Aviation Snips

"For many years we have carried Wiss brand aviation snips, but recently we learned an important fact about their manufacture: they are no longer forged. Kent has used Wiss snips, often daily, for nearly 40 years, and Wiss was the brand used by the professionals he knew when he was growing up. His old pre-1970 snips are great, but Wiss has changed their manufacture away from those forged snips to cast ones. We now carry Midwest Snips. They are forged, and they are American-made. Midwest also offers "extra-hard snips" for those of us doing stainless and titanium. We offer all of the many patterns offered by this excellent company, and are very pleased to offer you the best on the market today, Midwest Snips."
