I finally settled on a new pair of scissors to buy and I went with a pair of Gingher 7″ Knife-Edge Dressmaker’s Shears. So many people seemed to swear by them and really, I’m a sucker for anything that looks kind of classic and old timey. My grandma had a pair of Ginghers too, so I figure I’m carrying on a tradition, if nothing else.
They came with this official little storage case, all velvet-lined and such. I’d like to think I’ll store them in here when I’m not using them, but I wouldn’t put any money on that if I were you.
They are a bit on the small side, considering I was thinking about getting some gigantic 10″ Tailor’s Shears, but I’ve got small hands and a small apartment, so 7″ is probably just about right.
Now I just need some free time so I can use them.
