These Henckels Kitchen Shears, forged from Henckels’ usual Solingen stainless steel, feature short high leverage blades and composite polymer handles. Lightweight but strong, the handles are unbreakable. Steel inserts allow them to be used for loosening jar lids.
Under the decorative red cap that joins the jaws is a screw fitting which allows users to take the shears apart for cleaning. Unlike slip joint shears that rotate on fixed rivets, these shears can be tightened with that same screw if the action becomes loose.
Microserrations on the upper jaw helps grip slippery foods during cutting. With proper care and use, sharpening should rarely be needed; when it is necessary, the lower jaw–which has a plain edge–can be sharpened at home.
These scissors should not be used to cut metal–not even copper wire, which might be very tempting considering that the high leverage build of these shears makes them look like they’d do that well. Should you have any doubts about the composite construction, Henckels applies the same lifetime warranty to these shears that it gives to its other fine products.
Wash and dry by hand–modern stainless steel often does not do well in a dishwasher’s high heat and harsh detergents.
