The first reaction anyone has when picking these up the first time is "My, these are quite heavy." The second reaction (after using them to cut anything) is "Don't you dare take these away from me. They're mine and mine alone." Made of fully forged stainless steel with handles a full 5/16" thick. But there's something about the geometry of the design that simply powers-up your hand and makes them very comfortable to use.

The cutting edges are 3" and come apart for cleaning. It seems that they will cut almost anything - although we have not yet tested hardened sheet steel. Buff satin finish. We couldn't possibly recommend them more.

  • Excellent!

    Mike, 10/24/2015 Used these for a while before writing the review. These are great! Contrary to some other opinions, I do not find them too big or heavy. The cut great and have a nice solid feel. It is nice to finally have scissors that the kids can not destroy.
  • Made For Large Hands

    Edward P, 7/23/2015 These scissors are great for me. I have always struggled with shears that come with a kitchen knife kit or just ones you use in the shop. With these I am able to get my hand in the handles and use force without the worry of having to cut them off after I am done. However, my wife finds them way to big, but she has no problem with the scissors I described earlier. So while these are not made for everyone, they are great from those who get their hand stuck in generic shears.
  • Kitchen Scissors

    Jon, 7/15/2015 These Shears are really great. They are so good that my wife asked me to order a second pair. They clean up nicely and work great on sea food and shell fish.
  • Can't Buy Just 1 (or 2)

    David Freeman, 7/9/2015 I've had one of these scissors in my shop for a couple years. It is tough and has serious heft that has led me to abuse it often but it's very easy to sharpen so no harm done. I recently bought two more as gifts but my wife saw them and assumed one was for her. She was so happy that I quickly redirected one as a thoughtful gift to her. She loves it!
  • Exceptional

    Stanley M. Byer, 6/28/2015 I got one a few months ago & found it Exceptional. I bought a second recently because it is Exceptional. I midnight buy more for anyone I think will appreciate an Exceptional pair of shears !!!
  • Remarkable Shears

    Corey, 4/11/2015 These are heavy duty beautifully cutting shears. They come apart without tools for easy and thorough cleaning. I bought the first pair for my kitchen over three years ago and liked them so much I bought two more. One for my workroom and one just because. Even after three years of use and abuse and still look and work just like new! This is exactly the type of high quality tool I have learned to expect from Garret Wade.
  • Protect Your Scissors, Buy Extras

    Roberta S, 4/6/2015 I bought two pairs to protect my access to one - I KNEW that someone else in my household would run off with them if I didn't buy the second. These are super tools, a bit heavy as noted, but strong, well-made, and even beautiful. I had forgotten how handy it is to have them come apart, too!
  • Bad Ergonomics

    Gary, 3/1/2015 Although the finish quality of these scissors in fine the handle openings are so large and hands fit so poorly that they make using them difficult and uncomfortable. I have returned them for a refund.
  • Best Ever!

    Nancy Gallatin, 2/13/2015 These are the best kitchen shears I have ever used. My husband ordered these shears for me along with a pair of shop shears for himself. I am a petite grandmother having dainty hands, and my husband was concerned about with the size of the grips. He had read the reviews from people that had complained about the grips hurting their hands and other complaints. I find these to be very user-friendly and easy to clean. The quality is beyond comparison with anything I have used or have seen.
  • Our Favorite Scissors!

    JD, 2/12/2015 Fabulous scissors! Heavy duty and well made. We have had a very nice pair of scissors that come apart previously, but these were an afterthought buy and turned out to be the best! Nice feel in my small hands. I don't know why anyone would complain. I had read the negative reviews about them suddenly coming apart, but although we've had these since before Thanksgiving 2014, I've never noticed that happening, not once! Perhaps these other folks haven't used scissors that can separate and go into the dishwasher. For use in the garden or in the kitchen, these are wonderful scissors, and I am VERY happy with them! Our go-to scissors for sure!
  • Heavy and Able

    Michael Young, 2/12/2015 Clauss makes fine products. I use them for fabrics and heavy carpet repairs. These kitchen shears are no exception. They came sharp, are easily taken apart to clean the joint, and the separate halves are actually useful for those odd heavy duty tasks that a lighter weight knife might not handle well. They fit my rather large hands perfectly. These shears can also be sharpened as you would a chisel or plane iron. The reason for a four instead of a five is my wife's feeling that the shears are heavier duty than she is. She has small hands and arthritis. She still uses them for the big stuff and the light weight sewing shears for light weight cutting. I have used them for far more than the kitchen chores- thus the purchase of two pair. I also bought a third pair as a well received gift for the wife's friend, who loves them.
  • Best Utility Shears Ever

    Andrew T. Beem, 2/11/2015 These are the absolute best utility shears I have ever used. They are the most used tool" in my kitchen/garage."
  • Great Kitchen Shears

