    Warranty Examples

    Sarah has received a new pair of Jaguar Scissors yesterday. She goes to try them out, but the screw is loose and can't tighten at all. It just keeps loosely turning over and over again. She is concerned and emails the Japan Scissors team.

    She places the scissors back in the original box and packaging and returns this back to the address given. After receiving these, the Japan Scissors team inspects them, confirms the problem and either fixes this immediately or sends out another pair as a replacement. Sarah gets the working pair and starts cutting without any further problems. 

    If you have issues with the scissors' sharpness, you can return them in the first 7 days for an exchange or replacement. After this period, you can send your scissors to a scissor sharpener to have the blades sharpened to perfection.
