Today I bought some sewing shears that have one very finely serrated blade and one unserrated blade. It says on the package that the serrated blade grips slippery or thick fabrics and makes it easier to cut them. They are not kidding! I can hardly believe it, but cutting slippery fabrics with these scissors is actually FUN! I suspect they'll make cutting fleece and other knits easier too, but I'll get back to you on that once I confirm it.
My shears were made by Clauss, but other companies may make them as well. The store where I bought mine (Fabricland Canada) also had a left-handed version of what appeared to be the same shears.
What a great little item this is! I didn't even know these existed, and now they're my favorite shears ever. :)
P.S. I'll post a photo when I get a chance. On the Clauss website, the item with the same product number as mine [18080] doesn't mention being serrated. So either they've changed the product number, OR they use a different number in Canada, OR the description just doesn't bother mentioning the serration.

I had always wondered if those shears really worked! Thanks for passing along the info - I guess I'm going to have to get a pair!

Thank you for your post. I have one pair of Clauss scissors and they are just small embroidery curved scissors, but are superior to all the others that I have purchased since
