Wiss MetalMaster(R) snips feature precision cast molybdenum steel jaws that are sturdy enough to cut through low carbon, cold-rolled 18 gauge steel. Get perfectly right cuts on tightly-curved or straight pieces. Blade serrations spread cutting force across jaws improving cut quality and tool life. Superior design prevents tears at the end of cuts by controlling blade bypass and minimizes folding and burrs. The latch operation lends itself very well for both left and right-handed uses, and the spring-action ensures a fast, effortless feed. Handles have built-in stops providing consistent operation and blade opening. Its ergonomic and non-slip design gives you great grip control, while its hang hole adds storage flexibility.
