Risk Of Carpel Tunnel Nerve Damage

Not only will this cutting tool allow the hairdresser to create the very best hair cuts and styles for their clients, it will also protect from over extension of the middle finger, which reduces carpal tunnel nerve damage and other health related problems caused by improperly fitted shears.

Traditional shear design allows your hand to misalign causing dexterity strain and other pressure.

Shark Fin® shears patented handles help to properly align nerves and tendons in the professional hairdresser's hand, which can also greatly reduce the risk of tendonitis, arm pain, nerve damage, neck and shoulder pain, and back pain.

Like everything else in the world, you get what you pay for.  Shark Fin® Shears are not inexpensive but then the hairdresser is making a long term investment in their tools, health of their bodies and protection of their fingers and hands when they purchase the very best shears like can.

Taking Good Care Of Your Shark Fin® Shears

If a professional hairdresser purchases a set of Shark Fin® shears it is very important to treat them with the utmost care.

Take care of your Shark Fin® shears and they'll take care of you.  The company advises hairdressers who purchase and use the Shark Fin® shears to take very good care of them to insure a long life for these valuable hairdressing tools.

Use Scissor Oil

Proper lubrication and blade adjustment will extend the life of the blades and reduce the amount of times that your shear will need to be sharpened. If you own a swivel shear, lubricate the swivel joint as needed.

The pros at Shark Fin® recommend you use  a cloth saturated with scissor oil to completely wipe the inside of your scissor blades after each and every cut.  This step reduces friction caused by "metal to metal" contact. This step also allows for longer lasting edges between each sharpening.

Religiously wiping the blades after each use with oil also reduces build-up of chemicals and debris.

Check Blade Tension

If you are a hairdresser who cuts hair every day it's also important to check the blade tension every single day. This allows you to relax your grip and reduces fatigue in your hand.

Check For Tiny Particles & Other Debris

Each week, carefully open your shears to a 90-degree angle, loosen the adjustment knob just enough to fit a paper towel between the pivot point and push out particles and debris.

Store In Closed Position

When you're not snipping or cutting, keep shear blades in the closed position to reduce chances of nicks and damage.
