You will find many competitors of ours claiming that they offer their customers with the best manufactured shears, but upon closer look you might be surprised to learn that they aren’t even involved in the manufacturing process. This is what separates iShears from the rest, we are an intimate part of the manufacturing process of our shears. This is why we thought it necessary to give readers and our customers a glimpse into the manufacturing process that we employ to produce our line of superior shears.
The Raw Material
The best shears in the market are made using steel. Substandard shears are made from brittle steel which aren’t made for professionals at all. We use absolutely the best raw material for the production of our shears; cobalt steel. If you ask anyone in the industry, they will tell you that cobalt is as good as it gets.
We select special Japanese cobalt as raw material for the manufacture of iShears, making our products the best in the business. Cobalt makes for reliable, durable and smooth shears that are the envy of shear makers all over the globe.
There are two basic ways of manufacturing shears, casting and forging. With casting the steel is melted and poured in a cast of a piece. The shears made through casting are brittle, lose their sharpness and don’t last very long. In forging, the metal is shaped or ‘forged’ into the blade, resulting in a much stronger shear that can stand the test of time. You can guess the process we utilize; forging is why iShears products are in such high demand.
Grinding and Polishing
After the forging of the shears, the next step is making the shears presentable. This is a two part process, the first part being the grinding the steel into perfect shape. All the soot and grime is cleared off the metal and they are made ready for polishing. Next comes polishing of the blades; this brings out the true face of the steel.
In this phase the blades are attached together with a screw or a rivet. We use screws as they can be adjusted by the consumers to adjust the movement of the shears whenever they want. There is a plating process which protects the shears from harm from the nature’s elements. After a thorough quality assurance process, the shears are ready to be shipped to customers.
