Bone notch in wrong place, August 26, 2013

OXO Good Grips Spring-Loaded Poultry Shears, Black
I noticed the first time I opened the scissors that with a comfortable handle grip, the bone notch did not open all the way. The bone notch is located too close to the scissor pivot point. Therefore, you have to open them very wide to use the bone notch and that means the handles are so wide you can't get leverage on the handles. I use my scissors for cutting leg bones when I clean squirrels. I have used the OXO 31181 for years. They work great for cutting leg bones on squirrels. But the weak point of the 31181 was it would not cut meat good at the tip of the scissors. I believe these new scissors are going to be great for tip cutting but are going to be difficult to use cutting bones. I would have never bought these but OXO quit making the 31181. These scissors were twice as expensive as the 31181 but I had no choice except go to another brand. I have always like OXO products but they sure messed up on this one.

The spring on my shears broke after several years of use. After e-mailing customer service they said that I could send a picture of the broken shears, which I did. I was informed that a new pair would be on it's way. After a few days they arrived and I have been using them every since. The OXO Good Grips Spring-loaded Poultry Shears are the only ones I have found that stand up to hard use of cutting chicken with bones. They come apart very easily for through cleaning and ease of sharpening. Great product that the company stands behind. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that they DID break. I'm thinking there was a defect in the leaf spring.
