Update on slide cutting:
Picture shows shears slide cutting fabric.
We have a customer that wanted to try a scissors with corrugations, small teeth on one blade. They called us to say that it was not working after getting this scissors.
We found out that they slide cut their fabric. Corrugations are put on a scissors to help keep the material from sliding out the blade while it is being cut. These teeth prevent the scissors from cutting the fabric during slide cutting.
Smooth slide cutting works best when both blades are honed.
