Rated 1 out of 5 by from dissapointed Purchased these having read the 4 reviews that raved about them. Wanted to cut a small sheet of 2mm steel but may as well not bothered. These tin snips would not touch it. May as well have bought a cheap pair of scissors for what use they are. Don't really want the hassle of returning them, but are of no use to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reassuringly Solid A good, solid, no-nonsense tool. No frills or gimmicks and produces a clean cut with little effort, due to the length of the handles from the pivot. My Dad had a pair and they saw 40 years of service, even if the paint was starting to wear thin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp The last time I used a pair of these was in metal work 40 years ago. That pair was used and abused and didn't impress. This pair were a LOT sharper than I expected, closed with a satisfying slicing sound and cut through 2mm aluminium like it was cardboard. A pleasure to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gilbows are the best Gilbows have been the brand leader on snips for generations. They will give years of service. Do not scrimp to save a fiver to buy an inferior product. These will become a friend for life.
