good idea.
What I have done in the past (one time) is to saturate the pliers with WD40 in a plastic zip lock bag. Seal it up and reopen in a week. Good to go!
Liquid wrench or anything like that would also work.

I old and close mine under running water for a few minutes and they move like new. Too bad the blades are crazy dull now though. Had to do some wiring recently and I swear scissors would have worked better!

A) Those aren't pliers; they're side cutters
B) Spend more than $7 on a set...
C) Did you bury them in the back yard over winter or something?

I just used CLR!!!

I just did that on two sets. Sat them in a bowl for a while. They come back to life!

Neat idea though.

C)no but low quality metal plus saltwater = rust

CLR and any thing that works for me costs more mony and I'm cheep this was free :)

drop of olive oil on the hinge. Works great, reef safe. Been using the same cutters now for 20 years. And, if I ever eat them, they'll taste good and provide lots of iron.

I know it's not the cheapest option but I have been pretty happy with this set.
It should last a LONG time with proper care.

The bone cutters included really do cut through just about anything.

If I break these ones I'm making a trip to a medical supply office.

no, not you....

another free option to keep your side cutters/plyers working, is to actualy rince them with fresh water and dry them when you are done.
