Does Gingher need a review? If you spend any amount of time cutting fabric and haven't cut with Gingher, well you don't know what it can be like with a pair of scissors that cuts any fabric all the way to the tip like a razor. You don't have to use the inside of the blades to cut out little pieces with precision - the tips cut. No one, and by "no one" I mean NO ONE makes scissors like Gingher. You'll never sew without them once you own them. And if you are new to Gingher - take note, these are not a household scissors. Gingher owners know to warn their husbands and children that this is the one thing "off limits" to everyone else on earth. It is to only be used for fabric and only by its owner. It is a crime to ruin a pair of Gingher scissors by cutting paper or hair or anything else that it was not made to cut. Daughters wait to inherit these folks. Does Gingher really need a review? The great thing here is you aren't paying $50- I ask for my first pair for Mother's Day. Of course, I still own them. I purchased here for a gift, and couldn't believe the price was so low for a life-long, and longer, tool.
Purchased these at least two years ago and they are still sharp as the first day I used them! They were the first sewing shears I invested in and I've been incredibly overprotective of them. Now I know why my great-grandmother wanted to scream each time she saw me cutting construction paper with hers! I tie bakery twine on all my 'no touch' scissors and so far, so good! :)
The scissors are a good hefty weight. I am a clothes sewer as well as a quilter, and I need the shears to cut fabrics (blocks) that have been sewn together. They smoothly cut through the Seams, and leave my quilt pieces (blocks) in good "clean" condition. Yes, I can rotary cut them around the corners, but sometimes I like having the items in my hands to tweak the blocks. I also use them when cutting out wool fabrics for suits. The blades do beautifully in cutting through the denser strands of threads in suiting as well as coat weight woolen fabrics. Now, that being said, I also have a pair of these same scissors that I used, and still use, only to cut out pattern paper pieces. Expensive scissors to do this with, but they are, again, good blades and I use them happily in this process. I will order another pair next year for a spare. Happy sewing.
