Klenk Tools offers a redesigned offset snip for use in HVACR, roofing, and sheet metal and other construction trades. Thicker alloy steel blades increase the snip's strength and durability. Improved heat-treating and forming processes produce tougher, stress-free blades for greater resistance to wear and breakage. Using a new precision grinding process together with a unique blade design yields a snip that glides through metal, making straight, curved and circular cuts. To make the snip more comfortable to use, its handles are designed to open only 5 inches, and still allow a full-length cut. This new offset aviation snip is available in both left-cut and right-cut models and is tested for wear and durability to meet ASME standard for aviation snips.
