My first impression when opening up the package was "these look nice!" Right away I noticed the quality, this is not a cheap product. You can tell they've put thought into the design of these sheers with both function and form in mind. They come in a clear plastic storage bag along with a black plastic protector sleeve. I love the large finger holes, it helps with pressure points when cutting meats. I like the black and white color with the chrome joit - looks real sleek! One side of the blade is smooth and the other serrated for more efficient cuts. It also offers a bottle opener built into the blade as well as a jar opener between the finger holes. Overall, I am please with this purchase and would buy more -They'd also make a nice gift.
