The Best Kitchen Shears!
I adore these Shun kitchen shears, they are sharp, easy to use, comfortable, and easy to clean. They feel really solid and high quality in the hand. They are easy to separate into two pieces for cleaning, but don't come apart by accident. Great design :)

Far superior to Wusthof!
I bought these Shun shears to replace my comparable pull-apart Wusthof shears. Because I am accustomed to German cutlery, I was at first unsure if Shun would give me the same heft, sharpness and overall quality. It turned out that my new Shun pair is far better than my old Wusthof one. The longer blades make cutting easier and faster; and the heft of the steel gives me more force, especially when gutting fish and skinning chicken. These shears are definitely worth the high price. Highly recommended!

Are these shears made by Kershaw for Shun? I'm asking because all of the pictures clearly show "Kershaw" stamped into the scissors.
Andrew on Sep 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these are Kershaw shears.
What is the model number of this product please?
A shopper on Dec 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Essential shears cut through everything from twine to bones, plus they open bottles and jars, crack nuts, lift lids, and more. Rugged stainless steel blades with serrated edge and bone notch pull apart for easy cleaning. Nonslip comfort handles work in either hand. Includes magnetic plastic sheath for safe, convenient storage. 9"" total length. Hand wash. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan.The model number is 1120
Do these shears have the shun logo on them?
Melissa C on Jan 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, the blade is actually stamped with the name KERSHAW, which is the American cutlery comapny owned by KAI, Shun's parent company. The shear's are absolutely the best: comfortable, sharp, and adjustable at the hinge, so they can be tightened to keep them cutting well even after heavy use. I've had mine for years and have given many pairs as gifts.They've also been chosen as the number one choice of AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN, and COOK'S ILLUSTRATED.
