Could you be Unintentionally
Damaging your Thinners and Blenders?
It is incredibly easy to unintentionally damage your shears if you are not using them properly. It is hard to believe, but applying even the slightest pressure on the outside blade of your thinners and chunkers (with your thumb) can damage them instantly. We have seen this happen many times over the years. When pressure is applied to the outside blade (with your thumb), this forces the blades to come into direct contact, which can either cause them to stop closing (with high pressure) or damage the blades of the shear over time with even slight pressure from rubbing. We demonstrate this in greater detail in our YouTube video below.
