Swanstrom will recondition cutters and pliers for a nominal fee.
Last I checked (about 8 months ago), it was $7 to refurbish a pair of
cutters and $6 per pair of pliers. Per their website, this includes
"Cleaning, joint adjustment, honing, re-pointing of tips, polishing,
new springs, new foam handles, lubrication, and demagnetizations."
They will re-condition ALL brands, not just Swanstrom. Information
can be found at
or you can call them 1-800-287-8872. My company sent about 12 pairs
of severely abused cutters and pliers to them and we got them back
in like-new condition in less than two weeks. If they can’t refurbish
something, they will call you and send it back, no charge. No
affiliation, just a satisfied customer.
