From Klein Tools, the Offset Straight Cut Aviation Snips provide comfortable and reliable sheet metal cutting and trimming. The offset blades keep the users hand away from the metal, and provide ease when cutting tight curves. Forged and heat treated, the steel blades offer strength and durability when cutting or notching sheet metal. The contoured plastic handles are color-coded for easy identification. The snips are spring loaded for easy self opening, and come with a latch to keep the jaws closed when not in use.
