Messermeister 8.5-Inch Take-Apart Utility Shear - 5 stars

Going to keep this post short since today is prepare for Taxes day.

About a year ago when I was collecting the perfect set of knives, I was looking for a set of kitchen sheers. My requirements were that I could easily take them apart to clean them, and sharpen them. 

I had read about these German kitchen sheers made by Messermeister in Cook's Illustrated. They rated these knives highest about 10 yeas ago.. They are really great.


  • Functions include a screw driver, nut cracker, jar-lid opener and gripper, bottle opener, and bone and twig cutter
  • Durable stainless steel construction
  • Separates for hygienic cleaning
  • Dishwasher safe; lifetime warranty

They are pretty highly rated on Amazon. I'm a big fan of these sheers. My wife loves that you can take them apart and stick them in the dishwasher.

Exceptional. A spectacular product.
