The Best Kitchen Shears!
I adore these Shun kitchen shears, they are sharp, easy to use, comfortable, and easy to clean. They feel really solid and high quality in the hand. They are easy to separate into two pieces for cleaning, but don't come apart by accident. Great design :)

I like that it breaks apart for easy cleaning and I have a Shun knife that I really love, so I chose this because of the manufacturer and my requirement to break apart.

Are these shears made by Kershaw for Shun? I'm asking because all of the pictures clearly show "Kershaw" stamped into the scissors.
Andrew on Sep 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these are Kershaw shears.
What is the model number of this product please?
A shopper on Dec 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Essential shears cut through everything from twine to bones, plus they open bottles and jars, crack nuts, lift lids, and more. Rugged stainless steel blades with serrated edge and bone notch pull apart for easy cleaning. Nonslip comfort handles work in either hand. Includes magnetic plastic sheath for safe, convenient storage. 9"" total length. Hand wash. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan.The model number is 1120
Do these shears have the shun logo on them?
Melissa C on Jan 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, the blade is actually stamped with the name KERSHAW, which is the American cutlery comapny owned by KAI, Shun's parent company. The shear's are absolutely the best: comfortable, sharp, and adjustable at the hinge, so they can be tightened to keep them cutting well even after heavy use. I've had mine for years and have given many pairs as gifts.They've also been chosen as the number one choice of AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN, and COOK'S ILLUSTRATED.
Are these shears usable by left handed people?
Renee N on Dec 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm left handed and have no trouble using them, and I use them often for all sorts of kitchen tasks. I also like the fact that the come apart and go in the dishwasher, especially since I often use them for poultry... Hope this helps.
In the description there is a link to Shun's website for free lifetime sharpening on all cutlery. On the website it specifically states that they do not have the proper tools and will not sharpen shears. Has the policy changed?
Rich R on Apr 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I own the Shun shears, it’s the most useful item in my kitchen. It’s incrediblely sharp with an edge that hasn’t need to be sharpen yet. If SLT can’t sharpen it I’m certain the manufacturer can. You might also try honing it to make it edge last longer. Hope that helps
are these easy to use with small hands?
A shopper on Jul 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I think so. My hands are small and I use these constantly. I love them.
