These Ceramic EOD Scissors are not your typical ceramics scissors that have the blades break off if you drop them more than 2 inches.
These blades are solid and serrated!
I sat around with the Nashville Bomb Squad and cut up a bunch of 18 gauge solid copper wire with no problem. I could probably trim the hedges with these!
NOTE: We were notified that an EOD team noticed a spark while cutting a wire. We were able to reproduce this effect with ours and other ceramic scissors used throughout the community. This information is in the process of being passed up to TECHDIV by the discovering EOD Team. We still don't know if it's a combination of factors such as humidity, or lack of, insulation, metal composition, etc. We're asking everyone to be aware of this and to adjust accordingly.
That's right these blades are serrated giving you the extra bite and confidence when cutting a circuit.
The serrations make it easier to cut through the insulation and the increased surface area of the blade makes it easier to cut through thicker wire, cordura and even kevlar strands. DuPont uses these scissors in their factory!
Well, why not. We were able to source these at a better price than the scissors with the blades that can fall off so we're passing the savings on to you. We actually did think about raising the price to about $30 but we'd rather be reasonably priced and disrupt the industry. We know budgets are tight and every dollar matters.
Not sure how you made it down this far but here's some more info:
The brass screw is not for maintenance. It has a healthy dose of locktite so please don't unscrew it. You shouldn't need to anyway. These are very solid.
If these scissors break due to dropping or any other non-RSP related reason, let us know. Send us a picture so we can see what happened and see if we can adjust to make them better. We'll send you another set.
Get a handful for yourself and your team.
