These are great so far... Good quality,good craftmanship. Solid scissors
This shear is a great idea and has a good feel. The steel is garbage though. It is soft and will dull very quickly. Do not cut "bones and twigs" with this especially. The shear has a coarse edge and will cut soft things reasonably well. The screwdriver at the end was not ground evenly. It was oddly shaped. Using it on a semi-tight screw bent it.
Great idea but poor execution. The steel is relatively soft and will dull quickly. The blades are not strong enough to cut bones easily. You’re better off buying a pair that will stay sharp,like the Victorinox,for light cutting and a heavier pair for bones.
They’re good,but the take-apart feature is a double edged sword. While it makes them very easy to clean,they’ve also come apart more than once by accident.
