Ginghers are our absolute favourite brand of scissors and shears. they're extremely high quality, and very very sharp. Gentle spring action opens shears after each cut reducing effort; great for those whose hands get tired when cutting, or who have repetitive strain injuries. Bent handles create a comfortable working position. Longer length of cut is ideal for patterns and trimming seams. Sharp, strong knife edge cuts multiple layers of fabric. Safety latch provides protection and keeps shears closed when not in use. Durable double-plated chrome over nickel finish.
