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

They are super sharp and strong! I love that they come apart for easy cleaning in the dishwasher.
More importantly the rubber hasn't yet begun to disintegrate years later unlike another pair we once had... I can't stand the sticky feeling plastic gets when it gets old!
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)
There are so many uses for them in the kitchen it makes the $20 a total bargain.
The only complain, and the reason why this is a 4 star instead of 5 is that Wusthof failed in the ergonomics side in the design. most people I know, including myself is used to having 3 fingers on one side (index, middle, ring) and the thumb on the other side to operate. however, the two loops in the handles are not big enough for 3 fingers and I have small fingers too!
These scissors snip through chicken bones as easily as they do parsley. The joint is well-made: the scissors do not separate during normal cutting motions, but it is not difficult to separate them for a thorough cleaning (which we do by hand, though they are technically dishwasher safe). The steel is high-quality German steel, as I believe other reviewers have mentioned.
We are both right-handed, but due to the construction of the handles, this pair of kitchen shears is equally suitable for southpaws. We do not use the bottle opener, but it is a nice touch and certainly does no harm -- it's never snagged on our clothes, nor has it rusted or discolored.
