XBow Series Q&A
When will these be available?
We are officially debuting this new line at BeadFest/Philadelphia.
What does XBow mean?
XBow is short for crossbow, the crossbow being a symbol of Switzerland representing strength, precision and innovation.
How is the XBow series different from Xuron’s made in the USA cutters and pliers?
The major difference is in the type of steel and the method by which they are manufactured. The fine details of this are limited because the information is propriety, however there are also differences in the aesthetic, the hand grip, the spring style and the applications.
The cutters are further differentiated by the type of cut they offer. XBow series cutters are compression cutters and Xuron’s USA made cutters are Micro-Shear® Flush Cutters, meaning they cut by shearing as opposed to compression.
Why offer another line of cutters and pliers?
Because jewelers like options!
Can the XBow Series cutters be resharpened?
Yes, they can. We have made arrangements with a qualified re-sharpening service and can provide details as necessary.
