    I have some Gingher scissors and the ends of them are trying to cross over, they were fine when I got them a few months ago, but then they started to stick and now it is like the are crossing over on the tips. I bought them on ebay so I can't return them (they were in a set of five), does anyone have an answer or solution to the problem?
    Thanks

    no answer but you might look at their site online and see if you can contact them. they may replace for you.
    or just take them to a scissors man. someone who works on them and perhaps they can be adjusted.

    Sounds like they may have been dropped.

    Gingher offers a maintenance service (bottom of page).
    http://www.gingher.us/Gingher_Maintenance.html

    The $7.50 cost will bring them back to new.
    I use it all the time for sharpening and the occasional dropping.
