These scissors are the most versatile ones I have seen. They were a gimmie at a Revereware shop that closed recently, buy one get one. I bought about four pairs with different colored handles. The black handled ones live on the workbench, a red handled pair stays in the kitchen and some others are reserved for crafting.

What makes them incredible? They are sharp, stainless steel scissors with decent sized handles, suitable for big hands. The two sides come apart for easy cleaning. The ends of the handles have large and small screwdrivers, and one side sports a bottle opener. Inside the handles is a grippy section for opening difficult jars. They are suitable for lots of kitchen and other tasks in the house, garden, and yard.

    Yes! Those are my favorite kind of scissors as well. I especially appreciate the bottle opener, it comes in handy after a hard session of paper cutting…

    I’ve always thought putting a jar opener on a pair of scissors was a bad idea. I’d feel much safer just running with them than trying to go and open a stuck jar lid with a pair of pointy blades. That said, I’ve previously gone ahead and used them for that purpose anyway and they usually don’t work that well.

    I’ve used these before…

    Be careful! Twice I’ve pinched the skin on my lower palm between the tools that sit on the ends of the handles. And yes, it can hurt a lot.

    Using it as a screwdriver is awkward at best, and the bottle opener doesn’t have enough clearance, plus using either tool you are facing the blades toward your face.

    I like the gripper section between the handles but overall I think this is more gimmicky than actually useful.
