How do I wash my apparel?
We recommend washing all garments in cool water inside out to protect the prints and clean the dirt off best. Light agitation or delicate cycle is best. We also recommend air dry all garments if possible to avoid cracking of designs and or shrinkage. If you must tumble dry your garments do so inside out, low heat, and delicate cycle.
For cleaning headwear, we recommend the old-school method… by hand with mild detergent and air dry only.
* Do not wash in hot water or bleach or high agitation settings
*Do not iron over any designs or on nylon based items
How do I loosen the bolt on my ER LIFE ONE SHEAR™?
We have made it easy to adjust with are coin/ flat head bolt system. Typical reasons to tighten is to increase the cutting ability or if too loose… ie flopping around
Reasons to loosen are to tight to open or close and or cleaning. Note the tighter the shear is the better it cuts.
*Hint: Small increments are needed for tightening or loosening.
My ER LIFE ONE SHEAR™ is too tight?
- Add a drop of oil or wd40 to center bolt areas
- Open and close rapidly (watch finger as it can cut them off)
- Loosen the center bolt a small increment. (the shears should open with some force as allowing the blades to have tight registration. At no point should you be able to hold one handle and the other drops on its own. By doing that nothing will cut and the center bolt will come off.)

What should I clean my ER LIFE ONE SHEAR™ with?
We recommend doing the cleaning with bleach products for sanitizing. Common other items used in the field are Cavi/ Sani wipes. These wipes should be used sparingly as it could change the appearance of the coating to a more black/ golden haze. If the coating becomes hazy use some oil/ gun oil to restore the deepened black look.
We do recommend oiling the center bolt if immersed or cleaned heavily to restore the ease of opening and closing. Also, the DLC coating typically should have oil applied to the metal once a month for precaution and basic maintenance. Again this is a tool, not a toy.,
*Even if the black appearance changes the integrity of the steal and or cutting abilities will not be harmed.
This premium steel and coating are not for everyone. But for those of you who know your steel and coatings, it’s a badass one!
Are ER LIFE© ONE SHEARS™ Ambidextrous (AKA left and Right hand-friendly?
Yes, they are the only shear on the market that can cut left and right-handed without significant strain or cutting issues. The handles were engineered to be neutral in position and can be gripped easily. Most left-hand cutters have issues due to the ergonomic curve a RIGHTY shear. This shear has no additional curvature in the handles. Why does it still cut great? Because of the neutral handles and the razor-sharp premium M390 Bohler steel. We have done extensive testing with our employees and others who are left-handed and they love them!
Do you offer custom orders?
