Aviation Snips: Offset – Max2000®
The original Max2000 features Euro-styled ergonomic handles. Textured, solid-colored, molded thermoplastic grips and finger stops compliment a narrower handle opening to fit large or small hands. An ambidextrous, thumb-operated handle latch and replaceable compression spring complete this user-friendly design.
The Max2000 Classic features a wider handle opening and retro styling. Flexible, duo-colored, molded PVC grips and stops, a side-operated handle latch and a torsion-style, piano-wire spring produce the fit and feel of more traditional aviation snip action.
All Max2000 and Max2000 Classic Aviation Snips feature superior hardened blade edges for “maximum” cutting life. Riveted, head-to-handle compound linkage multiplies hand leverage applied by user. Linkage will not rattle or loosen ever! And an easily adjustable pivot bolt, with nylon locking nut, holds its adjustment securely for these hard-working aviation snips.

The greatest cuttersI wish I had bought these a long time ago. Some of us thought that cheap copies were just as good. The operation and clean cutting are amazing. The old ones are now in the scrap bin!

Malco makes pretty much the best sheet metal tools out thereMalco makes pretty much the best sheet metal tools out there and these are no exception. I'm an HVAC tradesman that has used every type of snip on the market and none hold up to these. The lock is easy to access from the normal hand position that you use the snips in. They will also out last any other snip out there and stay sharp. Why pay a few dollars less for a snip that is mediocre in comparison? HUH?
Five StarsBest snips money can buy.

Very NiceVery well made. Heavy and sharp. I cannot tell, but I am guessing the metal is harder than most so I think the blades won't have to be sharpened too often. The handle covers are also very sturdy-I don't expect them to crack or hold stains. I like this. The spring is heavy and the latch is sturdy.
Best snips everHad a pair for 5 years...I cut 22 gauge metal with no problem and they still are sharp. Well worth the money.
