Stitching Blogger's Question: Embroidery Scissors

SBQ LogoMany of us have a few pairs of embroidery scissors and some even have a “collection”. How many pairs of scissors do you have? Feel free to share a photo of your favorite pair or pairs with us!
I only have one pair of scissors. Here's a pic of it. It's made by Consorzio Premax of Italy. I've been assured that it's good quality scissors and I love the shape and feel of it but barely a couple of months since I bought it, its handles started rusting. I think you can sort of see it in the pic. Embroidery scissors aren't supposed to do this, right? Very disappointed. I've complaint to the shop where I bought it from but since the company isn't responding to any of their emails, I don't think there's much I can do about it. Well, I'm thinking of getting myself a pair of Stork scissors soon. Hopefully this time I'll get my money's worth.

Ron, rub Singer machine oil or even baby oil onto the blades and hinges .. then leave for a few minutes and gently rub off the excess oil. That's how I was taught to keep the rust off my hardanger scissors.

I have a pair of Gingher stork scissors and I love them. I've had them for 15+ years and they still work as great now as they did when I first bought them. :) No rusting either!

Sorry to hear about your new scissors... I think its better to get a pair of gold plated ones rather than silver ones as I don't really think the later could stand hot and humid weather...

Why not try 'p's idea?

That's awful about your scissors. I have Gingher scissors and swear by the quality.
