Perfect set of poultry shears!
This is exactly what I would expect from a set of poultry shears. They cut smoothly, grip well, and feel sturdy. I process a lot of chicken, and these are perfect for butterflying birds.
The edge retention on these shears is good, but when used for their intended purpose, they need to be honed regularly for maintenance. Chicken bones and rib cages are hard on even the best quality steel.

This wasn\'t breaking life back when I learn how to cut meat when I was 15. I bought it because I have a ww2 vet who works in my department. I call him Captain America and he used one back in the day, and was talking about it, so I bought it for the both of us. It\'s razor sharp and way better than the ones we used to use light tuffer and scares the next generation. They have all bought fdick knives because they learned a lot from my experience.
Got it for a new meat cutter. Takes a beating and then learn how to use a knife
Best hands down on the planet. My company does not have a supply company yet who can even sell a 12 in. steel but I went to a vocational school with 14 in. steels, I guess we call it now old school. I\'m fixing to be a trainer for this company for new meat cutters and anyone who ever really knows what they\'re doing the key for a sharp knife is learning how to use the steel and this far beyond exceeds any expectations I have. Might be called old from the generation but I\'m teaching and I know the best equipment - this is one. Retire staff Sargent USMC Ferguson
Arrived quick, very well made and very sharp. This thing is a beast!
This is an interesting steel, quite different than a typical honing rod. It mildly abrasive coating, such that in addition to straightening your edge, it also removes a bit of material. In a way, it is a hybrid, somewhere in between a coarse honing steel and a ceramic rod.
In practice, it produces an edge with coarse micro-serations. In most situations, this isn\'t ideal since it results in the edge not lasting as long. I suggest following up with a fine cut steel to smooth it.
Overall length: 17 1/4\"
Honing surface length: 11 5/8\"
Honing surface texture: Coarse
Made in Germany
+Rough surface is ideal for situations where you want micro-serations on your edge.
+The longer honing surface length makes it ideal for knives up to 10\".
+Durable hardened steel. No signs of wear so far.
Fit and Finish: 5/5
+No dents or scratches in the honing surface.
+No chips or scratches on the handle.
A simple and effective peeler. The peels it carves are very thin, which reduces the amount of food wasted. I also like that the side of the blade can be used as a carrot scraper, and the tip of the peeler can be used to dig out black spots in produce.
