  • I run a sharpening training school so if I can be of any help

    Hi,
    before you try old remedies and perhaps ruin Pinkers or a pair of lovely old dressmaking scissors, ask me if I think it's a good idea or not.
    I am more than willing to offer advice wherever I can.
    Regards
    Robin

    Hi Robin,
    I have dropped a few pairs of dressmaking scissors and they are never the same!

      When you drop scissors they can often develop small nicks in the blades and need to be polished or ground out by a professional. They can also just go out of balance which can be corrected easily by adjusting the screw or bolt yourself and applying a bit is scissor oil.
      I hope this helps

        Beware of touting for business on this forum as we have very strict advertising rules. May I suggest you read them before going any further. This is a craft forum and I have no doubt that grinding/sharpening scissors is a craft but plying for trade is advertising. Bearing that in mind Welcome to the forum.

          One way of sharpening scissors and pinking shears [so I 've been told] is to cut up kitchen foil. What do you think about that?

            I have read this before, but I just cannot see how this could be beneficial based on how an edge needs to be polished.
            I would advise against this practice without hesitation

              Also, the flat edge of pinkers is the only bit that is touched when sharpening, so cutting foil is definitely a bad thing to do.
