Wiss’ new single-ring shop shears provide users with the control of traditional ring shears and the power of heavier industrial shears, officials say. The shears feature full-length steel blades that extend through the handle, which company officials say provides maximum strength. The blades have a titanium coating that is three times harder than steel. Additionally, spring-loaded blades help to reduce fatigue on long and complicated cuts. The shears have a serrated blade that grips materials for a more even cut and feature a die-cast metal lock that keeps the blades closed when not in use.
