My sister-in-law needs a new pair of pinking shears. Does anyone have some that they love? We've heard that Gingher is good quality, but heavy. I have Fiskars but they only cut cleanly if the fabric is held just the right way. She'd like some that are easy to handle and that cut nicely.

Thank you for any recommendations,
Ruth

All I can say is, for the love of god, don't get ginghers. They look so beautiful, cost so much, and are impossible to use, difficult to cut, stiff feeling, they just hang on my wall looking pretty.

My kai regular scissors are amazing, I would give them a whirl.
