The Clauss 5” Lightweight Thread Snip is purpose built for functionality with stainless steel, extra sharp point blades and plastic casing. The durability afforded by its construction makes it a must-have tool of the trade for sewers and quilters alike, but it also makes it very handy for quick while-you-work cuts. The Lightweight Thread Snip is ideal for clipping threads or other light cutting operations. Complete with ball-bearing construction, quick action spring return, precision ground blades, and a thumb rest, the 5” Lightweight Thread Snip will endure across hundreds of uses and deliver great performance every time. In the event the blades run dull, they can easily be re-sharpened to continue to provide outstanding cutting performance.
