EDIT - I see some weekend warriors don't know their facts. I use snips almost every day, read my link in the comments or don't, but don't try to tell people that casting is superior. It is cheaper, and that's the only reason some companies prefer it. Back to the review -

Word is that Wiss has switched from forging to casting, which is not desirable in this application. Whatever the reason, these do not hold up like better brands anymore. I've seen several Wiss bite the dust on identical material which I chewed right through with my Midwest snips, also US made. Wiss is not up to the standard they once were. Additionally, the blades will not stay tight despite the nylon locknut, I'm constantly retightening them.

Chances are if you're looking at a pair of these as opposed to offset snips, these would suit your needs just fine, but I'd still recommend the Midwest version, about the same price, and they'll be there when you need to cut something heavier.

I am using these for making chain mail, so I am not sure how useful this review will be. This means I do batches of about a hundred or so rings at once. Before I was using cheap bolt cutters, but these are so much better. The handle is comfortable and it's kept its edge for longer than the bolt cutters so far.

I have RSI on both hands - and was sawing through copper with a jewelry saw for a project. This was so much better - quite literally a hot knife through butter. Cut a little wider than the mark, this takes off more than you think - and does leave a serrated edge, which was entirely worth it.

These cut through metal duct like butter; probably because they are made in the good ole USA. Also you can get these for a bit cheaper at home depot

I have owned these snips for over 10 years and they have served me well in many home renovation and construction projects. As old as they are, the grips are still comfortable and they are still sharp... and nowhere near ready for the trash bin!

I highly recommend this tool.

I used to make a lot of chain mesh product for friend who did medieval recreation. I absolutely fell in love with this tool which I can no longer find in the hardware stores. I love it, and I'm thrilled to have a brand new one in my hands!

I had Wiss left and right cut snips and needed a straight cut snips also. Works great and is of good quality like the Wiss snips I have used. The price was good compared to the few options I have locally. I would buy from this seller again.

I have been buying metal cutting snips for over forty years. The only model I will buy is Wiss. You can be sure the metal blades are properly hardenedso they do not separate while making a cut and they stay sharp. With many of the other brands the blades separate from each other making a poor cut; and with use no cut.
