These are good quality reliable kitchen shears at a fair price. I've had a pair for years and use them for a wide range of kitchen tasks. I like them well enough that I recently got a new pair for my son.

They are well made. The blades keep an edge and sharpen up well. The two halves come apart for easy cleaning and sharpening - I wouldn't buy a pair of kitchen shears that didn't have this essential feature.

I cook quit a lot of whole fish & my usual kitchen scissors really struggle with the fins. These scissors are coping very well so far. One of its benefits - can be taken apart for easy cleanig - is also a minor downside, as they can come apart accidentally a little too easily while washing & if you are not aware, you could possibly cut yourself. Overall though, very happy.
Update Nov 2013 - these are now redundant as the blades no longer sit tight together. The previously mentioned benefit of coming apart for easy cleaning, has become an even greater downside, as the mechanism/pivot has become gradually looser over time, making the cutting of anything fine impossible. Am forced to buy another pair of scissors now, which I wasn't expecting after paying for a well respected branded product - can now only give it 3 stars.

Just ordered my second pair of these which i have had for a while and i would highly recommend them as tough and sturdy and taking them apart to put in the dishwasher is brilliant. Best kitchen scissors i have ever found!

I would not say these scissors are the sharpest in the world but they seem to be fairly well made. Crucially the blades separate for cleaning. If you open the scissors fully the blades simply come apart using a sort of cam arrangement with a magnet to help keep them together. I have only had them a short while so I cannot comment on their durability.

I made the right decision to buy these kitchen scissors. Brilliantly come apart for cleaning, very easy to put back together. Easy to sharpen. Would recommend purchase, as they are very good value for the money.

I love these scissors , pricey but worth the money and well made. I ordered them as I had been looking for a pair that could be separated for cleaning, my previous pair of kitchen scissors that were similar looking but did not come apart, used to harbour food and were not hygeinic. Super sharp too , I would say that I use them nearly every day and cut up lots of things I previously use to use a knife for too.

Not a lot to say - the scissors easily come apart for washing, and they are very good at cutting all sorts of material. There is no mention on the packaging of washing in the dishwasher - but ours appear to have suffered no ill-effects.

Recommended.

I have had these scissors for three months. The scissors are great, they are sharp, sturdy and really easy to clean as they come apart. However, I have spotted some rust on one of the blades, on the inside and around the part where it comes apart. They are supposed to be stainless and they weren't cheap either! Very disappointing.
