Why should dog grooming scissors be oiled?

As well as cleaning your dog grooming scissors and ensuring the tension is correctly set, it is vital to keep your scissors oiled at all times.  

As all our dog grooming scissors are crafted from 440c Japanese stainless steel, it is important to use an oil designed specially to lubricate stainless steel scissors. This is vitally important because many ordinary oils are made from petroleum and is made up of long and short chains of carbon and hydrogen atoms. As a result under certain conditions, the short-chain molecules evaporate and the unstable molecules oxidise and break down. Ordinary oils also contain substances such as sulphur, waxes and unstable hydrocarbons which can produce sticky residue deposits on the blades. This sticky residue can prevent the dog grooming scissors working efficiently.

The scissor oil we offer here at Abbfabb Grooming Scissors, is made specially using a process which alters the molecular structure to ensure that each molecule is uniform in size, shape, and weight. This ensures that the molecules do not break down and as a result, do not produce a smell or residue. This oil has been designed to produce the ultimate lubricant for dog grooming scissors.
