Care and maintenance is the key element in achieving maximum performance from your Ninja Scissors. Failure to perform proper care and maintenance on a regular basis will most likely result in a damaged scissors and unsatisfactory performance.


Using a soft chamois cloth, thoroughly wipe your scissors and blades after every cut. This will reduce build-up of chemicals and debris, which may adversely affect the performance of your scissors throughout your workday. At the end of the day wipe the blades and pivot area of your scissors before storing them.


After cleaning and drying your scissors, Add a drop of Ninja scissor oil to the pivot area to achieve an optimum cutting performance. Open and close the scissors several times to spread the oil evenly. It assists the cleaning process by washing out dirt and debris from under the pivot and leaves a wax like coating. This should be done at least once a week.

Tension Adjustment

Test the tension by opening and closing your scissors carefully. When the tension is set properly, the blades of the scissors should close gently, not fall shut, hardly any pressure is needed in cutting to close the scissors.

All Ninja Scissors have special adjustable screw systems for fine adjustment of the tension. Using the adjusting tool provided with your scissors, turn the screw clockwise to tighten the tension or counter-clockwise to loosen it. Then check again for correct tension.


When not in use, your scissors should be wiped clean of any hair or product residue stored in a safe, dry location. We strongly recommend you store your scissors in the case provided with your purchase.
