Up for sale is a vintage pair of J. Wiss & Sons 9-1/4 inch pinking shears, Model C. These iconic sewing scissors feature the classic sawtooth blades that create a zigzag pattern to prevent fraying on fabric edges.


The shears are made of high-quality steel and have been hot drop-forged for superior strength and durability. The blades are nickel-plated and the handles are black. A special ball bearing pivot reduces friction, making cutting easier and extending the life of the shears.


Approx. Dimensions: 9-1/4" L x 3" W x 3/4" D (including nut)

Approx. Weight: 7.8 ozs


Sold as is. No warranty from seller. No Returns.

This scissor does not have any deep scratches (just some light surface scratches from use), chipped paint or repairs that I can see (see pictures).
