      cutting blade snapped after the second cut
      I have an old pair of WISS snips that I’ve had for years and they worked great, they were getting a little doll so I decided to buy a new pair unfortunately the new ones are garbage. I was cutting some 20 gauge galvanized sheet metal and after making two cuts the cutting blade snapped broke right off.

        Unfortunately, it did not do the job I bought it to do. But, it was useful on another project and easy to use. Good for rewiring, but not for thicker wire that I wanted to cut.

        I purchased this product to cut a kitchen backsplash I purchased that was made of super thin stone. The snips worked great. They cut the stone easily, with precision and with a clean cut on the edges of the stone. Very impressed!

        The snips cut very well, and the handle provides a good amount of both control and comfort. I was drawn to this set of snips because they are made in the USA, and the quality is evident. I wish more tools were made in the USA.

        High quality, burly construction. Cut edge is straight and sharp, but no burrs. I use them in conjunction with Wiss 7 in. utility shears (also available at Home Depot) for cutting copper sheet. The red and green pair can be used together to reduce waste while cutting through the center of a sheet.

        Years ago (2002) I purchased Wiss right-cut aviation snips and they still preform better than the new (2016) Wiss left-cut aviation snips I just purchased. During the 1st use I had to get out my 14 year old snips to finish the job in a clean and precise manor. Either Wiss quality has gone down the tubes or I was sold seconds on my recent purchase of Wiss Left-Cut Aviation Snips. This did not my expectations.

          Mis-leading picture
          The picture on this item is incorrect (It's stamped into the metal "M1"). All the product that is sold in-store is stamped "M1X". Big difference. I was expecting M1 (detail, fine metal work), but was given M1X which is better for cutting thicker steel. M1 has a fine tip. M1X has a thicker, more blunt tip. Very disappointing that the picture did not represent what was sold in store.
