These easy-to-hold snippers are a must-have tool to cut apart your metal dies and remove any metal tabs. This durable snipper has a flush-cut design and a fine, sharp point for snipping in tight spaces. By Hero Arts.
Surprisingly the cutter cuts the dies. Unhappily there’s little sharp points left that I will have to remove with a metal file. I have several wire cutters that were either too big or too soft to do the job. I was surprised that these $7 cutters worked..
They make the initial cut ok, but when you try to cut the stubs off it does not work very well. so you are left with little snags that can catch or cut you.
They do the job, but the tips are a little dull and don't cut anything.
Also if you are left handed, be aware these might give you difficulty and you'll have to maneuver them slightly to cut properly in addition to the dull tip.
Thanks for your review Elle! These snips are used to separate our metal deep etch dies -they are perfectly sized to get in between closely placed dies -and to snip them apart! We do not recommend using these as a replacement for scissors or thread snips.
