I’ve been using the wrong search term when looking for good scissors for cutting up chicken. Amazon offers tons of listings for kitchen shears/scissors. I have several pair that are just okay. Then I saw these! Had to have them! They do a good job of cutting a chicken into smaller pieces.The red latch tab is pretty flimsy and I worried that it would break off, sooner rather than later, but it folds away into a slot while the shears are in use. Of course they come apart for washing. I like that they are spring loaded, and that if you need to really bear down to cut a bone you can let the bottom handle rest on the cutting board and put your full weight on the top.
