My Review for Andy Aluminum Handled Snips 12″

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.



My fiancé got these for work few years ago and we ended up getting another set as they are awesome. First pair still works awesome and haven’t even opened second set yet! Long lasting and used for everyday construction. Cheapest was on here as well.
