    Price is right. Could pick up four or five pairs for the price of the Tojiros.

    I picked up the Tojiro shears last week. Haven't had a chance to use them yet, but they look/feel good. Thanks for the advice everyone.

    Tojiro stainless are the best in my opinion, they come apart easy as well for sanitation purposes. Quite sharp as well.

    No one mentioned the Messermeister break-apart shears. Dave just sharpened mine and they got top marks from Cook's Illustrated -- the same people that rate knives really high that we don't like. Just kidding. They do pretty good IMO.

    I like my Messermeister but you can also get lobster/crab sheers. They are cheap and (gasp) can go into the dishwasher. For $10 you can buy a set every few years and not worry about the dishwasher.

    Bumping this older thread...

    Looking to buy shears also and considering getting something cheaper and "semi disposable" or the tojiros.

    Anywhere to buy the tojiro shears besides CKTG?

    I went with the Tojiros, though I think there are some good alternatives mentioned here.

    You don't have to buy them from CKTG. I believe the two listed below are the same as those carried by CKTG.

    Harbor Fright has plastic shears with metal blade inserts, all you would need is some damascus blade inserts and you would be all set!
