Top Customer Reviews

Some people complain that these shears come apart too easily. They only come apart at a 90° angle, which is an excellent feature, not a bug. At any rate, if you need to cut something when the blades are opened at 90°, you lose most of your strength, rendering the cutting nearly impossible. So the argument is futile and is based on pure ignorance as most of the cutting is done when the blades are ± 45° apart. Those who whine about this "hygienic feature" should either try cooking lessons, or get out of the kitchen. I have sampled many shears in specialized outlets. The Wusthof 5558 are the best of the lot and very attractive at around $12.00. Do make sure the seller cuts his price before you buy this very versatile tool. ;-)

These are strong, solid, tough sharp scissors. They look and feel like quality. One cutting edge is serrated. There is a notch at the base of one blade (not visible in the picture) that catches and holds flower stems, bones, or similar items. The grippers on the handle below the hinge will open bottles or small jar lids. I appreciate that my fingers fit in the handle holes, they are cramped in most other scissors. Wusthoff advertises these as kitchen shears and I`ve no doubt they would cut up a chicken with ease. I bought two pairs and gave one as a Christmas present.

Good design - they function well, are easy to hold and control. I like the way they come apart for cleaning. I took off one star because the plastic handles are a bit down market for my Classic Ikon set - but you get what you pay for, the price is fair.

Update Dec 2013 - I still like them, the edge is holding up well, with no drop in cutting performance and they not not needed sharpening. I am buying a second set to use in the garden for dead heading and light pruning - they perform better than my garden pruners!

I bought my pair just over three years ago -- they're as good now as they were when new. Kitchen and garden use, and they split easily for cleaning, and slide back together with ease.

These shears are awesome. I haven't had much experience with Wusthof products, but now I see why they are so highly rated. These shears with cut through anything and after about a year of use are still just as sharp as the day we got them. I love that they come apart for cleaning and the overall look and feel is quality.
Highly recommended!

These work really well... my old pair of shears broke, so these were a replacement. They are far sharper. I could live without the extra gadgets in the handle, but the blades are awesome, and they clean up easily. I put them in the dishwasher against recommendations but they have suffered no ill effects so far...

A high quality product that is still in perfect conditions two years after purchase with regular use. Remains sharp with no maintenance to the blades. Satisfying ergonomics and easy to clean. One of those things that's worth paying a little extra for in my opinion.
