The aviation snips from Irwin features ProTouch Grips for added comfort. Serrated blades reduce material slippage (only bottom blade on offsets) and can cut up to 18-gauge cold rolled steel or 23-gauge stainless. Hot drop-forged blades are designed for strength and durability. A high torsion double overwound spring extends tool life. There is a safety latch for one-handed release.
