Is it possible for stainless steel shears to rust?

Last Updated: Jul 10, 2015 05:58PM CDT
The chromium in stainless steel when exposed to oxygen in the atmosphere forms a thin invisible layer called chromium oxide. This invisible layer covering the entire surface gives stainless steel its ability to resist stains and rust. If this layer is damaged rust is formed on the surface at the point of that damage.
 
Although a very rare occurrence, rust on shears usually means that something like perm solution or other salon chemicals got on the blades and it sat for a while. This can be polished off and it usually does not come back as long as there are not deep pits.  In order to get rid of the rust, the shears must be sent Precision Edge for service. You would want to do this at the first sign of rust spots.
 
All Sam Villa shears come with a prepaid USPS service label sticker. At such time that your shears require sharpening or service, please call the 800 number on the sticker to pre-book service and to meet your specific needs. Doing so will also activate the prepaid postage and insurance. The number is 800-729-3343
 
If you no longer have your service label, call Customer Service at 888-812-1115 x3
 
Please note that all Sam Villa shears come with a lifetime warranty against manufactured defects only if serviced by Precision Edge. Having another company service your shear voids the warranty.
