Pinking Shears feature notched, sawtooth blades that leave a zig-zag pattern along your fabric edge. This limits the length of frayed threads to help prevent unraveling. Use these shears to keep your fabric under control! Before these were an invention, a pinking punch or pinking iron was used to punch out a decorative hem on a garment. The punch would be hammered by a mallet against a hard surface. Therefore, the punch would cut through the fabric. In 1874, an improvement to the design was sure to include a pair of handles.
The 9-1/2 inch pinking shears have stainless steel blades and feature a red and gray handle. An ergonomically sculpted handle provides unmatched cutting control and comfort. Cut for hours comfortably! The cutting length of the high-quality blades is approximately 3-inches. Also for use with ribbon, paper, and other materials to add decorative edging.
