Our programme offers three quality grades:
All three names are registered Trade Marks.
This brand name stands for top grade quality and indicates, at the same
time, that the requirements of the SOLINGEN Code of Product Quality
and of all relevant DIN Specifications are surpassed by far. In other
words: ROBUSO shears and scissors are cutting implements designed for
ROBUSO Shears and Scissors are made of hot-forged
high-purity specialty steel, with the 'industrial' model versions made
of C 60 high carbon steel (= HRC 57-59) for proven "well above
average" cutting efficiency.
The forged blanks are subjected to a hardening process, with the blades
preground in modern automated wet grinding systems inside and out, as
a result of which the inner sides feature a distinct hollow ground surface.
The next production steps are the responsibility of highly qualified
and experienced ROBUSO staff:
Hand-grinders grind, glaze and polish the blades and handles manually
inside and out.
The eye precision finish grinder takes care of the inner and outer eye
The nickel-plater finishes the ground steel surfaces by way of mirror-finish
nickel-plating the eyes and handles - and the grinder removes the nickel
layer from the inside of the hollow ground blade surfaces to produce
a keen long-life cutting edge. A point worth noting: the inner surfaces
of high-quality shears are never nickel-plated.
The finished parts are then passed to the joint
finisher for precision
mating, which also includes finish-grinding of the cutting edge, and
fitting of the screw. Both the grinding operators and the joint finisher
are responsible for the even and smooth cutting efficiency of ROBUSO
Shears and Scissors.
The final step is the performance test: Each product item is subjected
to an efficiency test routine with the material it is designed and intended
for: Grey cotton cloth, lining silk, wafer-thin curtain fabrics, leather,
Aramide products, etc. One of the major requirements is to ascertain
that all specimen are perfectly severed in an effortless straight-through
cut over the complete blade length.
ROBUSO Shears and Scissors are the result of painstaking care applied
during all production sequences involved, ca. 80% of which are handcrafted.
Lacquer-finished handles/eyes coloured wine-red, red/black or blue are
padded with a soft, transparent plastic coat (polyurethane). Every product
detail is subjected to stringent quality control inspections to ascertain
that ROBUSO Shears and Scissors deserve the "Master-crafted" merit.
ROBUR/SOLINGEN/Quality refers to good SOLINGEN-Product quality standard
- normally made of forged and hardened plain steel, properly machined.
The production involves ca. 40% of manual work. Handles/Eyes are of black
lacquer-finish. Our ROBUR product range is limited to the most widely
used conventional models.
PELLORO/Quality refers to imported products, quality-controlled and
modified by us - if necessary. PELLORO products are - as indicated by
price - of "Economy" quality. Their production involves ca.
20% of manual work. Handles/Eyes are of black lacquer-finish.
We are always open-minded towards special requirements and, thus, capable
