Glass artist extraordinaire Dante Marioni had a favorite pair of shears so cracked, corroded and welded-over we called them “Frankenshears.” When they finally gave out, h+D12e called Jeff and together they worked up a design that met Dante’s needs. These are those shears-like Dante’s old favorites, but with improvements. Quick to open, and high capacity; they’re light in weight with a shear geometry that’s especially good for small hands. These are by far our most popular shears, great for everyone from beginning students to seasoned pros like Dante.
Jeff Lindsay crafts his precision tools to exacting standards using the highest quality metals. His pipes are crafted from 316 Stainless Steel and aircraft quality Chrome-moly 4130 with 309 Stainless Steel heads. His shears are crafted from hardened D2 rust and wear resistant steel. All blades are cut using CNC water jet technology and then mill beveled, tempered and finished with a doubled bevel at the cutting edge. All this results in a superb edge that stays sharp.
