Default pinking shears

Does anyone know where I can purchase a small pair, 6 to 8 inches, of pinking shears I have two pair, each about 10 to 12 inches long. Both are just too much for my athritic hands.

I would not buy pinking sheers now since there is a rotary blade available. I have one for my olfa rotary cutter and it works great. They are available at any fabric store, Michaels and Hobby Lobby.

I just got a pair of 7 inch Gingher pinking shears from Amazon. They were under $30.

ITA ... go for the rotary blade.
Much easier to operate than the pinking shears, and especially so, being that you meantioned your arthritic hands being the concern.

I have had several pair of pinking shears. The last pair I bought was Fiskars. Maybe I like them so much because they are MINE and there is no chance of anyone taking to cut paper or other stuff with. Maybe I like them because they cut nice and smooth, too. I think I got them at ACMoore with a 40% off coupon.
