    Kitchen Shears Recommendation

    Any strong feelings about the "best" stainless steel kitchen shears on the market? I would like a sturdy/handsome pair that comes apart easily for sharpening, and am not worried about cost.

    Tojiro? Wusthof?

    Thanks!

    -Johnny

    I keep losing the link, but Dave recommends Shuns IIRC. Maybe we can talk him into ordering a few and sending them out to us sharpened...

    I just read up on the Shun shears on Amazon; pretty enthusiastic/favorable reviews. I sort of like the "all stainless" appearance of the Tojiro/Wusthof options, but I suppose it shouldn't be a beauty contest (especially since they will live in a drawer and not on a Mag-Blok for all the world to see).

    Not Shun...KAI.....but not for kitchen shears necessarily though, they don't seem to offer break apart all steel options. They make some great shears for the money for almost all other applications.

    Bookmarked the KAI site, thanks Dave. I suppose I could use a regular pair of scissors too! Still torn between the Tojiro and Wusthof's however...

    That's two votes for Tojiro; one more and I'm sold! Just thought the fit/finish and/or durability of the Wusthof's might be better (based on...nothing really).

    Maybe a group buy with rehandling by Dave?
