A durable spring action opens these shears after each cut so you're always ready for the next cut. The precision-ground knife edges cut multiple layers of fabric with ease all the way to the points, making them perfect for cutting patterns and trimming seams. The bent handle offers a comfortable working angle, and allows the shears to lie flush with the fabric and cutting surface. A safety latch locks the blades together when the shears are not in use. They feature a durable, double-plated chrome over nickel finish.
