NWS 12" Pelican Tin Snips - Atramentized - Plastic Grip
Great cutting snips even for... plastic laminate

I use plastic laminate quite often to cover furniture and loudspeaker boxes, I like to have a precise cut control as I like to use the laminate roll the most efficient way possible. Anyway I was about to buy specific plastic laminate snips but I found these ones from NWS - I love german tools and products so - the pelican design I figured out would help to vut easier a laminate sheet and I was right, this tool cuts perfectly without splinting, only a slight bending of the snips to the left and feed well the material is needed to get clean cuts. Also I have used it already with metal and the story is the same: great cutting snips.
The feel, finishing and quality of the tool itself is also excellent, good weight, authority when cutting.

The snips have a great quality and finish. Their sheet metal cutting is excellent and have held their edge well.
