This summer I bought the Oxo poultry shears. I've nothing to compare them to, since they are my first pair, but I like them. They come apart so that they can be thoroughly cleaned. I bought them at Williams-Sonoma, but I'm sure that you can find them elsewhere (I live in the middle of nowhere, so when I get to a WS store, I just get giddy and go crazy). I want to say that they were about $30, so they weren't ridiculous.

I personally like  the Chicago Cutlery.  Not that they are any better that others or feel better in my old hands but they come apart for cleaning.

I have Chicago Cutlery shears and have for 18 years. They come apart for cleaning. Big thumbs up.

I have the Messermiester and like them a lot. They do come apart for cleaning. Another alternative may be trauma shears. I've used these for many years in the ER and they will cut through anything. They have the advantage that one of the blades is serrated. Cuts down on the slipping.

I used to be an ED nurse-I too keep trauma scissors in my kitchen. (Clean ones.)

Those trauma shears look great. I've bought many pairs of expensive kitchen scissors and they all seem to disappear. I just may get a pair of these for everyone's stocking this year! Thanks!

We used them to cut off people's clothes when they'd been injured. They cut through shoe leather, blue jeans, coats, etc. They really will cut through anything! They are quite handy to have around the house.

I can't wait to put trauma shears on the Christmas List my Mom asked for. 


Edit:   I am so bad, just bought the Messermiester AND the trauma shears, 2 pairs so I can send one to Mom for her Christmas. LOL p.S.  These are less than $5.00!


But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!
