8" Serrated/Knife Edge Dressmaker's Shears, Blunt Tip, Chrome Finish. Gingher's 8 inch Dressmaker's Shears have blunt points to prevent snags on sheer fabrics. A serrated edge gently grips fabrics, so the knife edge can flawlessly cut through multiple layers of fabric. Quilters like the medium-sized, bent handles for working comfortably across a flat surface. The double-plated chrome finish over nickel is both handsome and durable.
