Product Description

Product Description

TaskMaster Shears are multipurpose tools. In addition to handling a wide variety of cutting tasks, they include a nutcracker, jar opener, bone notch, lid lifter and screwdriver tips. For easy cleaning, the blades fully separate.

Amazon.com

Made from high-carbon, cutlery-grade stainless steel, these well-made shears are great for a variety of uses--from cutting pizza to cleaning just-caught fish. They combine a straight edge with a serrated edge for maximum versatility. Plus, this handy kitchen tool’s bonus features are numerous. A lid lifter pries under rolled metal lids to raise them quickly and easily, while its unique handle design helps grip the lids of tough-to-open jars. Other highlights include a bottle opener, nutcracker, and bone notch for grabbing game or poultry bones. Blades un-hinge for easy clean-up, and are safe to clean in the dishwasher. Ideal for trimming meat, snipping herbs, or cutting flowers, these shears are as useful for the hunter, fisherman, or outdoors lover as they are for the home cook. --Mary Park

Finally, a set of shears that survives in my kitchen. No cracked, cheap plastic handles. No inseparable blades that prevent washing.

Overall, a good set of shears. Perhaps a bit too much going on with them, but they do what I need them to do and they do it well.

Follow up:

It's now January 2012, and I still have the shears. The handles have held up to heavy use and the dishwasher with no damage. The blades are still sharp. They're good shears, with some slight ergonomic issues, but overall a good buy.

September 2013. Still using the shears. Handles are still perfect - no cracks or signs of damage. Blades are still sharp.

This is my third pair of kitchen shears. The first was $10 and lasted a week. I thought the second pair was just fine until my Shun shears arrived. These cut well and are also very smooth while cutting. They fit my hand nicely. I can really feel the difference in quality. These can perform different functions -- opening bottles, jar opener, nut cracker -- one blade has a curve in it to accomodate bone. I love that they are dishwasher safe.

I probably wouldn't have purchashed these if I were not completing a Shun set. But now that I have them, this is what I should have been using all along.

We've tried a couple shears over the years and this one model stands out because of

(1) its bone notch,

(2) its solid feel, and

(3) its ability to be taken apart for cleaning.

The last two are apparently mutually exclusive for some brands... Fortunately, the hinge is very sturdy on this one after you put the shears together.

Try to cut a chicken and you will know the difference.

P.S. Shun and Kershaw brands are both owned by Kai.

We bought these shears a little while ago, and they have been nothing but great. They fit wonderfully in both mine and my boyfriend's hands, which is great because I have much smaller hands than he does. Plus, I'm left-handed and do not have a problem using these shears either right or left-handed. We love that they come apart, so they can be cleaned properly after cutting raw meat. And they seem to cut through anything without a problem at all. We've used them to cut through packaging, pizza, hotdogs, pepperoni, beef, chicken, and even a kudzu bush so we could save a feral dog who got tangled in it! They're dead useful and much nicer than any knock-off comparison that you'd find at Target, Walmart, or Linens N' Things!

I love Shun and I love these kitchen shears. The whole thing is very heavy duty and feels of quality and durability. If you open it up all the way, it unhinges very easily for ease of cleaning. When you put it back together, it's solid again. It's very easy to do and does not sacrifice sturdiness. These are all purpose kitchen shears and I can't think of any improvements. The handle is made of some heavy duty plastic that's lines for non-slip. It's very rugged and utilitarian, but I'm not that hot about plastic. Luckily, it looks good and the quality and feel still can't be beat.

I bought these shears to go with my Shun knives. The other reviewers are correct when they say these are actually Kershaw shears. Kershaw is part of Kai, USA, as is Shun. At any rate these are great shears, made in Japan, wonderfully sharp out of the package, very ergonomic and have all the bells and whistles one would expect from a great pair of shears. I like them more than my messermeister's, they are larger and have more mechanical advantage when cutting bone. Cutting fins off of fish has just gotten a lot easier and butterflying a chicken is a snap. Highly recommend these shears.

These shears just feel nice in your hand when you open and close them. You can snip herbs as easily as you will whole chickens or plastic food packaging. The best part is how easy they come apart (when you want them to) for cleaning and then go back together quickly with no screws or pieces to misplace. These are the shears that Alton Brown singled out in one his Good Eats episodes. My original pair came from Williams & Sonoma (12/06) and included a plastic sheath with a magnet for $39.95. The second pair I purchased through Amazon for a gift came without the sheath but since I have had no use for mine I think the trade-off in regards to price was well worth it.

I am an average-sized male (5'10") and the handles are very uncomfortable - they are too small and poorly configured. Yes, I realize that they want this usable by both right- and left-handed people, but I have used other ambidextrous scissors that are much better.

Details: I can fit only two fingers comfortably inside the handles. If I use my index and middle fingers, the extremely poor fit of the other handle to the thumb is not just uncomfortable, but severely limits how far I can open the blades and how much cutting force I can generate with a natural motion.

What I have settled on is having the middle and ring fingers inside the handle. It seems _very_ strange having the index finger in front of the handle, but it allows adequate motion of the blades and allows me to generate enough force to cut medium chicken bones.

With this grip, my little finger does not quite fit inside the handle, but having it outside puts too much space between it and the ring finger and thus feels "unnatural". However, this doesn't impede the use of the scissors.

I find myself using a knife when scissors were probably the better choice. But for opening jars/bottles, I do find myself using them in preference to my other tools.
