    These are a must have for the kitchen!

  2. Joyce F. (verified owner)

    I bought two pairs of these shears. One for me and one for my son. We both like them. They are definitely sharp and a nice weight to use. I like them better since I got mine to come apart to wash them. They were tight at first. I use scissors a lot when cooking so appreciate getting a really nice pair.

  3. Robert R. (verified owner)

    Excellent design that makes clean up a breeze.

  4. Gregory H. (verified owner)

    I was surprised by the precision with which these scissors were made. Definitely professional quality.

  5. George M. (verified owner)

    Quality Product

  6. Christopher Z. (verified owner)

    Easy to use and clean – we love them!

  7. Annette G. (verified owner)

    They are beautiful and work great. I bought several for family and friends and it was a great gift. Everyone loved them. Especially the made in America.

  8. Andrew J. (verified owner)

    I’ve purchased multiple products from Lamson and none of them disappoint. Great products and made in USA.

  9. Hannah B. (verified owner)

    This is one of the best kitchen shear I ever purchased

  10. Randy F. (verified owner)

    Very sharp. Really nice fit. Works very well for quick cutting of herbs.

  11. CAROL S. (verified owner)

    The shears are of a quality that I always get with Lamson products. They are heavy enough to tackle all kitchen jobs and easily come apart for washing.

  12. Alexander H. (verified owner)

    Came sharp, easy to take apart and clean, and nice and hefty I in the hand collared to my previous plastic handled shears.

  13. Mr J. (verified owner)

    Everyone needs a reliable well-made pair of kitchen shears. These are really good ans will last a lifetime. I appreciate good worth and

  14. Ryan W. (verified owner)

    I have been searching for a pair of sturdy take apart shears for awhile. These are as good as it gets. Sturdy and sharp. These are the only pair of scissors you need.

  15. Jemma (verified owner)

    Impressed with these shears. It did take me a minute to figure out the breakaway, and I may have lightly stabbed myself once trying to handle these when the prongs were separated, but now that I have trained myself in safe handling, I love these. They are extremely sharp. Next level.

  16. Rick V. (verified owner)

    The best feature of these shears is “precision!” They cut beautifully and are so easy to take apart and clean. Since I am a “lefty” using shears is always a challenge – these shears are a dream to use left-handed. I’ve cut up everything from veggies to a whole chicken. Amazingly, these shears don’t “look” like they could handle the big tasks – but there is no flex to the blades and they will go through very heavy fat and tissue. Couldn’t be more pleased.

  17. Wade S. (verified owner)

    Shears cut well and are easy to clean, a nice product.

  18. Joe S. (verified owner)

    Another lifetime tool. Work great and cleaning is so simple. Last pair of scissors you will buy.

  19. Marina K. (verified owner)

    I love these shears. They’re high quality, the cut action is perfect, they’re lightweight while still being sturdy, the breakaway for cleaning is the best. I can’t say enough about them really, I’m in love. I’m slowly getting everyone I know a pair.

  20. Eric K. (verified owner)

    Best kitchen shears ever.

  21. Ann W. (verified owner)

    Great quality kitchen shears. I’ve had two of these for many years and just added another. Durable and they wash up easily in the dishwasher.

  22. Leslie H. (verified owner)

    I was looking for simple stainless steel kitchen scissors and these are just perfect. I love that they come apart easily for cleaning. Seem like they will last forever.

  23. Joan K. (verified owner)

    The scissors are very sharp and helpful when cutting poultry. It took me a minute to figure out how to put them back together but I’m glad they separate. It allows you to clean them really well.

  24. Scott R. (verified owner)

    Perfect fit for my hands and feels very natural in use, breakaway allows for easy and complete cleaning.

  25. jonathan U. (verified owner)

    essential tool. get one

  26. Lizabeth I. (verified owner)

    Seemed very sharp. It’s to be a gift.

  27. Christiana R. (verified owner)

    Easy to client, sharp and well made.

  28. Michael M. (verified owner)

    This is my second pair of shears a must in any home cooks kitchen.
    No plastic handles, easily taken apart and sanitizing in the dishwasher makes this my choice of kitchen shears.

  29. Anthony G. (verified owner)

    The scissors are nice and sharp, but the best feature is that they separate easily into two pieces. This makes them so easy to clean, but they also feel very secure when put together.

  30. Andres V. (verified owner)

    I am so happy with Lamson! Awesome products and American made!!!

  31. Matthew L. (verified owner)

    Great product. Very happy with the feel and sharpness.
    I work in a professional kitchen and they will be perfect for what I need.

  32. Melissa H. (verified owner)

    I love these shears. My daughters are in college so I bought two more that I plan on give them as graduation gifts. Good kitchen shears are essential to a good kitchen.

  33. Finbar C. (verified owner)

    Haven’t had them long enough for comprehensive review but impressed with the initial sharpness and build quality

  34. Nikole R. (verified owner)

    Spatchcocking a chicken is a breeze, as is cleaning with the breakaway feature. Great value for the price, too.

  35. Thomas C. (verified owner)

    They’re perfect. They don’t try to be a knife, a can opener, a bottle opener, a potato peeler. They’re shears, and they’re the best at being just that. Ergonomics were perfect. Finish is smooth, clean, and looks like it belongs in an operating room. Once in hand, they’re effective, require enough effort that you’re in control, and remind you you’re doing something.
    They’re shears. Wonderfully, beautifully crafted, shears.

  36. Isaac A. (verified owner)

    Perfectly suited for a variety of tasks. Makes spatchcocking a chicken a breeze. The breakaway function makes cleaning very easy. I really like the complete metal design. No creases or cracks where metal meets plastic to worry about. I’m always confident in the cleanliness and sharpness of the shears. Highly recommend.

  37. Joshua F. (verified owner)

    They seem durable and cut well. They are easily separated and put back together for washing.

  38. Jessie G. (verified owner)

    Super sharp, good feel and grip, and they can separate for cleaning. 100x better than the ones that came with my knife set.

  39. Paul H. (verified owner)

    I love my new kitchen shears.

  40. Kenneth B (verified owner)

    While I don’t normally write reviews on products, these kitchen shears deserve a note. They are well balance, sharp, and easy to clean. They are probably more expensive than other shears, but well worth the extra cost. They will most likely last decades if properly maintained.

  41. Clifford S. (verified owner)

    I had been looking for scissors for awhile. Bought these and I am very pleased. Well made, solid and they cut!

In 1869, newly elected U.S. president Ulysses S. Grant received a “cutting edge” gift from a small manufacturer in Shelburne Falls Massachusetts. Lamson presented our nation’s leader with a 62-piece dinner set. 
The handcrafted pieces bore handles of ivory, while others were pure mother-of-pearl. The 62 pieces remain in the nation’s capital on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
