Are you cutting up freshly harvested chickens to ready them for freezing? Portioning poultry in the kitchen? Deboning and skinning before cooking it? Are your wrist and hand sore from using a knife for this task? Using poultry shears makes the job so much easier and safer than using a chef’s knife, boning knife, or any other type of knife. Purpose-designed for these tasks, our poultry shears have heavy-duty, super-sturdy blades that readily cut through cartilage, joints, and bones. Plus, cutting up chicken is a slippery task! Using shears eliminates the risk of injury from knife slips.

Additional Benefits of Our Poultry Shears

  • Stainless steel blades are sharp — and stay sharp — for precise cuts.
  • The ergonomic, spring-loaded handles reduce fatigue and feature an internal spring that stays securely in place.
  • The design includes a bottle opener and fish scaler.
  • They’re handy for cutting up lobster too!

Plus, our Poultry Shears are easy to clean and store safely because they have three lock positions: open for use, close for safe storage, and disassemble for cleaning, sanitizing, and sharpening.

When it’s time to cut a whole chicken into parts, debone the thighs, trim away skin and fat, and butterfly or spatchcock a bird, break out the poultry shears and get the job done safely, precisely, and efficiently.
