Poultry Shear  
A tool or kitchen utensil used to cut, break or trim tougher textured food items. The skin or bones of poultry are typical examples of hard to cut parts of food being prepared. The shears most often are made of stainless steel with heavy duty curved blades that allow a firmer grip and more powerful pressure applied to cutting. A notched and serrated blade is also common to allow for better gripping, holding and cutting through bones or tough materials.
