Sullivan's-Pinking Shears. Pinking shears feature notched, sawtooth blades that leave a zig-zag pattern along your fabric edge. This limits the length of frayed threads to help prevent unraveling. These 9.5 inch Pinking Shears have stainless steel blades and an ergonomic handle. They can also be used with ribbon, paper and other materials to add decorative edging. Imported.
