7. Can the blades be taken apart like other shears?
Answer: No, unless you use a wrench for the bolt which we don't suggest that you do. Majority of our customers don't struggle with washing and cleaning them even after cutting raw meat. You may use soap and water. Some use gentle brushes to further clean the pivot area.
Make sure to rinse them thoroughly and wipe them dry after washing them with soap or other cleansing solution as traces of chemicals may also stain or damage the metal of the shears.
