Sheffield scissors

Recommended Posts

Slightly off topic, I have a pair of Wilkinson Senior Pinking Scissors that need a bit of sharpening, is there anywhere i can take the blades or scissors to, to get this done? thanks.

 

guess most shoemaker key shops could do that it only takes a minute

Hmm. I wouldn't take my pinking shears to a shoemaker/key shop but seek out a specialist – I know that doesn't really help you, Itrytoplease, as I have no recommendations. I've had my pinking shears for 25 years and they're still sharp, fortunately.

 

Try the little mester at Kelham Island Museum....though it is closed Fridays and Saturdays

 

Worth asking. Or in a fabric shop if you've not tried that already.

The Sheffield shop on Ecclesall Road does a nice job with our kitchen knives.

I was thinking the same, these are 60 years old and a quid for each year wouldn't cover the cost of replacement.

This sounds good, haven't been there for a while, might give him a go.

You could try cutting through tin foil or sand paper that’s a trick to sharpen standard scissors, I’ve tried it with my old pinking shears too

Um, These are, I think carbon blades screwed to a S/Steel body, not sure i'd want to risk it, but I've heard something like it before.

No it hasn't, someone has bought the company

I thought someone had bought the company?

 

 

 

 

Wazzock and Haddy, thanks for correcting my "fake news". Great news that they made the cut.
