These were rated the best on Amazon so I'm sampling a pair. As soon as my other kitchen shears explode I'm gonna order more. They're great for cutting the toenail off chicken wings and separating the drumetes & flat pieces. There is a YouTube vid of this unit cutting a penny in half. I'm not gonna do that but it's nice to know I can!! Anyway, they're really good scissors and smart to have a few pair scattered about the house.

My first pair have the grey with yellow trim handles and got use to that but the new ones are grey with red trim. I'm really disapointed to find that they are Made in China. The American taxpayer pays my salary and I try my best to purchase American or Canadian made products as often as I can.

Comments:

Use these shears on a daily/weekly basis for 2 years plus. I don't challenge the durability too harshly, but they've survived many a denim jeans, leather belts, leather jackets, and countless layers of anything natural or synthetic. Wish they could have a color variety because everyone I know bought a pair and it makes them easily pilfered. These aren't cheap shears and won't dull in a week. The price is fair considering I would have consumed 5-10 pairs of cheap chrome shears by now. If you work in a trauma bay, make sure you tie these things down because I've had to chase down many a resident for them. They're the best I've found thus far; and I've trashed dozens of shears.

Review: Clauss Titanium Bonded SnipsOK, so I like the extremes of high high tech and low low tech. The middle range is a bit boring for me. I instantly perk up when I hear tritium, titanium and the like as well as forged.I recently purchased a pair of Clauss Titanium Bonded Snips, basically a set of basic trauma scissors coated with titanium for the advantages of titanium. From their web site,Titanium Bonded is not painted or plated, but an application of a unique formulation of titanium and chromium nitride to the surface of cutting blades that actually penetrates and treats the metal to create a permanent bond. The patented Titanium Bonding process provides the following benefits; corrosion resistance, adhesive resistance and the process itself makes the stainless steel 3x harder than untreated stainless providing a blade that stays sharper longer.I have used, abused and broken more than my share of trauma scissors since my 3rd year of medical school, before cell phones and MRIs. At first glance, they appear a step above the fray with better molded finger holes, and of course that cool titanium color. I have only had them for a few weeks, so the claim they stay sharper longer is not yet tested. They do feel a bit sharper than the standard trauma shears. The grips are more comfortable and there is less play at the pivot.As for cutting, they do very well. I don't have a fresh pair of standard trauma scissors for comparison on hand. I did notice that the cutting angle on the finger blade is more acute than most scissors, more along the lines of barber shears than standard scissors, which does give a sharper edge. I think they can use this steeper edge because the titanium bonding adds a bit of strength to the edge ( a more acute angle is weaker in the same metal and more prone to dulling) . The thumb blade is the standard serration. Cutting through clothing is a snap and there is less jamming, The former is due to the scissors sharpness, and the latter may be due to…
