Make light trimming easier with these 5-inch classic embroidery scissors from Gingher. These scissors have a stronger frame perfect for cutting one layer of fabric, multiple strands of embroidery thread and even lighter needlework yarn.
This scissors is very sharp and well made. It can reach very close to the thread to cut it clean. My only complaint is that it did not come with a protective sheath as advertised. Other than that, it has many uses (i.e. trimming hairs, cutting papers, etc, etc.)
I've had a pair of these for 10 years. I needed a replacement after I dropped them and searched everywhere. I had also looked over the past 5-f years for a pair for my mother and never found them. What a great surprise when I found them here and for more than 50% off the store price! These are the best scissors I own for snipping threads, trimming applique, and carry them with me when I take small projects.

I bought the 5 inch Gingher scissors to use next to my sewing machine & serger to snip the threads. The scissors are light weight, and are very sharp. I have had the Gingher Fabric Scissors for 22 years and they are still as sharp as the day I got them- ie. they are a great brand to invest in!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. great quality-
I bought these mainly to de-knot a long-haired cat. The felt-like pads are very difficult to remove, but I've found that very sharp scissors with sharp pointy ends help a great deal.. These scissors do a GREAT job. They have the pointiest ends of any scissors this size that I've found. They can be pushed into the knot from the side, much more easily than any other scissors I've tried. And, these scissors are super sharp - they cut through the cat felt very easily. It seems the steel is of very high quality so I expect they will remain sharp for a long time. Because these are just basically very good quality scissors, they perform well at all sorts of purposes.
As others mentioned, these do not come with the leather sheath pictured. Too bad, since they have very sharp points as mentioned. But for me it's not a big deal. For some reason I expected these to be a little larger. I measured, and they are exactly 5 inches long, but they seem kinda small. The only real downside, for me, is that the handles are a little too small for my fingers (I have average guy sized hands). I wish these were available with the larger handles. I can use them, but they're a bit uncomfortable. They should be fine for most women and for men who have smaller hands. For guys with large hands, forget it.
Nice scissors with Old World quality - they kind they DON'T make in China.
