Customer reviewsWorks for me
For all the types that are out there, at a wide variety of prices, this was the best price around. Two fixed blades and one active center blade give nice, smooth, almost burr-free, edges. I was not familiar with this type until I used this one. Be aware that, to give that nice clean cut, this shear produces a thin strip of waste between the two halves produced. You need to pay attention to the desired line and which side of that line you wish to use. This is a characteristic of the tool, not a fault or complaint. I arrived at this choice after some research. It compliments my air chisel set nicely. You can t get such a nice fine edge with a chisel. I m happy and recommend this product.
