Kitchen scissors and telephone books


Continuing our discussion of "kli shemelachto l'issur":

Kitchen scissors (aka poultry shears) are not in this category, because their primary use is for food preparation. They are not muktzeh.

Telephone books are assumed to be used primarily for looking up telephone numbers, and so they are considered kli shemelachto l'issur (unless one were to specifically identify his telephone book as a resource for addresses).

(Shemirat Shabbat k'Hilchatah 20:16-17)

Have a great day,
