My friends and mentors, Linda and Opie O'Brien of Burnt Offerings Studio, gave me my first pair of metal shears---this VERY style.  Of all the shears they'd tried out, these were their favorites for detail cutting.  They cut tin, copper,  silver up to .020  as if it was butter!  For brass, we've found here that it cuts 24 ga and up very nicely.    You'll need something more for anything over 20 gauge, but much of B'sue Boutiques' brass is 24-26 ga, so these will be perfect!  (NOTE:  Gilding weight brass is heavier, and the shears will not be adequate for anything that is gilding weight.  Just shoot me a quick email if you have questions about use with brass!)   Linda and Opie used these very shears in all their many classes over the years, and they are featured in their book, METAL DISCOVERY WORKSHOP.   Great rubber grip, makes cutting a dream.   You'll thank Linda and Opie when you purchase a pair and start working with them!  I think of them *every* time I use mine!

5 of 5 Fabulous January 21, 2016
Reviewer: Shari Gardner from Sterling Heights, MI United States  
These are the best metal shears I have ever used. Like others have said, cuts like a regular pair of scissors cut paper.  You can't go wrong with these, except for maybe keeping them with your tools and having to go find them because your husband borrowed them. Might have to get him a pair of his

5 of 5 Great Shears October 19, 2015
Reviewer: Marilyn Prince from San Francisco, CA United States  
I love these metal shears! I have a pair already, and I've ordered another. They are so much easier to use than other metal shears I own. They cut through metal like scissors cut through paper, and they don't strain your hands or stick. I haven't found this great tool anywhere else. Thanks for stocking these Brenda Sue!

5 of 5 The BEST Shears EVER! October 16, 2015
Reviewer: Tammie Everly from Chesapeake, VA United States  
I bought these to do metal cutting for my repurposed tin work. They are nothing short of amazing! They cut through tin and metal stampings like butter- I can't say enough good things about them. The are the workhorse of my studio bench!
