Proper care of blades, combs and cutters extends the life and usability of these tools.

Oil! We can't stress enough the importance of proper lubrication. Frequent oiling while clipping and shearing reduces the amount of wear and tear on blades, combs and cutters.
Proper tension:
1. Overtensioning reduces the longevity of blades/combs/cutters.
2. Undertensioning will reduce cutting ability.
Clean equipment after use and coat with oil to prevent rust.
Do your best to not "air-shear". This happens when an operating clipper or shear is held outside of the fiber (usually happens when someone is thinking about the next cut to make). The extra friction creates heat and dulls cutting equipment.
