    Hi,
    Does anyone know of a way to sharpen Fiskars spring-loaded rag scissors?

    I love the scissors, but I'm on my 3rd denim frayed rag quilt and they're starting to dull. I have a Fiskar's scissor sharpener, which works wonders on regular scissors, but the blades on the rag have many fine rigs on them.

    I would look under your yellow pages for blade sharpening. Probably not something that is requested often, but someone may be able to sharpen them.

    Go to the Fiskars website and ask them. They might have some information about sharpening those scissors.
