Classic Xuron®: The Orange Handled Snips

In the beading world Xuron® tools are known for their orange handles.  There are two tools in particular, the 410 micro-shear flush cutter® and the 2175 maxi-shear™ flush cutter.  These two have been in the jewelers tool box for sometime now and are highly regarded.

The 410 and the 2175 are really quite different.

The 410 is petite and can cut up to an 18ga soft wire and will cut beading cables like SoftFlex with ease.  This is the perfect tool for a jeweler who loves bead stringing.

The 2175 is a hefty fella’ and is fabulous for cutting larger gauges up to a 12 ga. This is a great “go-to” snip.  The 2175 is perfect for the jeweler who works with a wide range of materials.  This is also a great tool for metalsmiths!

Here is a quick video demoing the two tools, check it out!
