Default are there any good snips manufactures left?

Hi, I work mostly with 16oz,20oz copper and 30mil aluminum,,,

I used to buy old wiss snips,that were pretty good,but I stopped using them about 10 years ago. Quality was just getting worse.

Since then i tried: klenk,klein,bostich,irvin,malco, but all off them have some problems,,,,,don't stay sharp too long,,,screw needs to be tighten way too often,,,etc


What manufacturer do you like??? I use mostly offset

Thanks,

I've been using Midwest reds and greens. Seem to be almost as good as the old Klenks. Bought a pair of Lennox ,IMO they were at waste of money, can't trim less than a half inch or so from edge, don't like to cut at tip, etc. Would like to find someone to sharpen my old Klenks and Wiss Shears. John
