You're both correct: I need to sort out a notch I managed to create when cutting into a hidden pin.
My very old wilkinson sword dressmakers' scissors are okay for cutting paper,and manila board. I need to have a look at Hutch's sharpening post for those, I wouldn't sharpen my Wiss myself. I'm now on the path to collect antique things. I really want an old chalk sharpener box, missed one on eBay a while back so I have decided to make my own.
Forgot to take a picture of all my scissors, top to bottom:Cheap thread cutters

, need reconditioning. Picked them up off eBay cheaply, just for fun really but if I can get them to work nicely I will use them.Wilkinson Sword Dressmakers' scissors
These also were my dear old Mum's which over the years seem to have lost their edge so I have used them for paper since I started this new journey into sartorial pastimes.Solingen Shears
which I need to sort out, they're cheap so I will do the repair myself.And my new antique Wiss no.6 shears
which are absolutely fine. I have taken them apart and cleaned and re-greased and reset, not used them on good cloth yet.
