Straight Cut Aviation Snips
Standard Sheet Metal and Duct Cutting Tools
Straight Cut Aviation Snips are distinguished by having a yellow handle. They are used to cut straight lines in sheet metal for fabrication, as well as commonly used as a heavy duty scissor for plastics (including annoying clamshell packing!).
Straight Cut Snips feature drop forged chrome-molybdenum serrated and induction hardened steel blades to cut up to 1.2mm cold rolled steel or 0.7mm AISI-304 stainless steel (18 & 22 Gauge Stainless Roll). Aviation Snips meet or exceed ANSI/ASME B107-16-1998 standards and feature a quick and simple spring free design with a one hand release latch for additional safety. Ergonomic TPR comfort grips offer superior gripping quality and longevity.
Cut Sheet Metal will be sharp! We recommend using
leather gloves with all aviation snips.
