A pair of kitchen scissors generally tend to be tougher and stronger than other styles of scissors, for a pair of quality kitchen scissors we stock the Fiskars brand which boast finely ground surgical blades, the kitchen scissor variant features a scalloped blade for cutting through tough foods or packaging. It also has contoured handles so that you're always comfortable and in full control.
Because of their size and strength kitchen scissors are perfectly suitable for use as general purpose scissors and it's a good idea to have one around the home. We also stock herb scissors which have multiple blades parallel with each other so that each cut is multiplied five times over. Herb scissors are particularly suited (as the name suggests) to cutting herbs, multiple herbs can be cut into small pieces very quickly using this tool.
