Pattern Shears for Copper Foil Work

Our highest quality pattern shears made for the copper foil technique. Made by Fan Out, a Japanese company known for superior quality tools, these foil shears feature stainless steel blades and contoured handles. The three-bladed scissors cut a 1/32" space between your pattern templates allowing for the thickness of the copper foil. The blades cut stiff paper such as oak tag without crimping the edges of the pattern pieces.