    Daniel, 1/30/2015 Love them. They work like nothing else I've ever used. I can mince herbs or cut up chicken with the same tools. All stainless and come apart for easy cleaning and sanitizing.
  • Left Hand Approval

    Jonell Cadman, 1/28/2015 First bought a pair of these for my daughter as a gift, my son in law, a lefty, tried them, then collected all the other scissors in the house and tossed them out. After my daughter rescued her sewing scissors, they decided these were the best all purpose scissor ever. I bought a second pair as a present for my son in law, his very own.
  • Great Scissors

    Eric, 1/27/2015 These are well made beautiful scissors. The price is very good for the quality. I highly recommend them.
  • Excellent Kitchen Shears

    Rick, 1/23/2015 These are nicely weighted, solid shears.
  • Quality and Ability at its Finest

    Michael Young, 1/18/2015 Claus has never made a less than superior tool, and this pair of shears is no exception! I gave several pairs as gifts and all comments were the same. All said that they were "heavy", but the balance and shape made up for that. Both ladies they were passed on to were impressed with the fact that they came apart for cleaning and that I could sharpen them if they ever became dull. My personal pair has seen some pretty heavy duty use boning animals and cutting nearly everything that needed cut. I haven't sharpened them yet, but am looking forward to doing some for friends who insist in putting them in the dishwasher. Maybe they will hold up against the dishwasher if they aren't put in the basket disassembled. Again, these are really fine tools and should serve several generations if even minimally maintained.

  • Too Big For My Hands

    Judy, 1/2/2015 The finger space is too big. Neither I nor my husband can open them far enough to make them useful. Wish I could return, but cannot find receipt.
  • Great Scissors

    Everett Haldiman, 12/20/2014 These are a very heavy duty type and I can actually get my thumb out of the scissors. My wife uses them in the kitchen and likes them well. Thank you.
  • Best Shears Ever

    Andrew Beem, 11/11/2014 The Best shears I have ever used. Now the only shears I use. They work smoothly and will last forever.
  • Tough Dawg Scissors

    Vincent Meeks, 9/20/2014 I fell in love with these scissors. I'm the kind of guy that prefers knives but this pair of scissors can do some heavy duty work that a knife really can't do. I love this knife. I even inscribed my name on them! Don't touch my scissors! Lol.
  • Sharp

    Tony Aruta, 5/9/2014 Very Sharp and balanced.
  • SS HD Scissors

    J B, 4/19/2014 Excellent scissors. Well worth the money. Very heavy duty and strong. So good and easy to use that I bought a 2nd pair and probably will buy several to use as gifts. Easy to separate and clean. No negative comments, except may be a little difficult for a person with tiny hands.
  • Great Shears!

    J. Earle, 4/5/2014 These are great shears. We are enjoying using them and really like that they come apart for easy cleaning.
  • Real Heft

    Julian Halliday, 3/22/2014 I bought a pair of these for myself because they looked cool; they are exactly as described in the catalogue, if not better -- their weight and smooth action is quite startling on first encounter. In fact, I liked them so much (and I have a much more expensive pair of kitchen scissors that now sit forlornly underemployed) that I bought pairs for my sister and my nephew. Because, you know, these scissors are just *cool*.
  • Quality

    Gerry Meininger, 3/16/2014 Initially skeptical when I ordered these but as soon as I took them into my hand and felt the weight and heard how precisely the blades scissored, I knew I had a winner. They clip and snip better that any kitchen shears I have owned. I doubt I will need to replace this pair.
  • Good Shears but with a Drawback

    Annetta J. Kushner, 3/11/2014 While these stainless shears have a nice heft and appear to be useful, there is one drawback: they separate too easily when opened all the way. One will have to be mindful of that and avoid this problem.
  • Great Scissors

    Tom Gray, 2/26/2014 These scissors mean business! They have a solid, balanced feel and come apart for easy cleaning. Use them in your kitchen or office or for light duty shop work.
  • Excellent Shears

    Doug, 2/3/2014 Wow. These are heavy! The tips had a bit of flashing from the grinding process, and I scratched myself while handling them. But I got some sandpaper from the garage and in 10 seconds they were smooth and comfortable to handle. I love em! I'm so used to light-weight shears -- these are surprisingly hefty because they are solid metal. Awesome!
  • Not Quite The Hype

    Elad, 1/28/2014 Bought one to evaluate for Xmas gift 2014, heavy, quality SS and the better half said; to heavy for her in the kitchen". I thought the shears came apart to easy. Needs a cam lock or something to stop that from happening. When I picked the shear out of the electrician bag, it fell apart, this happened several times. Last point;"whoever" uses this shear needs strong hands to cut anything thick, the design needs ergonomic improvement. Not buying any for 2014 Xmas gifts. //Elad// "
  • Very Sturdy

    D Merritt, 1/10/2014 These 8 long (with a 3" cutting edge) shears are very heavy duty and very nicely finished. Just pivot fully open to easily separate for cleaning. The openings are large enough to fit those with larger hands comfortably. They are very good value for the cost."
  • An Instant Heirloom, a Useful Tool!

