There's a recipe I do that requires me to butterfly a chicken - essentially cutting out the backbone. I've done it with cheaper German-made kitchen shears and it actually broke in my hand. This Wüsthof is a must have for this recipe - it works very well. And the clean up is really easy: just take it apart and wash. Simple, easy to clean, tough, and essential.
