Scissors are just scissors, right? Not really, there are lots of different types of scissors for various uses. The Magnificent Heavy Duty Kitchen Scissors have a multitude of uses. They have 2 sharp blades that are perfect for all-round use in the kitchen; from opening packets to cutting meat. But they also feature two types of bottle openers – one that opens crown caps (the type that you find on beer bottles etc.) and one that opens twist-off bottle caps. They can also crack nuts, and even feature a serrated fish scaler on the outside edge of one of the blades. And to protect the blades, and your fingers when rummaging around in the drawer, they also have a plastic safety cover that slides onto the blades.


And as a bonus, they even come with a small pair of precision snipping scissors that are great for more delicate cuttings tasks.
