I bought these to prepare spatchcock Chicken and, wow, the difference between using these and struggling with a knife or dull kitchen shears is amazing. They sliced right through the chicken bones with no trouble at all.

They are also very well designed--they clip keeps them securely closed while they are in the drawer and the spring is completely encased in the metal so you won't pinch your fingers or get food particles in it.

After having too many pairs of cheap poultry shears break, it was time to get a professional product, and this is definitely a good investment.

My first task was splitting a whole chicken ready for the Weber, a task that was done with ease with this tool. These shears are comfortable on the hands and they cut extremely well. After use, I just popped them into the dishwasher.

Highly recommended, this quality product should give a lifetime's use.

We bought these shears to cut raw chicken, hoping to make short work of transforming a large package of whole wings into drumettes and flats. The plus - construction and material are excellent. Have had zero issues with the spring detaching. There is a good sized notch at the back where your leverage is greatest. The minus - these shears are a handful. I have large hands and releasing the grip sufficiently to fit a bone into the notch means I am at the limits of grip. With a pinkie to thumb span of 9 3/4", it's difficult to manage. I don't think someone with small hands would like these shears much.

Out of the box performance was good but not great. I had to tighten the blades on the first use because they would only cut raw skin at the tip of the blade, not in the middle and certainly not near the root. After adjustment, they worked wonderfully.

These shears are the real deal. High quality stainless steel all over, good solid construction, and a well tensioned spring provide a professional cutting experience. Cuts clean through small rib bones and chicken bones with a fair amount of ease.

I bought it after straining mightily to cut through roast chickens from Costco with a pair of shears that look nice but can't cut through the backs and breast bones of a roast chicken. The Messermeister 10" shears have blades long enough to do the job and the handles have enough length to get decent leverage so I'm happy with it.

I was excited to have some "quality" poultry shears after years of preparing raw food for my cats with "cheapo" ones. When the metal spring thing flew off immediately and I had to paw around on the floor for it, I knew these were junk. The spring thing is not secured on in any meaningful way, and if you attempt to open these far enough to use the bone-cutting notch, it will fly off. Also, there is little texture on the handles, so they quickly become slick with gore. These can't handle shin or tendons well, they just slide between the blades sideways and you have to tear them with brute force, as they won't be cut. Don't expect to be able to cut bone, tendons, or skin easily. It can sort of cut between bones, but so can anything. Likewise, it can cut skinless, boneless chicken breasts okay, but then, so can grandma's butter knife. Very disappointed. I was hoping these would make things easier, but they performed even worse than $25 sheers...and that's brand-new. I shudder to think how poorly they would cut after they get dull. In all honesty, the flying spring thing alone is a deal-breaker, its numerous other traits just drive the point home. You don't want these.

These are excellent shears, but not for small hands. I found it difficult to quarter a chicken as once the grips got moist they were too slippery for me to use. As a result it took me much longer to do this simple task as I had to use paper towels to try to keep the grips dry. The shears kept falling out of my hands even so. Another reviewer wrote that the pinkie to thumb span of the grip is 9-3/4”. Unfortunately that review was not available when I purchased these shears, or I probably would not have ordered them. As it is, I will have to buy a different pair. I also had problems with the spring detaching, but this was not as significant as the large grip issue.
