Micro-shear flush cutters


For precision cutting jobs of various matierials

I was looking for an inexpensive pair of surgical nippers or tiny scissors for some time, since fingernail scissors have proven to be too fragile for cutting anything (including fingernails). While shopping at Princess Auto I came across this pair of spring loaded stainless steel Palm Nippers (aka Micro-shear flush cutters) which looked like they might fit the bill. These are a great little tool, they are small enough, sharp enough and go down to a fine point for all the precision cutting jobs I might need and they are tough enough to cut copper wire up to 1.2 mm so they are great at cutting cable ties. plastic packaging, thickened toenails and other tough items. I’ll be going back to purchase a second pair for my tool box.
