Humboldt Spear Point Utility Shears

A good set of utility shears are difficult to find these days. Stop getting yelled at for stealing the fabric scissors and use these instead!

Named for the "red devil" squid of the Humboldt current and its fearsome bite, the Humboldt shears are an intimidating, yet nimble, set of forged utility shears for cutting all manner of materials. Featuring a distinctive precision spear point, the Humboldt shears are able to pierce through many materials to start an incision in the body of the target rather than cutting in from its edge. This also makes the tip more precise for careful cuts and turning tight curves.

Based off of heavy-duty shears commonly used in the roofing trade for cutting asphalt shingles, flashing, and other materials that would cause common store-bought scissors to bend apart or break, these shears are a whopping 1/4" thick at the spine for unyielding rigidity, while the ergonomic integral finger loop is generously sized to fit all four fingers for exceptional comfort when making cuts in resistant material.

A hex headed pivot bolt makes tension adjustment a breeze compared to common flathead screw construction. The high carbon steel of these shears has purposely been left un-plated so that they may develop an attractive grey patina with age and use, much like antique pairs. These are truly an heirloom set of shears you can be proud to wield. Made with pride in the USA!

New forever tool!

I was excited to receive these and they didn’t disappoint. Tried them on everything (within reason) and extremely impressed with what these shears can do. Definitely a great addition to my shop and home for the forever toolbox. YouTube video placeholder
Wow, what shears!

These are an incredible pair of shears. Already found a home in my shop, cutting leather, cardboard, opening packages, including those *#%# plastic blister packs, are no problem.
They are heirloom quality.
