The fine, straight blades of these stainless steel micro-scissors neatly cut a variety of stringing materials as well as fine-gauge wire and foil. Beading scissors have short, razor-sharp blades that taper to a fine point, allowing clear access to hard-to-reach places. Straight-blade shears are perfect for cutting fine, straight lines in foil and very fine gauges of metal. The tough, rust-resistant stainless steel gives a reasonable life and good value; the jaws may require regular maintenance with use.
• A jaw stop is built into one of the handles to protect the cutting edges from damage caused by them colliding with each other. Jaw-stops prevent over-extension of the tool, which can distort the jaw shape or stress the pivot joint. This fine control is especially useful for production work.
• The handles are designed to slot together and provide their own spring-like tension so that the blades close smoothly as the looped handles are squeezed shut for crisp, steady control.
