Chicago Cutlery's Shears have a modern style to fit in any kitchen. High-carbon stainless steel blades resist rust, stains, and pitting, while the bolster provides balance for better control. The comfortable, contemporary design polymer handles make cutting and meal prep easy, and work for both left- and right-handed users. A full metal tang extends from tip of the blades to end of the handle, providing added strength, balance, and confidence for precise cutting. Chicago Cutlery's Shears come with a full lifetime warranty. Hand washing is recommended.
