There's almost nothing worse that grabbing a pair of scissors to cut that fat off the raw chicken legs and find that the scissors don't cut!
That's when I call my hubby, Andy, to come to my rescue.
Not only does he come to the rescue because he really LOVES the oven-grilled chicken, but he knows how unsafe dull tools can be.
However, it's not always dull blades that are the problem. Sometimes it's other things. If you know for sure that it's dull blades, then check out Andy's article on "Kitchen Scissors". He'll lead you step-by-step through his quick and easy instructions for sharpening scissors.
The likely culprit is that the blade edges don't glide over each other because thepivot-screw or rivet is loose.

This tip works well for poultry shears and in the workshop also: tin snips, garden secretaries (snips), hedge trimmers, tree branch trimmers, etc.
BLADES are bent?
Check the blades for straightness; it could be that after trying to open the lid on a pickle jar, that one or both blades are bent.
