apply a drop of JAGUAR maintenance oil (link to product) to the pivot area. To distribute the oil, open and close the scissors several times. The oil ensures smoother operation, longer-lasting sharpness and optimum cutting performance.
If you have a pair of scissors with a flex eye, i.e. a movable thumb eye, we recommend cleaning and oiling there as well.
Check cutting tension
You can check the tension by carefully opening and closing the scissors. Once the tension has been optimally adjusted, you should be able to gently close the blades of the scissors, i.e. they do not fall shut; and while cutting, you only need to assert a minimum amount of pressure to close the scissors.
Adjusting the tension
The scissors of the WHITE LINE and the PreStyle scissors from JAGUAR can be easily adjusted thanks to the slotted screw. All other JAGUAR scissors feature patented screws for individual adjustment of tension. These JAGUAR scissors are supplied with an adjusting key. To tighten, turn the screw clockwise for 1/16 turn (3-4 minutes on the dial of a watch).
If it is too tight, you can also turn the screw counterclockwise with a 1/16 turn to loosen the tension. After adjusting the screw, tension should be checked again.
