I have been eyeballing this set for over a month, hesitant ONLY because the negative reviews were all about how the chunkers/thinners often came and broke immediately or just simply didn’t work. Unfortunately, mine was not exclusive to this issue. I literally pulled out my new chunkers to use them, opened them to cut, and couldn’t close them. The teeth in the end closest to the handles were catching on the edge of the blade. I’m extremely frustrated and very sad that, while the other two shears cut WONDERFULLY, my chunkers cannot be used. I would love to hear from you all to see if there’s any way this can be fixed. I truly do love the look and feel of these shears.
