Our professional selection of stainless steel aquarium tools are designed to be a lifetime purchase for the professional aquarist. With proper care and maintenance these tools will last, function beautifully, and the tungsten carbide blades will maintain sharpness to minimize damage and stress to plants.
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-
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.
GLA tools are way better than all the other crap we have. So much we thought was good and may have gotten the job done, but until you try a set like these you aren't doing your stem plants any favors. These are very nice and might I also add the new 2022 logo is awesome. Well done guys!
They come at a premium price, but not like ADA prices. Big long sweeping blades with nice curve and you can see the tungsten coating on the blades. I also ordered the wave scissor and with the two of these I just feel like a profesional aquascaper when Im making cuts. Now if only GLA would finish those leather tool wraps I will be set.
I was skeptical at first, not anymore. I own several sets of aquascaping tools. GLA tools are leaps and bounds all these cheap tools all over the markets. These feel like surgical tools, the blades are business. Love the artwork they have on the new limited tools by the way!
I reached out to GLA for guidance, they were right. These with the Wave scissor are all one needs in a an average size aquarium. I should add these are not the junk quality all over ebay and amazon. I have those, and they are total shit. These are real profesional grade tools, super sharp with carbide blades. Go GLA for providing real tools and not some garbage at a premium. GLA tools are worth every penny and more.
GLA is killing it! Replaced my generic tool line and holy shit these things are the real deal. Surgical grade tools and a sharpness your plants will be happy to except. Love!
5-26-19, Excellent scissors. Very sharp and well designed. My plants look so much better after using these scissors. It was a great purchase I'm very happy. Thanks, Bill Annelli
