Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lots of features in one tool Easy to use and it has many features. The price point is great. I have one and gave them as holiday gifts. Get one!! January 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great snips!! We used these snips to cut metal underpinning, and they cut just like a pair of scissors. They are super sharp and easy to use. December 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Snips! The snips work great and make easy work of cutting thin metals. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tool This snips made a clean cut on metal. Easy to handle. Will be very useful in many of my tasks around the house. October 21, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Less than expected I expected more from Wiss. The snips cut well enough (I tried them on a garden hose, hardware cloth, Romex) but the jaws should open wider making them less akward to use. The safety closing mechanism is stiff and frustrating and the molded plastic catch on the handle girp can bend preventing its use. The catch can be bent back into its functional position but this is something that shouldn't be necessary. Repeated bending will eventually render the closure useless. My opinion, seek an alternative to this tool. August 26, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Poor handle lock design The round handle lock knob lies exactly where my thumb falls. I can imagine developing a blister on the pad of my thumb after using the tool for a while. I will return this and order the other Wiss snips that has simpler handles and lock. August 23, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Missing Parts It was a return from somebody else and part of it was missing. It was far too small for what I wanted to do. I will use if for something else. August 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nice product good scissors will do the job and cut a lot of things August 9, 2014
