The company’s Model M1200 Replaceable Blade Snip uses magnesium alloy for great strength and low weight. The M1200 has a length of 12 inches and features a 3 1/2-inch length of cut. Complete with its carbon steel blades it weighs 13.4 ounces—half the weight of the standard 12-inch forged tinner snip. The carbon steel replaceable blades of the M1200 feature a hollow ground edge for strong cutting performance. It can cut sheet materials including sheet metals, asphalt shingles, vinyl, screening, cardboard and others.