    Timothy Davis, 1/8/2014
  • Giftable

    Jonell Cadman, 12/5/2013 My first impression was that I should return all the other gifts and just give these. Heavy, sharp, solid, everything you want in a kitchen and more shear.
  • A Cut Above

    Ray Resetar, 11/2/2013 Usually everything you buy lands in the kitchen or area nearby. Say good by to the nightmare plastic packaging. These go through anything. Great grip and easy to control.
  • Sissors/Shears

    Jim, 6/23/2013 My wife finds these scissors to be heavy, well made and likely useful for many outdoor chores she does.
  • Works for everything

    Will, 4/22/2013 These are heavy, sharp and extremely well made. From plastic freezer bags to lobster shells to opening those pesky clamshell boxes they work. Got one for the kitchen, one for the shop and one for the condo.
  • Great kitchen scissors

    Chris, 3/17/2013 I just received these and they are excellent. (Once I've had them for a while, I'll revisit. They probably deserve 5 stars, but I'm not going to do that until I've had them for a while.) Heavy, solid and great in the kitchen. Certainly worth the price.
  • Cut a rug

    Terry Polyak, 1/21/2013 Cut a rug, chicken, debone something or cut paper dolls whatever you want, these are great! Get two and give one to friend.
  • Great gift

    Ralph, 1/1/2013 Bought these for a gift to my Sister at Christmas. Everyone that saw and touched them were instant converts - solid construction and easy cleaning - they went to work immediately as kitchen shears with preparations for Christmas dinner - next in line to get a pair for my household.
  • Awesome Kitchen Shears

    Heather, 1/1/2013 I bought these for both my parents and my in-laws as they work so well on meats etc ... in meal prep. Great strong shears!
  • Beautiful

    GTinVA, 11/1/2012 Beautiful shears. Two polished stainless-steel halves and one pivot. No plastic or rubber to diminish their integrity. What could be better. I love great tools. I love these.
  • Sweetheat Shears!

    Don Brurud, 12/13/2011 Heavy, yes. The weight allows more precision. They cut through a chicken with ease and come apart easily for cleaning. A super kitchen shear.
  • Can't beat these!

    Thomas, 4/7/2011 Been looking for some REAL shears..... this is it. Heavy duty, not BS kind of shears. This is not some cheap plastic department store type shears. These are a real man's shears.
  • Big and heavy

    M Dimon, 1/2/2011 Very heavy duty shears; smooth working, even cutting, sharp. Finger holes are too large for my wife's hands but that's ok, I'll have to find a home for them in my shop. lol. Work very well with gloved hand.
  • Take-Apart Construction Rattles During Use

    Jeff , 12/30/2010 These are indeed heavy, solidly made scissors and they do indeed cut well. However, their take-apart construction leaves something to be desired. As you open and close the scissors, they two pieces start to come a little loose, rattling a little in your hand. The angle at which they come apart entirely is also narrow enough that it's possible for the scissors to come entirely apart while you are working them one-handed. Granted, you have to open them a bit wider than you normally might while cutting, but the overall effect is unsettling. All that heavy solidity of the scissors is undone a bit by their loose rattling in your hand as you work them. Still, for their price, you won't find anything nearly so heavily constructed or nice to look at.
  • Shears Extraordinaire!

    Chip Duchein, 12/13/2010 I first used these shears helping cook a meal at a friend's house and was so impressed with them that I immediately ordered a pair. After using them, I ordered three for Christmas presents. These shears simply get the job don in a fashion that I've never experienced before. They are of very high quality, comfortable to the hand, and have easily removable blades to allow them to be sharpened as one would do with a knife. They cut paper as easily as a heavy chicken bone and once you try them, you will not want another!
  • Outstanding Quality

    Chip, 12/5/2010 After using these for 3 months, I can honestly say that they are the finest kitchen shears that I have ever seen or used in my life, and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. The blades separate, making it very easy to sharpen, not that I have had to yet. Very high quality product!
  • Best scissors ever

    Marion, 12/1/2010 I have a lot of scissors, but these are definitely the best. Heavy, yes, but capable of delicate snipping, too. The only scissors I seem to need anymore!
  • Quality

    Richie, 11/19/2010 they are outstanding
  • get them

    Betty, 8/19/2010 I though they would be too heavy for me and I would give them to my husband, but these are mine. He can get his own.
