    Default Re: Sharpening sewing scissors

    Fiskars has different grades of scissors. Not all respond to sharpening the same, or have the same life between sharpenings. Not sure which ones you have but now may be the time to upgrade instead. $8 to $10 bucks for sharpening? Or $20 for a new pair which perform better.

    The Razor Edge series has thicker blades for less flex- larger bearing surface at the joint, and bigger nut. The steel is a better grade which holds the edge longer. And I like the shape and the soft grips much better.

    Some sharpener guys I've talked to look down their noses at Fiskars. I also have some Kai, Gingher, MKB, and Wiss. I'll pick up the Fiskars every time.
    No- I'm not the test dummy for your dog's behavioral training class.

    I love my old Wiss, all 6 pair. Got some Fiskars and they just hang on the wall.

    I forget where I heard this one: You know the knives that come in the butcher block and have that piece with the set that you sharpen your knives with, guess what I sharpened my scissors just fine with that thing.Click image for larger version.
