One of our finest thread snips, the Clauss 4.5" Round Pointed Thread Snip is hot forged and fully double-plated with chrome over nickel. The durability and strength afforded by its robust 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 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 4.5" Round Pointed Thread Snip will endure across hundreds of uses and deliver elite performance every time. In the event the blades finally run dull, they can easily be re-sharpened to continue to provide outstanding cutting performance.
