I do not know if this is the right place. how do you sharpen your duckbill scissors?

If you have Gingher duckbill scissors, you can send them to them for sharpening. They do not sharpen other brands, however.

Thank you I do.

It is not worth the trouble. between shipping and labor is more than a new pair of scissors

I have a Hubby that can do this for me. He keeps the knives and my scissors sharp

I was told by the last sharpening person that he could not do embroidery (curved) scissors but have not asked about duckbills. I think sharpening is a dying art. Hugs. Nan

I take all my important scissors to (my fabric store) Spotlight they have a fellow that comes in once a month to sharpen any that are left for him.

I have ordered a thingy from Echidna here in Australia for sharpening your scissors. I don't know about the duck bill ones though. I will practice on some old scissors first. Order should arrive in the next few days. Hugs

I hope your sharpener works better than mine did....

My dealer (Pre-Covid) had a fellow come out and we customers, made an appointment to bring in our scissors to have sharpened. I don't know what I'll do for awhile now. I do have a "whit" stone, so I may have a go at it myself?

Hope you get a better answer than mine, Mary - but, I usually cut into aluminum fold over and over. It helps - not sure if it is the best way thought! Stay safe! Laura

That makes sense.

I did that but it did not work.

I wonder if this would help pinking shears. At this point, nothing could hurt......
