For the uninitiated, pinking shears are specialized sewing scissors whose sawtooth blades interlock to cut a specialized square zig zag. When cutting fabric, this zig zag ensures that the threads won't unravel and fray (which is why you sometimes see a zig zag on the interior of single hemmed garments and linens). hey also make that same cheeky pattern when cutting paper or other flat mediums. We coveted our mother's ancient pair so hard that we practically jumped for joy when we saw this pleasingly substantial pair, hand-forged in Spain. 7"
About the line: Exquisite hand-forged blades and tools, crafted and honed in a 100+ year old workshop in Solsona, Spain. The blades are made in the same manner than they have been for over 400 years, tempered with blessings to Saint Eligius, the patron saint of knife makers. The resulting tools are beautiful, easier to hone, slower to dull, and precision sharp for generations-plenty of time to search for the Six Fingered Man.
