Back home my 92 yr old Mom is trying to get rid of stuff.
She has a pair of poultry shears...made in West Germany...
Wiss...1950's. I'm sure that they need sharpening and they are missing
the spring. We already have an excellent pair of shears...the kind that comes apart and can
cut a penny in half, but what I want are ergonomic shears suitable
for cutting the back bone out of a raw whole chicken. If Mark had
one to sell, I'd be buying it. Seeing her old one makes me wonder
why they are not more prevalent. The curve on the blade sets them
apart as well. They look vicious, seemingly what it takes when cracking
bones. I can find the joints to take apart the rest of a raw chicken with
a knife, not so for the backbone. They can be found on ebay. I'm just not sure
it's worth it. Anyone familiar with this style of poultry shears?
