As a professional home economist, I have enjoyed Gingher scissors for many years. I ordered these scissors expecting the same high quality I am accustomed to. I was very disappointed when I discovered that they were manufactured in Mexico, felt awkward and heavy in my hand. These are not the precision, quality scissors I was expecting. Quality Gingher manufactured in Brazil and Italy. I immediately returned the scissors for a credit. Unfortunately, Overstock charged return postage. I was hopeful that since the product was inferior, that I would not be charged for return postage!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of these Gingher scissors in inferior to those made in Italy and Brazil
These scissors are so much more expensive at fabric stores...even with discount coupons. They are great quality and stay sharp for years if not abused. This was a great purchase. I bought a pair for my 29yr old daughter for her birthday and purchased a pair for myself.

My daughter is majoring in textiles, so she needs a good pair of sewing shears. I called the textiles department at her school and they recommended the Gingher. I sent them to her for Christmas so I don't have any feedback yet. However, I trust the recommendation from her school.

Where are the scissors made that I will receive if I order these?
One answer below states Italy, but a reviewer said Mexico. I want to be certain before I purchase them. Thank you.firefly57 on Sep 27, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
