Review in progress!

Upon initial inspection, it’s really hard to believe that this tool sells for so little. This is a quality tool! See the specs below.

 

  • Anodized aluminum magazine holds up to 60 Fasteners at a time and accepts Arrow T50 Brand staples between 1/4 and 9/16-Inch
  • Anodized aluminum cylinder provides a more durable surface when the piston is firing and retracting during use, leading to less wear and tear on the internal parts
  • Non-marring tip helps protect your work surface from any scratches or marring inflicted by the tool
  • Includes oil and wrenches
  • Die-cast aluminum construction

The Bosch Active Response Technology platform helps reduce the risk of injury to users by combining advanced Bosch sensors and electronics with mechanical injury-prevention systems.

This high-speed action helps mitigate the potential of serious user injury and occurs without damaging the blade. After activation, the system can be reset in less than 60 seconds. A dual-activation cartridge enables two incidents before a replacement cartridge is needed.

– Precision cast blades made in the USA
– 20% less force to cut
– Improved ergonomics grips and latch
– Better and more consistent handle span

Wiss Edge Aviation Snips
Designed for extreme durability and performance.

For decades, Wiss has been the professional’s go-to snip.
Now, the new Wiss Edge series, available in Straight, Left and Right-cut models, redefines performance with a total system design for increased durability, consistent control and exceptional comfort.

An improved compound action features the unparalleled Wiss pivot bolt system that performs six times longer than other snips. And a new ultra-durable spring lasts four times longer. The result…reliable performance, job after job after job.

The redesigned blade and handle combination positions material closer to the action for optimum leverage—reducing the force needed to cut by an average of twenty percent. Integrated stops ensure the blades open fully giving you the maximum cut length.
Combine the gripping power and force distribution of the legendary Wiss serrated blade, and you’ll make faster cuts with precision accuracy…every time.

Professionals know hand fatigue affects performance. Wiss Edge snips have an ergonomically advanced design to maximize comfort. Dual material grips and a longer palm handle conform naturally to the hand and provide added comfort and control. A new latch provides convenient locking and unlocking—even when wearing gloves.

Wiss Edge Aviation snips—The professional’s new standard in cutting.

Wiss
Precision. Performance. Durability.
