"Standard" Aviation snips are available in three blade patterns with serrated edges on both top and bottom blades. They have a cutting capacity of 18-gauge cold-rolled steel and 22-gauge stainless. Available in three different cut patterns: left, right and straight. All of the models will cut straight but only the straight cut model will cut both left and right. The handles are color coded for easy identification. These are great for doing short cuts in sheet metal. If longer or tighter radiused cuts are required, the offset models are recommended as they allow the material to pass easily around the blades and under the handle, similar to how a throatless shear would work. Although these will cut cleanly through stainless, they are not designed for everyday use on it or other hard materials. For cutting hard metals such as stainless steel, inconel, and titanium we recommend the use of Midwest Special Hard Snips.

Specifications of Straight Cut 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. I have used Wiss snips, often daily, for nearly 40 years, and Wiss was the brand used by the professionals I knew when I was growing up. My 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.” - Kent White
