  • Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the price I received these shears for Christmas 2014, and was very excited to use them, as they were replacing a pair of years-old Wusthof shears, just about worn out. My original impression was not-so-great, but decided to give them time. I use them every week, sometimes more than once, and have been disappointed at the decline in quality, I only use them for poultry, and occasionally other meats. Never for anything but cooking. Now, the shears tear the skin rather than cutting through, and they barely have enough zip to cut off wing tips. I thought maybe I was losing my grip, so dug out the old pair, and no, grip is just fine. I love the feel of the shears, and love the way they come apart for cleaning, and not unexpectedly. I just wish they would cut better. I can buy a new pair of Wusthof every few years for what I paid for these. Maybe I got a bad pair...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I bought it for cutting up chickens. It is well made and firm to cut up the backs. The curvy edge helps cut up bones and hard parts. It saves me lot of bandages and pain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scissors This is the backup pair to my shun edo that came with my knife set. I use these almost daily and they still look new after a year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product These shears are sharp and comfortable to hold, even for my husband who has large hands. Great for trimming up that chicken and getting it ready for the grill!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect performance The food shears are light weight for trimming chives and scallions yet sturdy enough to debone chicken and create meat strips for stir fry. Blades separate for cleaning. A bonus: comes with plastic holder that can be screwed to wall cabinet or magnetic connect to appliances. A must to have for my retirement cottage. (have had a pair for a dozen years)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from NOT A GENUINE SHUN PRODUCT These shears appear to be the Kershaw 1120M TaskMaster Kitchen Shears with Magnetic Plastic Sheath. They are fine shears but are not labeled Shun, but are Kershaw brand which I believe are made by Shun. Reviews of the Kershaw Shears can be found at the website of the largest online retailer. Several reviews by customers report disappointment when it is discovered that the shears are not Shun shears. The Williams-Sonoma price is the same price as that large retailer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shears so far Only had these shears a few weeks but so far so good and the price was right. They are replacing a pair of expensive Henckle stainless shears that I was very disappointed with...the bolt holding the two blades together sheared and cannot be repaired. I was not abusing them just cutting a chicken.
