The extra-fine 16° cutting edge cuts of our elegant Shun Herb Shears cuts cleanly and won't bruise delicate herbs. A built-in blade notch makes it easy to strip herbs or cut through their stems. The high-carbon, molybdenum-vanadium, stainless-steel blades offer extra-long life. The ergonomically designed grip is padded with elastomer plastic for maximum comfort and the shears are suitable for both left- and right-handed use. For easy cleaning, the blades separate. An interlock screw lets you adjust the blade tension to suit your preferences.
