size of pinking shears? Answered

Is there a size preference for the size of the edges for a pinking shear? I came across scissors offered in 3, 5 or 7 mm sizes for the cutting. Is it better to have small zig-zags?

There is no hard and fast rule here. You'd usually want a larger one for more heavy duty fabrics and a smaller one for more lightweight fabrics, or just for your personal preference if you were using them decoratively. I'd probably go for the middle size, 5mm for a good general use pinking shear that will work on a lot of fabrics.
