  • Pinking Shears....

    .....does anyone know how I can sharpen mine?

    They've got a blunt patch halfway along the blade, and they weren't cheap to buy, to I don't want to have to replace them.

    Thanks!

      I Heard that Tip...

      ...but I got it the wrong way about. I was told to cut through glass paper as foil just made thing worse.

      I was wrong obviously...going out to buy foil tomorrow when I get home, especially as my pinkers are Fiskars too, like the lady's who wrote the tip.

      Thanks for that! I'll let you know if it works!

        I use it to sharpen my punches and it works on them - never would have hough about using it on pinking shears! Also if they get stuck try greaseproof paper - thats works with punches too to get them going again!

              Wey Heyyyy!!!!

              .....it worked.

              Took me four days to remember to buy foil, but once I finally remembered I tried it....brilliant!

              Dare I try it on my spring-loaded dressmaking shears? Yes I dare...and it worked on them too....all three pairs!

              I think I've just saved myself about £90 worth of scissors....

              I AM IMPRESSED!!!!
