Default Did Gingher stop making scissors?

My daughter bought me lovely "designer series" ones for Christmas, I was looking to buy some for my sister and nobody seems to have them. I'm seeing them for un-real prices on ebay and Amazon (like $100 for 4" ones.

Anyone have another idea where to find them? Joann's is no.

Our J's doesn't have them hanging "out" anymore. You have to take the card up to the front and they will get them for you. For a while, I thought they didn't have any. Till I realized they treated them this way.

The last two pair I purchased were nowhere near the former quality. I switched to Dovos.

Don't you just hate it when that happens. Why do they have to take something thats perfect and change it? Guess I better go buy another pair before the good ones are gone.!

I discovered the scarcity of the decorative Gingher scissors about a year and a half ago. I wanted to give a pair to my grandson's wife and all I could find were one's with gold handles, no florals. Now I know why.

When I first bought the Gingher scissors they were great. They were made in Germany and were really sharp. (I'm talking at least 30 years ago.) A friend had a pair, but she said she didn't like to cut with them, it was too hard to squeeze them. I took a look and sure enough they were much harder to cut with than mine. Then I looked to make sure they were Ginghers and there, under Gingher it said Taiwan. Guess that explains it!
