Scissors feature tungsten carbide cutting edge insert in each blade. Tungsten carbide inserts provide extra sharpness, precision & durability. Tungsten carbide is the hardest metal known to man, it's hardness is close to that of a diamond. It is one of best-known materials for precision cutting. Tungsten carbide is known for its ability to retain an extremely sharp edge for an extended amount of time. The blades never need sharpening as long as they are used as intended, for trimming of aquascape.

Please follow our manufacturer recommended care & maintenance guidelines for our stainless steel tools:
- Use instruments only for the purpose they were designed for.
- Handle instruments gently - avoid bouncing, dropping or over-straining.
- Do not use steel wool, wire brushes, highly abrasive cleaners or detergents with a high pH (B-9) as this will damage the passive layer or skin of your instrument. The so-called passivation process during manufacturing forms a thin protective film on the surface of the stainless steel instrument.
- To prevent corrosion or injuries of the instruments, we recommend to use a soft brush and neutral or non-
- aggressive detergents.
- Please immediately dry the instrument after this procedure by using a soft and dry cotton cloth. Any remaining moisture, particularly in the box locks, hinges and crevices may result in corrosion.
- Never mix stainless steel instruments with instruments of dissimilar material (carbon steel, copper, brass, aluminum). If a plated instrument is chipped or peeled an electrolytic action will carry particles from the exposed metal on to the surface of the stainless steel instrument. To eliminate problem replace all plated instruments with stainless steel, if possible.
- Immediately after cleaning, dip instruments in a water-soluble lubricant such as Instrument Milk, Preplube etc.
- Cleaning by hand is efficient, if it is carried out properly.
- Always make sure to use only those chemicals and solutions which are compatible with stainless steel hand instruments.
