Irwin offset snips handle virtually every cutting job in sheet metal-linoleum, carpet, tile and other materials. They are easier to use than conventional metal snips, and cut in three directions. Irwin snips feature forged steel blades, a unique curved handle for comfortable fit in the hand, and an exclusive pinchpoint wire cutter. They cut in 3 directions- -straight, sharp angles in one direction, and 5" diameter circles in the opposite direction. Irwin offset snips make difficult cuts easy - they can make tight circular cuts, cut easily through corrugated metal, and cut solid and stranded wire. Available in right or left cutting models.
