The Insignia collection from Chicago Cutlery includes this pair of heavy-duty kitchen scissors. Like the knives in the collection, the scissors feature high-carbon stainless-steel blades that have been honed with the company’s exclusive Taper Grind technology for optimum sharpness. Whether cutting through chicken wings or snipping articles out of the paper, the scissors will retain their sharpness and can be resharpened when necessary.

Symmetrical handles mean this pair of scissors can be used by left- or right-handed users, and the nonporous polymer coating adds comfort. Steel extensions on the end of the scissor handles function as a bottle opener and flathead screwdriver, while steel ridges between the two sides of the handles can be used to grip recalcitrant jar or bottle lids, or even to crack nuts in the shell. Dishwasher-safe, this true multipurpose tool makes a great gift. –Ann Bieri

  • Mine broke after 2 years of regular use. The plastic part of the handles were the part that broke so I can’t salvage them. They might be inexpensive, but I have seen many other kitchen shears last much longer than just 2 years.

  • I am a bit disappointed that the bottle opener and screwdriver do not retract, but I haven’t used them yet so I can’t say if it will be an issue.

  • They work okay as scissors if you think carefully, but I hate them: if you open the blades too far, the thing falls apart and you suddenly end up with a poor hold of two knife-like things instead. If you have the habit of sometimes using scissors for scoring where at some point during your cutting task you fully open them and just use one of the sides to score a line, these things are frustrating at best and dangerously unusable at worst. Some mechanism that didn’t have them come apart during what for me is a typical use case for normal scissors would be a great improvement. Unfortunately, decades of use of scissors that actually stay together has made it impossible for me to not occasionally get a nasty surprise from absent-mindedly opening them too far without thinking what’s about to happen next, and I certainly have to remember to warn guests of this “feature”.

  • This is a great pair of scissors. I love that it comes apart so that you can give them a good cleaning (since I use mine to cut up meat for my dogs’ raw diet). They cut great and I can even get through most chicken bone. Also cuts paper and other things like that effortlessly. Great deal!

  • I have used Chicago Cutlery kitchen shears for many years, and I have found them extremely useful and well-designed tools. I would note, however, that the plastic handle tends to crack over time, especially if the shears are put through the dishwasher frequently. Chicago Cutlery claims to guarantee the shears for the life of the user, but it simply isn’t practical to spend the money to return them and keep documents on when they were purchased. It’s just easier and cheaper to buy replacements when needed. The shears are very reasonably priced and outperform other brands that cost two or three times as much.
