Q & As

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Cut easily and cleanly. The soft grip on the shears makes cutting out so easy. Should have bought some years ago. 20 October 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointing The John Lewis straight dressmaking shears are brilliant so I went for the own-brand pinking shears. They're not a patch on the 'made in Sheffield' straight shears so I returned them and bought Fiskars instead - much better. 11 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really useful product Great shears. Gives the desired effect neatens edges well. 28 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by wouldn't even give 1 star I bought these on Sunday to cut cotton fabric for bunting. They are completely blunt so I will have to take them back. I am very disappointed 16 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excelllent product bought as a small present for our daughter to help with her dressmaking and it has proved to be a hit!! 11 September 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Skip these and get Fiskars... Bought a pair of these John Lewis pinking scissors some time in Aug--Oct 2013. They were terrible from the onset. They chewed the fabric and left uncut and fraying bits. I got an exchange which worked well for two sewing sessions but then also started chewing fabric (thin 100% cotton and denim) . I sew once every 2 to months so couldn't put the issues to normal wear and tear or misuse. I returned the second pair and got store vouchers (hence the one star here for customer service. I didn't have my receipt with me and returned the scissors 6 months after initial purchase. FYI, they do come with a 3-year Guarantee anyway. I've since bought a pair of Fiskars pinking scissors which work very well (so far). In fairness I need to review the Fiskars after a few projects so will be back here with an update. I found John Lewis's own brand soft grip pinking scissors not fit for purpose but when I mentioned this to the customer services lady she said it was the first time she's had to give a refund for them. Given the other customer reviews here, I'd say this is not an isolated problem. John Lewis needs to look into this product or just stop selling it! Save yourself the trouble and go for Fiskars or another good brand instead! 26 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Useless product. These pinking shears were so blunt they couldn't even cut through a single layer of thin cotton fabric. If you are after a chewed mess, buy these. Personally, I will be returning. 26 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing Used these twice since purchase. Second time they appear to be blunt & shred cotton fabric! Very disappointed. Hope to return item. 06 December 2013
