In 1847, Jacob Wiss opened a small shop in New Jersey forging surgical instruments and shears that paved the way for today’s premium line of scissors, snips and specialty trade tools.
In the 1940's, our aviation snips were a key tool for cutting aircraft sheet metal during WWII and became best sellers after the war ended.
Our next generation snips stay true to form with new ergonomic features.
The shape consistency and proprietary serration process of our snips produce blades that cut up to 8 miles of steel.
Our precision cast blades, along with an improved pivot design, provides a longer cut life allowing you to get more work done.
Our improved pivot bolt design features built-in stops for consistent jaw opening and upgraded spring action for a fast, effortless feed.
Crescent Wiss® offers a limited lifetime warranty on our products to be free of defect in material and workmanship.
