Krafty Cuts / Triumph General Use Pinking Shears 235mm
These general use pinking shears have a zig-zagged cutting edge. Pinking can be used as a substitution for overlocking or hemming fabric. It is designed to lessen fraying and keep seams looking tidy, though for many fabrics fraying is unavoidable using this finishing method alone.
Pinking shears perform best on medium weight fabrics such as homespun, calico, patchwork fabrics ,cottons, wools, felts, etc. They are not recommended for heavy fabrics, knitted, tricots, thin or silky fabrics.
For best results, lay the fabric flat on a table when cutting. The performance is reduced if the fabrics are held in hand. Place the fabric into the pinker up to the second last notch from the handle. Do not jam the fabric all the way into the wide open pinker.
