Malco Max2000 Aviation Snips now feature all-new, molded thermoplastic grips. These easy-to-spot, solid color coded grips are permanently fitted over full length steel handle shafts and offer strength, comfort and sure handling. A narrower grip opening accommodates large or small hands to maximize the powerful leverage of compound handle-to-head linkage. A new ambidextrous, one-hand-operation latch is another welcome handle change to all Max2000 snips and features an ingenious all-metal design that will not loosen or hang up with repetitive use. Original Max2000 blade designs remain unchanged and retain the same generous cutting lengths. Max2000 hardened alloy steel blades with precision ground cutting edges ensure a minimal force cut and maximum service life. Sleek head and handle styling offer superior material flow and maximum maneuverability.
