The Clauss 9" Ultraflex Bent Shear features durable, titanium bonded blades that are 3x harder than stainless steel so they can hold their edge across countless cuts. This same bonding process affords exceptional corrosion and adhesive resistance as well, further enhancing the longevity of the blades so they can continue to deliver elite cutting performance. This heavy-duty shear also features oversized blades with knife edges, allowing for greatly increased cutting power to supplement the incredible durability the blades already possess. Including comfortable, Ultraflex handles with extra large finger bows and adjustable tension as well, even the toughest materials can be cut with speed and precision. For shorter cuts, the Ultraflex Bent Shear is also available in 8", see item #18081.
