These Pinking Shears cut a zigzag edge that helps prevent fraying, just like our standard Pinking Shears, and the addition of Softgrip to the handle helps reduce hand fatigue on big jobs. 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 with Softgrip provide unmatched cutting control and comfort, and a bent handle design keeps materials flat for precise cuts every time.
Top Customer Reviews
Some users have complained that the blades are too hard to close. The shears are stiff. I put WD-40 on the pivot points and loosened the screw a tiny bit. They will always feel stiff if compared to straight cutting scissors because more cloth is cut when cutting a zig-zag pattern.than when cutting straight across. I cut several cloths at once so the shears will definitely feel tighter when cutting multiple thicknesses together.
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!)
