I am a fan of Gingher scissors and own several pairs including their duckbill applique (my favourite), spring actions dressmakers and sharpening stone. So when I needed some pinking shears this was my natural choice.

Unfortunately these just don't seem to live up to the quality of the rest of the product line. They are sturdy and feel well built but they are extremely stiff and difficult to work, I am not getting consistent good cutting results and the weight makes them difficult to handle as well as causing handache. In this rare case, I would recommend trying a cheaper, lighterweight brand. But for all your other dressmaking scissors, I still recommend try Gingher.

An Absolute Must-Have for Anyone Who Sews 2 Aug 2008
By delicateflower152 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My old Wiss pinking shears have lived a useful life, but are no longer sharp and no one sharpens scissors any more. I decided to treat my self to a pair of Ginghers because I've always known the company makes a quality product, but haven't been able to afford them until recently. What a treat! These scissors cut through fabric with no effort and are a wonderful tool for anyone who sews. Further, Gingher will sharpen them, when necessary and guarantees them for life. I was fortunate enough to purchase my Ginghers from an Amazon partner at an unbelievable price. I've also noticed that one can sometimes get a bargain from several on-line auction sites, but if you need pinking shears and can't or don't want to fool around with an auction, these are definitely worth paying full price for.

Build quality and performance on delicate fabrics were poor 13 Oct 2011
By John May - Published on Amazon.com
I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for and if you're going to spend money on something buy quality.

The Pinking shears I purchased were produced in Italy for Gingher. The shears were large, bulky and very stiff. I cut through canvas with no issues, however when trying to pink a sheer cotton, I could only get through half the cutting range before the shears became bound, and stretched the fabric. I borrowed another pair from the sewing parlour, which were not as bulky and made in Brazil which cut the delicate fabric with no issues.
I complained to Ginger and true to their reputation they promptly sent me another pair (Italian). Unfortunately it couldn't cut the delicate cotton on any part of the cutting range except for the last three teeth at the tip.

I have six other pairs of knife edge Gingher shears, and recommend them highly, but for Pinking shears I would look elsewhere, I went the Olfa rotary route for my lighter fabrics and will pull these out when working on heavier projects.

As for the build quality, there are unfinished portions of the shears from forging, and a lot of burs I had to remove from the bottom edges of the teeth. All the other Gingher products are so polished, that I was underwhelmed by the finish on both the purchased and replaced shears.

Cuts like a dream, but way too heavy 5 Sep 2010
By S. LaCour - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Gingher shears are known for their superb ability to cut through fabric and these pinking shears do not disappoint. They glide through tulle, cotton, felt and any other fabric with ease. The cost, however, is the strain on your hand due to their weight. The handles are not well-shaped for long-duration use - they wear grooves into my right hand after just a few minutes of use. The balance results in clean edges, but the shears are *not* ergonomically designed. For me to continuing using them, I'll need to purchase a support glove for my hand that will provide padding at the points where the metal digs into my skin. All-in-all, I would not purchase these again.

Stiff! 9 April 2009
By navyblue - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had these Gingher Pinking Shears on my wishlist for quite a while, when the price dropped recently I snatched them up. I'm disappointed to find they are very stiff and hard to use. I do have some carpal tunnel issues that have left me with weaker hand strength but even my husband thought these were tougher to open and close than they ought to be.

I'm hoping I can loosen the screw or oil them somehow. They do cut extremely well once I can get them through the fabric. I will update if I succeed in solving the stiffness.

Not Ginger's Main line --made for Fiscars 12 Mar 2012
By Tom R - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Very briefly, I ordered these from amazon.com. The photo shows the pinking shears in the usual gift tin. That is not what I received. I received a pair of scissors in a plastic box, examinations showed that the shears are not the same quality as the other Gingher scissors I have. Further examination showed that they were labeled as made for Fiskars. Apparently these are a cheaper version manufactured for sale by Fiscars (the cheap scissor company),

Checking ginger.com show their pinking shears do still come in the gift tin (which I use as storage boxes to protect the scissors. I shall complain to amazon about this deceptive listing and return the shears.
