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!
