How often should I sharpen my Sam Villa shears?

Last Updated: Sep 11, 2014 01:58PM CDT
We recommend servicing your shears every six months, however there are many factors that decide the answer to this question. Cutting hair that is chemically treated, has product applied, is dry (not wet) will dull shears faster. That being said, Sam Villa Signature Shears are made of 100% Japanese Molybdenum Alloy which have been compression forged and cryogenically tempered for strength and durability. Compression forging provides a longer lasting edge while giving the feeling of “melting through the hair”.

If you think you might be cutting a greater number of dry than wet heads, you may wish to consider Sam’s Dry Cutting Shear. It has longer and larger blades. The blade has a unique “power ridge” design to get through more massive amounts of dry hair, affording you fewer sharpening services.

The way shears are maintained daily will also lengthen the time between reconditioning services. Common sense precautions such as ensuring that your blades are closed before setting your shears down can help to avoid a costly nick. By simply cleaning and adjusting them at the beginning or end of your day or during any downtime, your Sam Villa Shears will give you many, many years of peak performance.
