Klein Tools’ Upright Snips cut straight, curves, and tight circles in 24-gauge cold rolled steel and 28-gauge stainless steel. This tool makes cutting easier in confined spaces (in ductwork, reaching through openings or against a wall). Soft touch aviation grips provide maximum control and comfort. The blades are made of long-lasting serrated forged steel for superior strength and durability. Tip-Ident on the handles and color-coding allow for easy identification of the cutting pattern.
