These shears efficiently cut materials made from aramid and para-aramid fibers, such as Kevlar®, Dyneema®, Vectran®, Technora®, Spectra®, Dacron and other materials made from fiberglass and carbon fiber which ordinary scissors cannot cut.  Its blades are made of high carbon alloy steel from Japan and are infused with Molybdenum and Vanadium through a proprietary manufacturing process to harden (HRC 60-62, HCV1200) the cutting blades needed for high-tech materials.  The ergonomically designed large grip-ring delivers more power with reduced fatigue and wrist strain.  The grips are designed to fit in the power portion of the hand and produces cleaner cut with less effort.  One blade is micro-serrated to avoid slippage and the other can be sharpened to extend life.  The tang on the blades is long to provide cutting efficiency.

To cut composite-grade materials is a very difficult task.  These 8" shears are meant for clean long cuts into sailcloth, rope, canvas, leather, plastic, silk, cotton, nylon and other knitted fabrics.  The handles are ambidextrous and comfortable.  It is an excellent shear for marine, clothing, electrical, cabling, upholstery, safety, and construction industries.

Sailmakers and riggers around the United States use these shears in their daily projects to cut fabric, thin ropes, sleeves and tapes.
Fabricators who use fiberglass and carbon fiber materials have replaced their current shears in favor of these 8" shears.

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