Swappable Blades Let These Snips Cut Through Almost Anything

By Andrew Liszewski on at

When you're working near your toolbox, keeping an assortment of snips within easy reach for various tasks is a great way to stay productive. But when you're working somewhere your toolbox can't go, like at the top of a ladder, Crescent's new Switchblade snips are a better option letting you carry a single handle with swappable cutting heads for multiple tasks.

Swappable Blades Let These Snips Cut Through Almost Anything

For £35.12 (with delivery to the the UK) you actually get four tools in one with the Switchblade. A standard multi-purpose blade that can hack through cardboard, rope, shingles, vinyl, and plastics. A straight blade for cutting ductwork, aluminium siding, and other sheet metal. A cable cutter for trimming and stripping wires, and finally a plier head for all of your non-cutting needs.

Swapping the heads is as easy as popping a couple of quick release bolts that hold each blade securely in place, and the set even comes with a belt holster so you're always at the ready for some quick-draw trimming. [Amazon via Werd]
