Blade condition is critical to the effective operation of your shear. Failure to hone your blade as recommended will result in premature blade failure and poor cutting performance. Blades are NOT covered by warranty; take care of yours and it will last many years.
- The blade must ALWAYS be mounted with the flat side toward the table.
- Use hand protection at all times when handling the blade – blades are VERY sharp!
- It is not necessary to remove the small nicks or chips from the blade edge when sharpening or honing.
