Pallarės pruning shears 22cm
Hand made in Spain, by Pallarès, founded in 1917 and still making blades by hand today. Pallares Pruning Shears have a metallic handle and carbon steel blades,making a harder and stronger cutting blade than stainless steel. Carbon steel is also easier to sharpen. In return for its performance carbon steel will need a little bit of love and care, as it will tend to oxidise if not well maintained.To avoid rusting, it is recommended that carbon steel blades are kept oiled.
Do not soak it in water and never place it in the dishwasher.
To clean the knife, wipe the blade with a damp cloth and dry immediately.
To reduce the frequency of re-sharpening, wooden chopping boards are recommended.
If your carbon steel blade is beginning to rust, use a scouring pad and and acid, such as vinegar and gently rub it on the affected area. After the rust has been removed, dry the blade, re-sharpen and oil to prevent future rusting.
