These scissors are ideal for use on small cutting surfaces such as rope, tape, ribbon, thread and cable made from aramid and para-aramid fibers such as Kevlar®, Dyneema®, Vectran®, Technora®, Dacron® and other materials made from fiberglass and carbon fiber.  Its blades are made of high carbon alloy steel from Japan and are infused with Molybdenum and Vanadium (HRC 60~62) through a proprietary manufacturing process to achieve a level of hardness (HV1200) to cut high tech material.  It can also be used to cut materials made from carbon fiber, glass fiber, plastic, canvas, vinyl, leather, suede, leatherette, nylon, silk, cotton, for upholstery, headliner, string or other knitted forms.

To cut composite-grade materials is a very difficult task.  These 6-1/4" shears are meant for precise and clean cuts into the material.  They can be used to make relief cuts during the lay-up process so reinforcements precisely fit in the mold.  Or cut stubborn threads hanging off the edge of fabric.  Or make small cuts for intricate parts.  The cutting performance is great across the length of the blade; in fact, the blades cut all the way to the tips for quick and accurate trimming.  They can also be used to make relief cuts during the lay-up process to fit the reinforcement into the mold.  Cut hanging fibers along the cutting edge of the fabric cleanly.  Cut fiber thread off the fiber optic cable neatly when installing connectors.

Special Features:
  • Plier like form factor for high leverage during cuts

  • Sharp pointed nose to enter tight areas for cutting padding and insulation

  • Micro-serrated blade to grip material for non-slip cut

  • Aviation (fiberglass, carbon fiber and shaping prepregs)

  • Avionics (fiber cable, Kevlar shields and thread)

  • Security (helmets, body armor, ballistic fabric, panels, gloves, jackets)

Great Kevlar and Dyneema cutter
I tested this by cutting Kevlar thread with scissors, side cutter. I also cut Dyneema. This is the only one that cut the Kevlar - Dyneema clean.

Great avionics tool
Great tool to cut Kevlar padding in very tight spaces. It's plier like construction maximizes the leverage on the cutting blades. As the specs say the blades are specially designed to cut Kevlar and it does the job. I am happy with how the project turned out.

Great for small cuts
I sew shoes with Kevlar. My scissors don't last very long. In fact, they get kind of dinged after a while. I have been using these for two months and still feel like new.
