At Wusthof we have been make fine cutting utensils for over 190 years. These Come Apart kitchen shears have a wide variety of uses. The Shear can cut anything from string to skin. The handle is designed to open jar lids. Because the shears come apart these shears make cleaning them a brease. This multiuse shear will find many uses in the kitchen.
These powerful 8-inch kitchen shears cut food, flowers, paper, cardboard, even carpet. They're balanced in the hand and work equally well for right-handers and left-handers. Blades formed from high-carbon stainless steel curve inward so they meet in only one place at any given position and cutting action is smooth and exact. One blade's serrations prevent slippage. A plastic cap on the screw securing the blades can be lifted so the shears can be taken apart for resharpening. Steel-tooth insets in the rugged synthetic handles twist open bottle and jar caps. The shears are dishwasher-safe, but hand washing better protects the blade edges. --Fred Brack

I use these for two main purposes: cutting poultry and cutting dog rawhides. Both are difficult to impossible with the new model. The rawhides make an easy side by side comparison. These can barely cut the thinnest ones. The old ones had no problem cutting through medium thickness ones. These are almost useless for my most common uses. They are not good for cutting through breastbone or backbone, and if I have to use a butcher's knife - what's the point of these?
Shears open and close easily for cutting. They are not at all stiff to use!
The blades are short (8 ins by 0.5 ins). This ensures good leverage for making precision cuts - whether it's deboning a chicken, cutting up veggies or even outdoors as a home gardening shears!
Blades are made with high-carbon stainless steel so they stay sharp longer.
One blade is serrated to prevent slippage during cutting and another is smooth to ensure a clean cut.
Bone notch at end of kitchen shear blade easily cuts through chicken bones
Blades meet together for smooth, precision cutting.
When opened to the fullest, the blades come apart for easy cleaning.
Rugged synthetic handles for either right or left handed users.
These shears have steel-tooth insets in the handles to twist open bottle and jar caps.
If you open the shears too far while cutting, the blades will come apart. However, to open the shears 'this far', you must be trying to cut a watermelon for the blades to come apart while in use! :)
These are precision crafted shears proudly made by Wusthof knife making company of Germany. Wusthof is family owned for 7 generations and has been in the knife making business since 1813.

Hope my review was helpful ... Jeffrey A. (Jeff)
The scissors are SHARP and cut through everything with great ease. They feel nice when slicing and I can easily use them with either hand.
If you turn them perpendicular to each other they come apart, which has been incredibly nice for washing and cleaning them! I don't have to worry about junk between the blades or them corroding where I can't dry them.
Some people voiced concern about them coming apart during use. I have not had this problem, and the only foreseeable way to do so, would be to open the scissors up 90 degrees. Unless you're trying to cut salami logs with this, I don't see that happening.
Also, to butterfly (spatchcock) for BBQ: just cut along both sides of the back-bone to remove it and then remove the keel bone. The chicken (or any bird) can be laid out flat for easy, even cooking on the grill (or for the broiler)!
I have had these for 5 years now and just never got around to reviewing them. They are still like new although they get used several times per month.
