Clauss has developed an entirely new, ergonomic snip for electricians and installers. Extensive field testing has resulted in wide acclaim for the innovative new (patent pending) snips. The Model No. 925CS-ERGO features one blade with an ergonomically shaped cushioned palm rest. The other blade has the traditional ring bow. The results are that the tool evenly distributes more leverage than "ordinary" snips, while placing less pressure on the user's hand. Other features include one serrated blade to prevent wire from sliding during cutting, stripping notches for 19 ga. and 23 ga. wire, a scraper and file on top of the blades and a comfortable cushion grip. The blades are high-quality, precision ground, cutlery grade carbon steel, double-plated with chrome over nickel for extra protection against stains and rust, a Clauss hallmark.
