I got these to replace the standard plastic handled kitchen shears. The difference between the two in comfort is drastic. The old ones used to hurt my hands when cutting through things like chicken wings, these do not. The black material around the openings and the ergonomic shape has done wonders in reducing hand fatigue. I had one issue with these. They traded length of the blade to increase leverage. That is actually a good thing, but the notch for cutting chicken and thick things now gets exposed every time you cut something. Consequently, it makes a slight clicking noise after it closes past this point. At first this made me think I got a defective one, and that over time they might stop working properly. After you use them for a while it's obvious they are made well and will last. Still though, that little noise is a little unnerving until you get used to it.
