These scissors can be sharpened and re-sharpened.

We recommend that you not use the shears for cutting paper, as this will dull the blades and make cutting fabric more difficult.      

How to care for rupalee handmade scissors: 

     . To avoid damage to the blade setting, do not force a cut if you feel resistance. This may be the wrong scissors for the job, or your scissors or shears may need sharpening or repair.
    . Store scissors in dry place.
    . Pin fabric outside the cutting area, to avoid encountering hard metal or plastic objects that might damage your scissors.
    . Periodically wipe the inside blade surfaces of the scissors to keep them lint free; add a small drop of household oil at the assembly point to maintain smooth cutting action. 
    . You may want to apply a light coating of oil on the scissors’ blades and edges to prevent rust, especially if you live in a humid area, use the scissors in a humid environment, or want to store them for a long time.
