Sometimes we can’t improve on the original and we think this classic thread snip from the old days is really the best. For a while we have sold the thread snips because they come with a carrying case, but they just don’t snip like these clippers...it’s like night and day! Made in Taiwan, they are spring loaded to cut accurately and easily. Be sure to keep away from moisture. They are intended to cut thread, not leather, wire, Fireline, or Soft Flex.
