Gingher Gold-handled Dressmaker Shears are meticulously crafted of premium, forged steel with long, precision-ground, knife-edge blades that cut multiple layers of fabric easily, all the way to the tip. Their longer cut is ideal for cutting patterns, trimming seams or cutting long swaths of fabric, and a double-plated chrome-over-nickel blade finish is both striking and durable. A bent handle design helps hold fabric flat on your worksurface for smooth, comfortable, mistake-free cutting. Its gold plating adds an unmistakable touch of sophistication to the handles. These shears also include a protective nylon sheath for storage.
