It works great, but I have had two of them break while working walnuts. To be really good, they would have to be stronger.
These are great for black walnuts. The first pair that came with the machine broke when I was almost through for this year so I ordered three more pairs. Thank you for standing behind your product and the super fast service.
The one of blades of the shear that came with my GGG broke off shortly after I started using it. I was cutting through a black walnut shell at the time. I've reduced my expectations for this new one. So far, so good.
I suggest you to watch the video about handling a shear. Video link: https://www.grandpasgoodygetter.com/pages/how-to-use-shear-properly
I bought the nutcracker and the shear for my husband. He loves both! He is so excited to be able to easily crack hickory nuts from our tree. He never knew about the shears until I gave him these. He says they work so well. Thank you for these quality products!
These little shears are remarkable. They really do work.
Makes it very easy, great value
I love the shears. My brother from Colorado had been cracking walnuts and I showed him how handy the shears were. He loved the cracker and is amazed at how well it cracks black walnuts.
Good but have problem with the tip breaking off.
Hello Thomas, you can avoid to damage your tip of the shear. Watch a video - https://www.grandpasgoodygetter.com/pages/how-to-use-shear-properly
I am still surprised at how well these shears work. The black walnut pieces are so much larger than when using a pick. Soooooo glad I bought the shears!
I am very happy with both the nut cracker and the shears - I’ve used them on about 500 black walnuts so far. I have found that nuts from a certain tree crack much easier than from other trees and the pieces come out very large. But some other nuts from different trees are harder and the pieces are smaller.
Excellent. Could not get my goodies without them. Fantastic product. Takes a little time to figure the best way to snip to get the fullest pieces but they work like a charm and are absolutely needed.
Quality little clippers, goes right through the shell of black walnut with ease!
The shear works great and if eventually, I break this one, I will buy another
We had bought the goodie getter last year and a pair of shears with it. They work great and needed a 2nd pair to get the work done faster. The new pair we got is a little smaller and not as sturdy as the original pair that we got last year. It still works fine but am worried it may not hold up.
Works great and just the right size.
They worked great. My husband used them to crack the inside membrane of black walnuts.
