Crescent Wiss Next Generation Aviation Snips

We make ‘em just like we used to… only better.


Wiss compound action “aviation snips,” like these from the late 1940s, were a key tool for cutting aircraft sheet metal during WWII and became best sellers after the war ended.


By the 1990s, Wiss aviation snips featured their iconic yellow, red, and green comfort grips, improved blades, a stronger spring, and new pivot geometry.


The latest Crescent Wiss Next Generation snips stay true to form with new ergonomic features and the best performing, longest lasting blades we’ve ever made.

Next Generation Aviation Snips Snips made to earn the trust of a new generation. Continuous improvement means never being satisfied. That’s why these new Next Generation snips last 60% longer and require 20% less force to cut on average compared to our snips from just five years ago. And that’s why Crescent Wiss is the undisputed leading brand of snips for sheet metal professionals.
