I've known people who will only use Wiss. Never used Midwest myself but prefer Klenk because the blade is longer; I like the cut better. I do think that the quality of all has suffered over the last 20 years.

Midwest is the same as Craftsman - the Craftsman snips come with lifetime warranty but not the Midwest. At one time when Craftsman was discontinuing The so called Craftsman brand snips I traded in one of my broken snips and they replaced it with a Midwest.

Personally, I prefer the Craftsman Snips because I used them for years and was long lasting snips. I still have them.

I do have Wiss (duckbill) and Klenk and also Malco
