These scissors are not as well made as they used to be
on September 8, 2012
I've been using Joyce Chen kitchen scissors for 25 years and have always loved them for cutting herbs, trussing chickens, and other prep work. When I went to purchase my third pair I expected the new ones to have the same sturdy construction as my previous pairs. While the new pair initially cut really well, I was disappointed to discover that the screw that holds the two scissor blades together is no longer made of stainless steel. Consequently, it rusted after the first time I washed the scissors (by hand). A few months out my scissors are covered with rust stains and the blades no longer have the tight fit required for a precision cut. This is not the way $26 scissors should perform.
