Ascend Tools' heavy duty re-sharpenable big-bow utility shears cut heavy duty materials, and provide clean trims for items ranging from sailcloth, fiberglass, carbon fiber, rope (poly or nylon), canvas and leather to breather fabric, plastic, nylon, upholstery, craft materials, plastic, floral, soft wire and more. They feature long ultra-sharp blades ideal for cutting long swathers even through multiple layers of thick and heavy fabrics.
These shears are lightweight and have comfortable grip handles. It's blades are made of high carbon alloy steel from Japan and infused with Molybdenum and Vanadium through a proprietary manufacturing process to harden the cutting blades (HRC 50-54) needed to cut high-strength materials. The ergonomically designed large grip-ring delivers more power with reduced fatigue and wrist strain, especially in repetitive cutting jobs. The grips are designed ergonomically to easily fit in the power portion of the hand to produce cleaner cut with less effort. The larger loops allow fitting of large or gloved hands. 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. The bolted joint provides control over cutting different types of materials.
Fabricators who use fiberglass and carbon fiber materials have replaced their current shears in favor of these premium quality shears. The choice of two sizes, 11/3/8" and 9-3/4", allow their use across breadth of applications.
- Thick / layered fabric (fiber weaves included)
