end post 25. regards

In 40 years of collecting, I have yet to see pinking-sheared linings on an original.


However, they are commonly found in Frankensteins.

the blades of which are sawtoothed instead of straight. They leave a zigzag pattern instead of a straight edge.

Pinking shears are scissors, the blades of which are sawtoothed instead of straight. They leave a zigzag pattern instead of a straight edge.

The pinking shears design was made by Sameul Briskman in 1931.[1]

Pinking shears have a utilitarian function for cutting woven cloth. Cloth edges that are unfinished will easily fray, the weave becoming undone and threads pulling out easily. The sawtooth pattern does not prevent the fraying but limits the length of the frayed thread and thus minimizes damage.[2]

These scissors can also be used for decorative cuts and a number of patterns (arches, sawtooth of different aspect ratios, or asymmetric teeth) are available. True dressmaker's pinking shears, however, should not be used for paper decoration because paper dulls the cutting edge.

congrats for your 20.000th post. saluti Sergio

20,000 posts and every one of them for the benefit of other collectors.

Actually, I'm going to start another thread about this right now.

EXACTLY!!! You would think talking about Frankys being made with pinking shears would be something everybody would know by now, but apparently not.

NTZ will be delighted your 20,000 post was on the subject of pinking shears!

His firm milled the teeth into the blades. Wiss made the actual shears and had the exclusive sales in the USA and through their agents abroad. Briskman was also entitled to sell abroad under the name of Pinking Shears Corp. through his agents
