These Self Opening Kitchen Shears are sprung to automatically reopen after each cut.
HOW TO USE
Unlock the red safety catch. Gently squeeze the scissors to cut through food, packets etc. If required wash with warm soapy water and allow to dry and then squeeze handles together to re-lock to keep safe when not in use.
A good pair of kitchen shears works wonders, use to cut plastic bags and meat packages open, herbs into small pieces, even pizza!
