Very high amounts of Carbon and Vanadium that makes it the best blade Steel...I mean compared to a pair of pressed steel nippers or nail clippers I don’t see how a pair of machined and anodised nippers with S30V crucible steel jaws aren’t over engineered? Mine have remained sharp for nearly a decade now.
S30V holds a good edge which is why it’s used for premium knives a lot.
I bought a pair of black high carbon fly scissors off him way back and they're still as good and sharp as when I bought them.I really rate the ones Mick Bloke Bell was selling way back tiny but very very good cutting .kept on a lanyard they have done well for a decade or so
I have those as well ,nottoo shabby!I bought a pair of black high carbon fly scissors off him way back and they're still as good and sharp as when I bought them.
Although I bought some iris scissors so I didn't mistreat his and they're still as good as gold, @ nearly 4 quid they ought t be good
The abel nippers are £85. I find it nigh on impossible to justify spending that.
