SPARKS, Md., April 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Crescent/Wiss®, a premier brand of hand tools from Apex Tool Group, today announced its new Offset Straight Snips. These snips have been designed for safety and performance, allowing users to cut sheet metal more safely with offset blades that keep hands clear of the work while cutting.
Compound lever action, combined with precision-cast serrated blades, reliably cuts up to 18‑gauge steel with 20% less effort. Blade serrations grip the material and spread the cutting force across the blade, improving cut quality as well as enhancing tool life. Spring action provides smooth, effortless feed, even when cutting heavy stock and tight curves.
Extended single-material ergonomic grips help reduce hand fatigue, while the ergonomic latch can easily be opened or closed with one hand. Designed for safety and performance, these snips are another reason why Crescent/Wiss is the first choice of professionals.
"These Offset Straight Snips are not only the safest Crescent/Wiss has to offer, they are the toughest," said Kevin Burnet, Product Manager. "Engineered to cut up to 8 miles of 18-gauge steel, they are built strong and made to last."
The new snips are available now in-store and online from hardware retailers and home improvement centers, from online retailers, and from industrial and commercial distributors. For more information, please visit www.crescenttoolco.com and www.wisstool.com.
