Taking care of your scissors
There are some fabric scissors that have a general-purpose but more commonly, there are traditional tailor scissors. You should make sure your scissors are going to give you a clean cut. Scissors come in all different sizes too. You should be sure the scissors you use are comfortable on your hand.
Many fabric scissors are bent or angled to provide a comfortable fit. You will also find many that are lightweight, as to not hurt your hand while cutting through fabric.
By keeping your fabric scissors clean and oiled, you will prolong the life of them. Scissors work by grinding two pieces of steel together under pressure. If kept oiled and clean it will keep the fibers off the scissors and they will last much longer.
Quality is important
Buying quality scissors will save you money in the long run. A good quality pair will stay sharpened due to the high-grade steel that is used. If you notice you’re getting dull blades, you’ll want to have your scissors sharpened.
