Can anyone explain how you use this? Mentioning the part or cut of poultry and the end result you are after would be helpful.

Are all kitchen shears that come apart good for lefties? I have a pair I like, but someone gave me a very similar second pair. I was going to donate it or sell it, but 1) it has a bone notch 2) it's good for lefties also. My little son is left handed. It will be a number of years before he's big enough to use it though.
