8" Gingher Spring-Action Knife-edge Dressmaker Shears, heavy duty fabric scissors

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Long, precision-ground, knife-edge blades designed for easily cutting heavy fabrics or multiple layers in long swathes. The spring-action design opens the blades after each cut. This is intended to reduce hand fatigue, however it does also mean that more force is required to close them. People with hand injuries or arthritis may or may not find these shears easier to use, depending on which motions are less painful. Features a flip safety catch that keeps shears closed when not in use.

Nickel blades are double-coated with chrome for durability. The bent handles help hold the blades at a flatter angle when cutting. Overall design of these shears marries force with precision for cutting a wide variety of fabric weights cleanly.

8" long (20 cm)

Come particularly sharp, and can be resharpened.
New and in original packaging. Full lifetime warranty.

Made in Italy.
