Anyone know how to do this please?

Good question. Isn't there some special stuff you can cut with them which sharpens them?

Get new ones?

Tighten the screw?

I've heard that you can fold a piece of fine 320 sandpaper in half, sand outwards, and cut acros it several times. If that doesn't work, send them away to be sharpened.

Might try the sandpaper- I bought new ones as old ones were blunt, but still have them. Will report how I get on!

Fold tin foil and snip into it? Could try it hmm

Tried the sandpaper on old pinking shears but didn’t seem to make a difference. Just thought I’d report!
