    Found these at a swap meet. Have been trying to determine the age and actual manufacturer of these pinking shears. They are 9.25" long, razor sharp and are all stainless steel. Craftsman Logo is marked: "Pat. Pend." Tried to research by calling what is left of "Sears" and was informed that they had dissolved their "Archives Dept." so no help there.
    Thank you in advance for any and all assistance.

      Craftsman started making pinking shears around 1930. However this pair is not that old. This pair has black handle grips which makes them a newer item. If you simply google them you will find them all over the Internet. They are very common.

      I realize that pinking shears/Craftsman have been around since the 30's and I have seen shears just like these all over the internet. Unfortunately, I still have been unable to determine an accurate age and who actually manufactured them for Craftsman. I will keep hoping that someone will provide me a clue or two!
