Acceptable poultry shears, could be better
These shears are good for speeding up the processing of poultry. They are not a replacement for your knife and cleaver. And while they are solid and easy to clean, these shears could have been designed better. They are usable on light duty tasks like a small hen, but they are not ideal for tougher jobs (like a turkey or even an older rooster). The key problem is the pivot bolt... it is loose and leads to frequent jams.
If you work with a lot of poultry, and you need reliable shears to use on a frequent basis, this might not be the product for you.
+solid stainless steel construction
+the drop in the lower blade grips the meat and prevents slipping
+handle grips pretty well even when oily
-can't disassemble, the pivot screw appears to be locked
-handles slip and cross during tougher cuts, jamming the shears
-tolerance on the pivot is too loose. Can struggle to cut even soft tissue as it gets wedged between the blades
Fit and Finish: 5/5
+sharp out of box
+no scratches or sharp edges
+ready to use without adjustments
+comparable items are 3x price
+Only about 7$
The blades will need occasional sharpening. I noticed a drop in performance after processing 6 chickens. 1
