Green Handle or Right Cut New shorter handles with softer grip on upper handle gives you ergonomic comfort, reducing hand fatigue. Thicker alloy steel blades increase strength and add durability. Unique flat blade design makes this the easiest turning snip available. Improved forming process produces stress-free blades that resist breakage. Improved heat-treating process produces blades that are tougher and more wear-resistant. Precision-ground tips meet together evenly to prevent fishhooks, burrs, and tearing at the end of each cut. Cutting capacity: 18 ga. CR - 22 ga. SS (not recommended for use on seams).
