12 in. Right Cutting Aviation Snips is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed It's not smooth in the cutting motion, a lot of pressure has to be applied. Bought a wiss cutter and you can feel the difference in smoothness in the cuttting motion. Love Milwaukee tools but this was a big let down.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Huge Disappointment Let me start this by saying that I am a HUGE Milwaukee (Techtronic Industries) fan. Whenever a tool is needed, I always go for a Milwaukee variant if it exists. This goes for hand tools, 12v Cordless, 18v cordless, corded, and bench-top tools. I had absolutely no reason to think that these snips would not deliver. Everything from Milwaukee has greatly impressed me, always. Somehow, they even do Sharpie's better. These snips cut pretty well. If you follow proper technique and usage of the snips, they cut well. Snips do not cut like scissors, so treating them like "metal scissors" you will get sub-par results no matter the quality. They did not leave any major marks or scars on the metal, and the cutting action performed well. Why are these such a huge disappointment? The spring. These snips are so weak that they do not open their jaw at all. The snips have to be manually closed, and manually opened. The spring is not strong enough to open the jaw. If you are only making a couple of snips, this is not a big deal. But on bigger projects, the stress on your hands truly does add up. I found that I needed to keep my ring and pinky finger on the inside of the grip, so that I can use pointer and middle to close, ring and pinky to open. Milwaukee, please fix this. It is a really ugly blemish on an incredible record. This is the only Milwaukee tool that I would not recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great snips to last a lifetime, I intend to get the whole set I own a lot of Milwaukee tools, and these certainly fall on the cheaper side of their hand tool line. Considering their size, I wondered why that was. Now that I've tried them, I'm still wondering, because they are well-built, serve their purpose, and some others, masterfully, and appear to be the kind of tool that will last for years. I have fairly mall hands for a man, and these are rather large, which initially looked like it might be a bit of a problem for me, but I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable they were to use. I wear a size Medium in gloves, if you wear a glove size Small I'd recommend trying these out in the store before purchasing as you might find them a little too large for your taste. Called 'aviation snips', I don't have any airplanes to try these on, but they cut through heavy gauge wire, sheet metal and some small nails like they were soft butter. Having kept them on my kitchen counter for a few weeks, I found myself cutting all kinds of stuff with these with great ease. These have a spring hing that makes using them very easy & efficient, and thankfully solid latch too. The latch to keep them closed is perfectly located to flick open or closed with your thumb. Unlike some of the other Milwaukee tools I've used that had a plastic sliding closure that was prone to become loose & useless, this is a pretty sturdy metal latch that looks like it won't have any trouble standing up to use. While billed as right cutting, I found a could cut to the left without great difficult, though they do feel better and more accurate cutting to the right. For the price, I intend to get the left cutting ones as well. One thing I did notice when opening them was some slight oily residue on the blades. This isn't really a problem, but you might want to take a look for this before setting your new tool on anything you wouldn't want to get a little oil on. If you're thinking of buying these and the similar left cutting & straight cutting snips, you might consider the combo pack that includes all three to save a little money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Metal Shears These shears are easy on the hand to use, cut well, give a smooth edge, and are a good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great snips for gutters and general use Bought these primarily to install gutter and they worked like a champ. I've gotten good use out of them since for general household and garage use. Not something I would have purchased were it not for the gutter project but definitely glad to have them.
