I just got my Gingher shears back in the mail and… what’s that saying about ” like cutting through butter?” I find I just want to use them. I’m cutting fabric that doesn’t need to be cut. This may sound strange, but, I just like the way it feels. There is just enough resistance to appreciate the seemingly effortless effort the scissor has to make to slice through the fabric. It is like cutting through warm butter. Creamy around the edges, you only begin to feel the blade when it meets the firm center of the butter. Somehow it’s the same with fabric, smooth and clean, more like slices than cuts. I’m especially enjoying cutting through cotton batting, it’s like eating cotton candy.
Once I figured it out, it was so easy. ( And thanks again to the person who suggested it on my blog) I just sent Gingher the scissors with a note that I wanted the scissors sharpened and a check for $7.50. Three weeks later, here they are! They also recommend a sharpening stone. I’ll let you know how that works out.
