Joyce Chen Scissors are the ideal "everything" scissors. They're fantastic for both gardeners and chefs. They are comfortable and high performance with soft handles that flex and bend with the movements of your hands. The scissors have tapered points for precision cutting and are comfortable for right or left handed use. Their blades are finely honed of chrome molybdenum stainless steel. They're even dishwasher safe and rust resistant. In the kitchen... cut bones, shells, clean shrimp and cut up fresh herbs and use in flower arranging. In the garden...cut twine, wire, plastic, aluminum, cut flowers and use in day to day garden chores.
