From harvesting thyme or parsley from your windowsill garden to cutting up dried fruits and mincing scallions, these Wusthof 8-in. Red Come-Apart Kitchen Shears are a kitchen must-have you can't pass up. We love the design of these shears because it allows you to take them apart quickly and easily for more efficient cleaning and faster sharpening and maintenance. Their unique easy-grip design makes them comfortable to use, even for tedious jobs like cutting day-old bread into cubes to make croutons, or shredding fresh greens for a summer salad.

They're also sharp enough for even the most delicate kitchen cutting jobs, such as cutting parchment paper to line a cookie sheet. For added usability, when the handles are closed, they form a unique bottle opener to give you a helping hand opening sauces and other bottles.

  • Come-Apart Shears

    These shears are handy in the kitchen. They can be used to cut-up chicken, effortlessly cut tops off pastic bags and to cut-up veggies. Their lightweight design make them easy to handle and clean-up is a cinch as well as sharpening, because of the come-apart technology. If you are looking for a good quality pair of shears at a reasonable price, look no further. I was so impressed with the pair I've used for over a year that I bought everyone on my Christmas gift list a pair this year including buying myself another pair to use in the garden. The are an excellent buy for the money!

    I recommend this product.

  • Those red handled scissors

    I found one on an asphalt residential street eight years ago. Couldn't believe it: red plastic handle. Blade impressed into plastic handle. Yet it cut anything and didn't rust. Three weeks ago the handle up and cracked off. No warning. Made in China. So I looked up red handled kitchen scissors not made in China. I found this German made brand. These look almost like the previous thing, but I bet it is quality plus and will outlast me. I'd bet the bank on it.

    I recommend this product.

  • I like that the shears can be taken apart for cleaning but do not fall apart in the drawer. Good design.

  • Great kitchen shears!

    I've had a pair of these for years and they get used at least once everyday, they have stayed sharp and tight. So easy to clean and as long as you dry before putting together have not rusted. I give them as gifts and my friends love them as much as I do. You can't beat Wusthof's quality.

    I recommend this product.
