Xuron Bead Weaving Scissors Cut Fireline® Easily and Stay Sharp

SACO, ME--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) - Xuron Corporation has introduced an easy to use scissors that is especially designed for cutting Fireline® which, of course, is ideally suited for bead weaving, bead stringing, and bead embellishing.

The Xuron® Model 9180 Shear has cushioned rubber hand grips and a gentle return spring, rather than cumbersome finger loops, and fits comfortably in any size hand. Featuring a cutting edge that remains sharp because of a proprietary grinding technique and a serrated edge to keep the super-strong, slippery fibers in place, this durable scissors is ideal for bead weavers.

Besides being capable of cutting Fireline®, the Xuron® Model 9180 Shear cuts cleanly without fraying and has an open design that can be quickly picked up and manipulated without fumbling. Built to last, this industrial-grade ergonomic scissors is made from precision ground, heat treated carbon steel and employs the proper cutting leverage to minimize squeezing.

The Xuron® Model 9180 Shear sells for $24.50 (sugg. retail). The firm manufactures a complete line of ergonomic cutters and pliers for jewelry making, hobbyists, and crafters. The creator of the jewelry in the accompanying photograph is Connie Birmingham, Bead Weaver, Teacher, and artist.
