Use & Care


  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.


  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
  • Maintain the knife's cutting edge by regularly using a honing steel.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shears fall apart too easily I almost never write reviews but I feel strongly about this product. As others have mentioned, the shears fell apart as soon as I took them out of the package. They will not stay together. The quality is horrendous - this product is not even worth the sale price because it's basically unusable. It's not eligible to be returned, either. I feel a little scammed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had this for over 9 yrs with no issues. Had this for over 9 yrs with no issues. I just bought another pair on sale and decided to check out the reviews. The scissors come apart for easy cleaning and can be washed in dishwasher. I have no issues so far with the new pair coming apart in use. These scissors save my old arthritic hands so I cut more and chop less.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THESE PULL-APART KITCHEN SHEARS!!! I LOVE these Wusthof Pull-Apart Kitchen Shears!!! I have owned these shears for over 10 years and use them daily. I am unsure why so many reviewers are complaining that these shears fall apart. These kitchen shears are meant to PULL-APART. That is why they are so wonderful - they are easy to clean, keep sanitary and completely dry. They work very easily. For the reviewers having trouble, it is best to NOT open the shears too widely, or they will fall apart. I purchased a back-up pair of these shears; just in case Wusthof discontinues making them. Overall, these are the best, and most durable, PULL-APART Kitchen Shears for the price! Buy a pair - You will be Glad You Did!!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wusthof Kitchen Shears I trusted the name but was disappointed with the kitchen shears I'd received. It was not screwed in correctly/tightly and it fell apart. Even after putting the screw on tightly, I can't use the shears as the screw came loose and the shears fell apart. Very frustrating to order a "great" product and can't use it. I would like to have a replacement at this point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite scissors! My experience with the scissors is completely different from some of the other reviewers which prompts me to write this review. I have had this set for 2-3 years. I use the scissors several times every day. I really like the feature of coming part for cleaning. I think they have fallen apart on their own only one or two times and they were probably not connected properly. I have another pair of kitchen scissors, but I only use them if the Wusthof are not available. I don't use the knife as much as my husband does. I have several Victornox knives from WS which are my favorite paring knives. In fact, I could use another pair of scissors just like these. I find they are useful and handy for so many things.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shears fall apart The paring knife is good, but the shears fell apart after one use. VERY poorly made. Like the other reviewers, I don't want to pay the $$ to return the shears, so will just deal with them.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the best cooking shears The paring knife is good. I use it often. However the cooking shears are defective. I opened the shears wide to wash them before use and they fell apart. I just did not have the energy to return them since they weren't too expensive. I found another use for them in the kitchen.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing The kitchen shears would be nice, but they constantly fall apart as the mechanism to separate the two sides is not well designed. The edges of the blunt side of the blade on the paring knife are so sharp I end up with cuts on my finger each time I use it. Good price, but unfortunately not even worth that.
