Made from high-quality stainless steel, the Saber Blade was developed in the 1940s. The Saber Blade design gives added strength to the cutting edge and at the same time improves the balance of the shear. The handles have the hand-hammer effect right from forging and a fiber silencer is added to reduce clicking noise. The blades are highly polished and the bottom blade is fully corrugated for non-slip cutting action. Cmon shears are shipped in a nylon storage sheath.
