Just want to say that seeing this brand on massdrop makes me feel uncomfortable about owning a massdrop-branded knife, headphones and amp. Maybe massdrop could split off a child company called MassCrap... ok, maybe that's too mean, what about MassProduced? I actually feel insulted on behalf of the massdrop staff that work hard to bring out the custom audio, keyboards, etc, when I come across stuff like this on the same website.

But can these shears cut through 4 pounds of chicken wings as if they're butter? I've tested my Zyliss shears, and they left most of the work to me. Ugh.

Because of these bad comments I read below, I decided to cancel my transaction.

I purchased them on the last drop and revived them last week. If you thinking of getting them, don't think, DO.

I have shears that are identical, bought well over thirty years ago... Likely made by the same company but rebranded. Anyway, I wanted to comment on them, starting with overall ergonomics. These shears are extremely awkward to use. I have fairly large hands (size XL in every glove I buy). It requires a really large opening of the hand to open the cutting end of the shears. At that point, you have to rely on the spring tension to keep the shears ‘wedged’ in your hand so you don‘t drop them. The textured surface on that should supply grip to the handle is nearly non-existing... it actually feels smooth. Mishandling the shears becomes exasperated as soon as your hands become wet or coated with fat from whatever you are cutting with the shears. Next, these shears are not, repeat... NOT! sharp. I really have no idea what the manufacture or designer of these shears was thinking they are intended to be used for... Cutting by use of a sharp bevel gliding over another sharp bevel is definitely not there. I tried using the shears I own, maybe a total of three times, before I put them back in the box and have not used them since. There are MANY other choices for kitchen shears out there... A GREAT example are the Kanemoto Inox Stainless Steel Kitchen Shears. They were part of Massdrop in April, 2017. Those shears are part of an age old proven design, easy to use, come apart for proper washing, have adjustable tension for proper cutting, and..., they are sharp.

These shears are NOT all stainless steel.
These are advertised as being stainless but it appears the spring and other parts are not.
I used these shears for the first time over Thanksgiving and was very happy with how they performed on the turkey. I hand washed them with soapy water when I was done and placed them on the rack to dry (no dishwasher). When I went to put them back in the cupboard yesterday I noticed rust on both the spring and the clip that holds them closed. Additionally, the black writing on the blade was coming off.
Again, to be clear I have used these exactly ONCE and hand washed them with nothing but soapy water and they are already rusting. 13 month warranty is not going to be much good if the replacement also rusts the first time I use it.

No, just regular dish soap as pictured. Soaked in warm soapy water for about 5 minutes since I used them on raw turkey, then rinsed with clean water and put on the drying rack. I have used this same soap for my high end Japanese knives and other hand-washed kitchen items for years with no problems. Thanks for the quick response and support contact info.

So.
Opened the bag. Yes bag. MassDrop. Please talk to the warehouse team. Never ship things like this like you did. It was out of its original packaging. Granted that was already questionable in itself.
The smell. Like a blacksmiths forge. The heft. Like scissors for Hercules. The blades. Like a child attempted to sharpen something without guidance or proper training. Holy WTF. I'm German and my family would disown me if I ever did something like this to metal. Yet I'm not a metalsmith. Pictures below. Basically they sharpened it unevenly and left a burr on it that you can feel but see without eyes. Imagine having a broken nail and then using 99c clippers on it while running your hand across a chalk board. It's disturbing.
I'm talking a metal burr from hell. I could go on and make jokes etc but I got 2 absolutely disappointing drops delivered in one day. My head hurts and I just got home. FML.

Reading your original review of the shears made me a little wary of ordering them from Massdrop. But it was their response to your review that gave me the ease of mind to join this drop. Hopefully, your original experience is a rarity and future shipments will be different. Thanks for sharing, BrainFlush! :-)

You're welcome. I think they'll start making sure no more issues come up.
And again. These did sell well originally. Not hundreds. But enough that there are people with them and so far I seem to be the only one who had an issue. Which would mean they got shears in perfect condition etc. So here's hoping to seeing more of their stuff on MassDrop for us to try out.
