The Gingher 8 inch Knife Edge Rug Shears -
Gingher's 8 inch Knife Edge Rug Shears are serious work shears for cutting carpets and rugs. The bent shank design and elongated handles make cutting carpeting and rugs on the floor a natural motion. This is the right tool for the job if you need to cut carpeting.
A “Knife-Edge” means that the cutting blade (the finger blade) is sharpened at 45 degrees while the thumb blade is sharpened at 15 degrees. This allows the thumb blade to hold the material in place while the incredibly sharp finger blade cuts through the material effortlessly.
Use a G-S sharpening stone for blade maintenance.
