This rustic, one-piece snip is made of forged black steel and now comes with a natural, vegetable-tanned leather point protector to keep both you and the snip protected while not in use. 4" in length.
Forged iron snips are an ancient concept – you may have seen larger ones once used for sheep shearing. These Cocoknits snips are the same concept, but in a much smaller scale. So many snips have razor-sharp blades with plastic handles, a no-go for us. These are rustically forged from one piece of steel so they will never break. They are slim, don’t require you to unfold or get your fingers through openings, and are approved for TSA travel through security (a blade less than 3" long).
Please note these are snips, not scissors, and they are imperfectly hand-forged. They have a nice heft in the hand, and the good news is that no one is going to borrow them from your knitting kit – they are really only good for snipping yarn!
