Fiskars Scissor Sharpener

I have tried lots of methods to sharpen scissors, most made the blades even more blunt! Tin foil and fine grade sand paper are just not worth wasting my time or stress levels on as they don't work. So I decided to give my scissor sharpening gadget a go, even though I have had it for a few months now.

Fiskars Scissors Sharpener Sew Sharp

I tried my Fiskars scissor sharpener on a very old pair of scissors, almost destined for the bin, that have seen better days and have been used to cut anything from fabric, packing tape, paper and plastic! Yes, I know, lots of naughties here, but this pair are for general family use. No-One touches my fabric and sewing scissors but ME or I WILL BITE!
hehehe..... well maybe growl!

Sharpen Scissors with Fiskars Sew Sharp

This sharpener is a definite must have in my opinion. It was awkward learning to use it by the method described as the blades kept getting stuck on the ceramic rod, however after a small amount of perseverance and a little method tweaking I found success. Rather than drawing the sharpener away from you it is easier to pull it toward you as the scissors open, giving you far more control. It also sharpens both blades with the one action. The dodgy old scissors are now just like new. I can even cut fabric with them again. Something they have not done in a long while. I can even take the lock off my sewing box now!
