Aviation Snips

section within our Hand Tools department

Aviation snips, sometimes called compound-action snips, are great for cutting aluminum and various thicknesses of sheet metal. Aviation snips were originally created to cut aircraft aluminum, and their simple and efficient design has remained largely unchanged over the years. Since metal is so hard to work with, these snips are designed to specialize in different cutting patterns. Most aviation snips match up to a system of color coded handles so each type of snip is easy to identify; left cutters are red, straight cutters are yellow and right cutters are green.
