  • Pinking Shears

    After many loyal years of use, my pinking shears are getting dull. They are a really good quality professional model-belonged to my bf who did costumes for pro theater. Where can I get them sharpened by someone who knows what they're doing? Anyone have theirs sharpened before?
    Old groomers never die, they just go at a slower clip.

    Groom on!!!

    Any good

    sharpener should be able to do them for you. They just have to be done a little different, but not hard to do. DH has done mine for years , now my son does them. PM and I can give you more info.

          Just to cut fabic, like bandannas and such. Not for cutting dogs. :-)

              Actually you CAN use them to cut hair on dogs. I do it all the time when I trim heads. It's a trick, not difficult at all. Takes seconds to learn.

                You've really peaked my interest. What advantage do pinking shears have and do you have any pictures?

                  I actually use mine to trim my own hair. Leaves a nice soft, layered edge

                        There's no need to make a video. It'd be the shortest one in history.

                        Doing heads on drop coats, like Yorkies or Maltese, when you don't want a top knot. Simply pull the hair on top of the head up, like you're going to put it in a top knot, and cut it straight across with the pinking shears. When you let it down, it has a nice, feathered look to it. No need to use blenders. You can also trim the beard with the pinking shears and get a softer look than if you use regular scissors.
