Still using knives exclusively in the kitchen? It’s time for "the perfect kitchen scissor", according to Canada's Globe & Mail. Use these Alpen kitchen shears to cut slices of pizza, snip fresh herbs or debone chicken. The ergonomic design is simpler and safer than using a knife. You can also keep them close at hand to open packaging or get a better grip on jars. We love using the center tool to crack lobster shells. Looking for a different finish? The Fennek Italiano Classico kitchen shears are very similar, but with a high-gloss polish.

Alpen is a family-run manufacturer in Premana, an Italian village in Lecco that is a centuries-old centre of heritage cutlery and blades. Brothers Mauro and Pietro Gianola are the second generation to run this business, founded in 1964 during a period of explosive growth that saw Premana emerge as one of the world’s premier scissor-making regions. Alpen’s superior quality, brilliant designs and commitment to traditional craftsmanship have recently attracted growing recognition outside of Italy.

Alpen 8" Italiano Classico Kitchen in Satin
We are very pleased with the Alpen 8 inch kitchen shears in the short time we have owned them. We have used them for poultry and pork prep for our dinner table.
Pruned vegetables, trimmed floral bouquets and even used them to cut infernal shrink wrap packaging. A beautiful tool for food prep purposes, but a useful utilitarian scissor as well. Cheers to all at Ciselier.
Bought 10 pairs of various scissors to give as gifts this holiday season. The business owner is wonderful and thoughtful. Everything arrived on time, nicely packaged with notes and cleaning cloths. I loved how these scissors came apart for easy cleaning. The have the extra function of bottle opener vs. the Primera and Fennek bit i wasn't keen on the shorter blade length so these ones were definitely gifts. We had similar issue on all pairs of scissors in that the convex angle made it difficult for all hands in the household to use (namely my parents and my kids) so we ended up giving them all away but the quality of the steal and weighty feel of these scissors in your hands is great. A great gift idea for any chef.
Very attractive, quality and functional and scissors.
Gorgeous scissors! Beautifully made...
