These shears feature a super-leverage compound joint for great cutting power with less hand fatigue. Cut straight lines or wide curves—right or left. The slightly serrated jaw provides non-slip cutting on sheet up to .032" (20 gauge). Shears operate like scissors, with blades that smoothly bypass one another as they cut, but have a more robust construction ideal for cutting meal sheet. Straight-blade shears are perfect for cutting fine, straight lines. These shears are made from cast and hardened molybdenum steel; they are not work-hardened.
• The compound joint offers two pivot points and keeps the jaw edges parallel to each other as they open and close, creating even pressure and delivering a clean cut. The jaws remain open until the handles are squeezed closed; a simple hook closure on the inside of the handles keeps the tool closed for safe storage and transport.
• The grips are made of molded plastic for comfort, and have safety guards to prevent slipping.
