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.

This is one of those things you just have to hold in your hand to see for yourself. I can say these are the best tools I have ever used. I have a huge pile of generic tools from Seachem and UNS, GLA tools are way better in every way possible. They dont come in fancy packaging, but they will blow your mind on how precise and sharp they are. The fit is absolutely perfect. The Tungsten Carbide blades cant be beat. These are worth every penny and more.
Im not exactly sure how to get what I want to say across in a review but I will try my best. The first thing you should know is GLA tools are right on level with ADA tools( I own both). After years of using ADA tools I thought I would give GLA a try and holy cow was I glad I did. You just cant compare GLA and ADA to all the other tools on the market. Those cheap things you see on Amazon are all the same. GLA aquascaping tools feel like professional surgical tools just like my ADA tools. They use tungsten carbide on all the blades of scissors. This makes and keeps them razor sharp, and I mean sharp. You could legit perform surgery with these. This is why you have to understand the price of these tools. They are expensive, but for good reason. Super high quality finish,form and feel. Its one of those things you have to just hold in your hand and use. The biggest thing I feel is the awesome price, why awesome? I feel its awesome because when you compare these tools to ADA price, its a no brainer. GLA is half the price of ADA tools. Knowing that it just made sense to me to buy all of them. I did not by the lower end they sell yet, but I do plan to in the future just to see what they were like. Well done GLA, these tools are amazing in every way. True fan here, thank you.
This scissor was much better than I expected, very sharp edge, very comfortable to use and great for trimming around edges and hard to reach areas. A great buy !
