What is a serrated edge scissor?

German Steel scissors like the Witte Roseline typically have a flatter edge (called a bevel or sword edge), with one or both blade edges serrated. Those serrations ‘hold’ the hair, keeping it from being pushed forward or sliding, giving better feedback or ‘feel’ for the user, and are more forgiving when learning to groom.

Serrated edge scissors are ideal for initial block cut-downs, when you cannot avoid cutting a dirty coat, for feet, eye detail, eyebrows and inside rear legs, and for soft, fine coats. A favourite with beginners, students in training, home users and for professionals wanting workhorse scissors, or when you have to cut a dirty coat (as they dull less easily). Serrated, bevel edge scissors are often recommended for home users also.
