Shop scissors are designated for rougher cutting jobs than the other scissors' intended range. Use them in the workshop where you think it makes sense, but keep in mind we also have snips and diagonal pliers for working with thin metal!

If you use them to cut adhesive tape, please remember to clean them for the next user!
