Well, the name pretty much gives it away! I saw this tip on a sewing show not too long ago.
When trimming curved seams, you're often supposed to clip the inner curves or notch the outer curves. Using pinking shears is a really quick and easy way to cut notches.

There are now pinking rotary cutters. I have one and I really like it.

Yep, I think pinking shears are making a comeback. I grew up with them! Love them for serger curves and corners too.

I've been doing this for a little while now ... didn't realize it was a secret. LOL Works like a charm, as well.
