Wiss® Introduces Single Ring Shop Shears

Shears Provide Users With Power and Control

SPARKS, MD--(Marketwired - Apr 19, 2016) -  Wiss, a 168-year-old brand known for durability and performance, today announced the latest addition to the Wiss scissor line: the new Single Ring Shop Shears. The new product provides users the control of traditional ring shears with the power of heavier industrial shears.

The Single Ring Shop shears feature full-length steel blades that extend through the shear handle, providing maximum strength. For extra durability and a longer life, the heavy-duty blades have a titanium coating that is three times harder than steel.

Designed for use where lighter weight shears won't make the cut, blades on the Wiss Single Ring Shop Shears extend through the full length of the handles for utmost force and reliable cutting of heavy materials. Additionally, spring-loaded blades help to reduce fatigue on long and complicated cuts.

"We know that when professional users are cutting heavier materials, they want the control of traditional ring shears with extra leverage and force to cut," said Brendan Walsh, product manager for Wiss. "The Single Ring Shop Shears were designed with this in mind and can easily cut through cardboard, heavy fabrics, rope, leather, and plastics, among many other materials."

The Single Ring Shop Shears have a serrated blade that grips materials for a more even cut. The ergonomic ring design allows for maximum control. The shears also feature a die-cast metal lock that keeps the blades closed when not in use.
