Item details

This is a vintage pair of tin snips used to...snip tin!
Steel forged, made in USA circa 1930s
They seem to be for right hand use; they wouldn't cut when I tried using them left handed.
The intials R.C. are engraved on one side
These were made to last and still work!
A nice find for artists who work with metal
Measures 7.5"/19cm from blade tips to end of handle
These snips would also look cool as a display piece in a man cave or tool shed!
Patina and a bit of rust
Caveat: blades haven't been sharpened by me but take care when handling, and keep out of reach of children.
Please convo me for any questions; I ship worldwide!
