Fiskars top-quality Pinking Shears feature sawtooth blades that leave a zigzag pattern instead of a straight edge, helping to prevent fraying and keep your projects looking their best. High-grade, stainless-steel blades feature a precision-ground edge that stays sharp longer and cuts all the way to the tip — essential for anyone who cuts fabric. An ergonomically sculpted handle provide unmatched cutting control, and a bent handle design keeps materials flat for precise cuts every time.

The description on the product's wrapping states that they are "softgrip." They are not - as evidenced by the blister on the inside of my thumb. It also states that they reduce "hand fatigue." Again, I beg to differ. After attempting to cut with one hand, I finally resorted to using two - which didn't accomplish anything..........other than to irritate me. And as for the statement that these shears improve cutting accuracy: NOT! The design of the shears makes it impossible to accurately gauge the right-hand edge of the fabric.
For sewers who are interested in neatly - and accurately - trimming a fabric edge in a minimal amount of time, I do NOT recommend these pinking shears. And a note to those who do decide to purchase them: WIPE DOWN THE BLADES and cut on scrap fabric BEFORE using them on your good material. The shears that I received had a "dirty" film that required a good bit of rubbing to remove.
I wish I had read some of the critical reviews BEFORE purchase, so that I could see what the problem was going to be. As stated by many reviewers, these are indeed VERY STIFF scissors..
Another reviewer said the shears became easier after the screw holding them together was loosened. I tried this, and I can use the scissors now. Still not great comfort but a marginal "ok." The loosening of the side-screw did help. NOTE THOUGH: For me, loosening took some doing because the side screw is smooth and round. As such, it does not have any notches to grab onto, but I managed to loosen them with a rugged thick-grab pair of pliers. At least, I can now use them.
TO FISKARS: I think "stiffness" should be an issue to be considered under "comfort." Of course - I could-have should-have read all of the reviews that Amazon has to help customers make decisions. (Thank you, Amazon. I shoulda looked!)
Being a naturally frugal person, that meant doing some price checking between brick & mortar stores and the internet. Amazon had the best prices of anywhere, whether or not I had a coupon!
Fiskars is a great brand that delivers dependably sharp shears. It's also my go-to brand for sewing shears. I also want my sewing shears to NOT resemble the everyday shears used for paper, hair, and other stuff that dulls their edge. This pair delivered on every front I wanted it to except one.
They aren't that easy to use if you have reduced hand/arm strength. These scissors are the traditional style, with a soft grip surface on the handles. They are not the squeeze type like I use to cut fabric with that are much easier to use. For some reason, when I ordered these, I thought I had chosen the squeeze type. (that's not the scissors' fault!) With that said, I decided that these would work, as I am normally cutting lightweight fabrics in limited quantities with a pair of pinking shears. If I ever decide to take up mega-sewing with satin, I would probably try the pinking blades for my rotary cutter. These are sharp, work well even if my arm/hand isn't that strong, and will do the job as long as I keep them stashed out of sight when my granddaughter is visiting. (Kids love pinking shears for paper, but it ruins them for fabric--get them their own crafting scissors with fancy edges to spare your shears!)
