Diamond Edge Scissors Guarantee..

The Diamond Edge Brand Scissors Lifetime
Guarantee


Our
"Diamond Edge” brand has always been a guarantee of fine quality and our
scissors fully maintain this standard. We offer a lifetime guarantee on all our
"Diamond Edge” brand scissors against manufacturing defects during the lifetime
of the scissors, subject to and limited by the exceptions of normal wear and
tear and any damage caused through accidental damage, misuse or lack of
maintenance.




Caring For Your Diamond Edge Brand
Scissors



As
with any precision equipment a little easy maintenance of your scissors will
ensure that optimum performance is maintained to extend their working life. When blades become dulled and blunt through
use then having your scissors professionally sharpened will restore them to
peak performance. "The Diamond Edge Scissor and Clipper Blade Sharpening
Service” - will restore your scissors to
health as well as conducting a maintenance check and replacing and screws and
stoppers as required though normal wear and tear




Maintenance of Your Diamond Edge
Brand Scissors



After
use wipe the scissors clean with a soft cloth and apply a light coating of oil
to the blades, a drop of oil to the head of the screw and under the joints,
wiping off any excess oil. Oiling after use takes only a few moments and is
particularly important for carbon steel scissors. Carbon steel is usually harder than
stainless steel but is prone to corrosion, particularly if used or stored in
humid conditions.



Store scissors in a closed
position, preferably protecting the blades in a wallet or case,and either
hang them or place them flat where they cannot be damaged. Avoid them being
placed loose in a ‘toolbox’ where constant rifling for equipment can cause
unnecessary damage.




Scissors
Blade Damage.



If scissors are
dropped during use or are knocked onto the floor they often land with the
blades open and this is likely to result in a ‘nick’ in the blade edge.



With straight scissors this can
be felt as a resistance when closing the blade and cause a ‘miss’ in the
cutting action. Continuing to use may result in further damage and
unsatisfactory cutting. Damage to the blade edge is repairable in most cases.



With thinning scissors a nick can
cause the blades to ‘catch’ and not close at all. DO NOT force the scissors
closed as this may cause more damage or result in a broken tooth. If thinning
scissors catch and won’t close, gently lift the blades apart to clear the nick
and close them, do not use them until you have had them repaired.

Clipper Blade Care



Storage and maintenance – As
with any precision equipment a little simple maintenance of your
clipper blades will ensure that they remain sharp for as long as
possible and are always ready for use when you next need them.


After use
brush out any hair and wipe the blades with a clean rag or paper towel.
Lightly oil the blades, across the tips of the teeth in particular, and
wipe off any excess oil. If the blades remain fixed to the clipper
always re-fit the blade guard, if supplied, to prevent possible damage
to the teeth. For removable cutterheads, once the blades have been
cleaned and oiled, replace them in your blade box or rack. If you do not
anticipate using the blade again for a while, wrap the blade in paper
towel or clean rag which will, in time, become impregnated with oil and
keep moisture at bay. Blades stored in damp and humid conditions can
become corroded which will lead to a loss of cutting performance.



Clipper Blade Damage



Unfortunately
it is almost inevitable that, at some time, your clipper and blades may
be knocked to the floor and damaged. It is all too easy to catch a foot
in a trailing clipper lead and pull everything onto the floor.


In
some cases no damage will occur, but often the blades can become
mis-aligned, begin to wobble on the clippers in use, or sustain damage
to the teeth. Most problems can be resolved but, unfortunately broken
teeth cannot be fixed. It may sometimes be possible to round off the
broken tooth to enable the blade to be kept as a spare for emergency
use. However extreme care should be taken when using a damaged blade. If
in doubt, please send the blade to us for attention and we will advise
if we feel that the blade is too badly damaged to be used safely.
Problems with the cutting performance can also be caused by damaged
teeth, as the hair can be dragged between the blades rather than cut
cleanly.



 If
you are experiencing any particular problems with the cutting
performance of any of your blades then please send them, with an
explanatory note, to the Diamond Edge Service Inspection and correction.

Clipper Care



Storage and maintenance – A little simple maintenance of your clipper will ensure that they work efficiently and safely without any problems.



After
use brush away any hair from the blades and blade drive at the front of
the clipper. Check and clean any air filters to maintain the airflow
through the clipper and prevent overheating. Do not wind the cable
around the clipper, but coil it loosely to prevent damage to the cable
where it enters either the clipper or the plug. If you notice the cable
is damaged or split, stop using the clippers immediately and have the
cable repaired or replaced by an electrician or through our Repair
Service. If you wish to carry out some routine maintenance of your
clipper, the gear box, blade attachment assemblies and carbon brushes
can and should be checked periodically to ensure they are not choked
with hair, needing lubrication or are showing signs of wear and needing
replacement.



If the clippers are in
regular daily use and live out ready for use, we would suggest they are
hung up or placed in a clipper holder to keep them safe and remove the
risk of being knocked onto the floor and damaged.



Clipper Damage



If
your clippers are dropped and you are not sure if they have been
damaged, we would suggest the following; firstly, unplug from the supply
and carry out a visual inspection of the clippers. If there is no
immediate sign of damage to the clipper housing or blade assembly, it
should be safe to plug in and switch on. However if the clippers make
any unusual noises or do not work at all, switch off immediately and
have them checked out by an electrician or other competent person. Even a
clipper that appears to be working satisfactorily may have some
internal damage which may cause other problems in time. If you are ever
in any doubt about the safety of using a clipper which has been dropped,
don’t use it, get it checked out. Click here for our Clipper Dryer and Repair Service.

Clipper Blade Sharpening Service




Inevitably your scissors and clipper blades will require
sharpening and, for best efficiency and performance, it is important to
keep your tools in peak condition.



The Diamond Edge Scissor Sharpening Service restores the
performance of your scissors and clipper blades. We sharpen scissors and sharpen
clipper blades at our own dedicated workshop in Brighton
using a multi-stage process to ensure that your valuable equipment is restored
to peak performance.




Scissor Sharpening- We will endeavour to sharpen
scissors of all types however, if we feel that sharpening your
scissors may not be worthwhile for any reason, we will contact you for
further instructions.




Stage 1- Strip down & inspect scissors for wear
and damage.



Stage 2- Hollow grind scissor blades when necessary,
clean joints and re-assemble.



Stage 3- Clean and polish scissors and screw.

required**.



Stage 6- Replace worn or missing stoppers. Reset
scissor handles to align tips.



Stage 7 - Polish tips to remove any roughness.



Stage8 - Test for performance and lubricate
joints.
























**Micro-serrations are,
as the name suggests,very fine grooves machined into the cutting edges of
your scissors, as can be seen in the picture below. They help to grip the hair
and reduce blade "fatigue" when the cutting edges may begin to become
dull through constant use. Many new scissors are now supplied with one scissor
blade micro-serrated. When scissor sharpening, any existing
serrations are inevitably removed, so should be specified if you wish them to
be replaced.
