Heavy-duty shears are ideal for cutting fine to heavy fabrics, cording, plastics, rubber, leather, vinyl and tape. Shears are intended for heavier applications, such as upholstery or on production lines where longer cuts and greater strength are needed. The shears have straight, black plastisol handles and polished, nickel-chrome-plated, drop-forged steel blades. One blade is pointed and has a thumb ring on the handle end, and the other is beveled. The cut length is 3". Shears are made using 99.9 percent recycled material with 87 percent post-consumer material.
