Shears are good for cutting through most things, the advantage of cutting with shears is that you can put more force into the cutting for a faster effective result.

Can I use dull pruning shears to trim a rose bush?


You shouldn't use a pair of pruning shears if they are dull because they could do more harm that good for the plant.

Tip

Sharpening your garden pruning shears


Every so often you will find that your gardening shears just aren't up to snuff. This will usually be most prominent when it get really difficult to cut through even the weakest of branches. Cleaning and sharpening your pruning shears is very simple and can be done in a matter of minutes.

To start you have to make sure that your shears are clean. Its not difficult to clean them, you can use a cleaning solution like scrubbing bubbles to get the dirt off, you just spray them and wipe them off with a soft cloth. If there is a lot of dirt or rust on the blade you might need to use a wire brush or a piece of steal wool to get them clean.

When you are satisfied with how clean the shears are you will need to get a sharpening stone. Carefully using your thumb on the convex blade (the big side of the shear) of the shears find the beveled edge. This will tell you the angle that you should be using to run the stone along the edge at.

When you have identified the angle that you're going to use to sharpen at, take the stone in your dominant hand and in the other hold the shears open. Applying a little bit of pressure rub the stone in small circles. You don't want to over do it, just a few times should be enough to get the blade sharp again.

The beveled edge should be the only blade that needs to be sharpened. On the flip side of the balde you shouldn't need to sharpen because it should be flat. In the case that you run your finger along the flat side and you find a bump you can use your stone to just smooth it out.

When you are satified with how smooth the blade sides are you should put a little bit of oil into the joint of the blades and open and close the blades a few times to get the oil into the gears. And finally using a cloth wipe the oil up and spread it over the blades. Wiping the oil over the blades will help to keep them from getting rusty.

To make sure that are ready to use you can test them on a piece of shrubbery or you can just head back out to the garden and get to work!

What can i do with kitchen shears?


Kitchen shears are a very useful item to have in a kitchen. They can easily and comfortably substitute a knife in many tasks. For example:
- Cutting fresh herbs and spices
- Cutting the roots off vegetables before using them
- Cutting all kinds of raw pastries (like phyllo) and doughs (pizza, pasta etc)
- Snipping pieces of cheese
- Cutting poultry, meet and fish both raw and cooked (for example cutting off wings, cutting poultry into smaller pieces, cutting scales and finns off fish, cutting rotisserie chicken, cutting open crab legs, trimming fat off meat etc)
- Cutting fruits and dried fruit
Shears are also very useful in a kitchen as normal scissors, to cut string, wrapping paper etc

Which is the best kind of kitchen shears?


This article (http://www.cooksillustrated.com/equipment/overview.asp?docid=27679) considered different kinds of kitchen shears of different prices and found that the best shears would be longer but balanced. That would come apart for cleaning, but only after they'd been opened 120 degrees. With a good grip on slippery food. Strong blades but not too hard to close.
My personal suggestion is the KitchenAid shears, that you can find here:
http://www.amazon.com/Kitchenaid-Classic-Shears-With-Black/dp/B0050U240O/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1381749011&sr=1-1&keywords=shears
or the Ergo Chef shears:

Where can i get kitchen shears that come apart so that i can clean them easily?


You can probably find come-apart shears in cookstores and kitchenstores because most professional kitchen shears come apart for better cleaning.
If you want to get them online, tho, I found these on amazon:

Are loppers the same thing as pruning shears?


loppers are similar to pruning shears, but a bit different. Loppers are used with both hands and have long handles. They are made for thick branches that pruning shears cannot cut.

Blades shouldn't be put in the dishwasher. It will ruin the blade and also the handle. Wash the shears with hot water and soup.
