World's best textile shears

They'll cut anything with ease, including Kevlar and carbon fiber.

Can your shears do that?

Didn't think so.

From the website:

ARS SS-526H Textile Shears are known as the "Kevlar Eater."

These shears are made of Super High Speed Steel, a very hard alloy specifically developed for cutting dense fiber which is too hard to cut with conventional scissors.

ARS's unique "micro-edge" treatment produces microscopic waves on the edge of the blades to secure the material firmly at the shearing point.

The blade is deliberately curved to be able to hold material firmly and cut it efficiently from the fulcrum to the tip.

The dial nut is adjustable to vary torque as needed.

The 526H was designed specifically for aramid base fabrics, such as Kevlar.

They have excellent durability, more than 100 times that of ordinary steel shears.

Since 1876 ARS has been a leader in cutting tools.

This represents the pinnacle of their work.

Made in Japan.
