Depending on the type of scissor and how well the scissors are maintained will ultimately determine the time needed between sharpenings. See below for specific details. First Edges (student set): Typically one or twice a year Edges Scissors: King, Angel, Robin Typically once or possibly twice a year but can go longer by EE & SAS standards Ex Edges Scissors: EEGO, Hawk, BC70, Viper, Manta Ray Typically once a year but can go longer by EE & SAS standards Fish Kit Scissors: Crocodile, Marlin Big Mouth, Barracuda, Sting Ray, Wahoo Typically two to three years but can go longer by EE & SAS standards _______ Excellent Edges™ scissors requires a specific type of maintenance that will ultimately give you the best results if followed by EE & SAS standards. Proper tool maintenance is strongly recommended to provide longevity and performance of scissors. This includes but is not limited to oiling and cleaning your scissors daily, storing properly in a case (provided with any scissor order), must maintain proper tension as demonstrated by SAS & Excellent Edges™. All scissor purchases will come with a users manual including instructions for specific maintenance.




What are the scissors made of?


All of Excellent Edges™ scissors are made with the highest quality Japanese metals. The scissors are hand-crafted and made from Japanese Tamahagane (high carbon) steel. The scissors range from 440B steel to ATS314 steel. This sets our scissors apart because Excellent Edges™ is one of the very few companies who uses tamahagane steel due to the complexity and nature of working with the metal.
