I keep both of these shears in my kitchen, and primarily use them for opening packages and other small jobs. When cutting food, I use a different set of shears that will come apart to prevent rusting when they are washed.
I wanted to get some good kitchen/all purpose shears and these are great! I've only had them for a short time so I don't know how well they will work for the long haul, but they have been amazing so far. They are sharp, sturdy and have a plastic snap on cover to protect yourself when they are not in use. Love them!
