The KAI 7170 6 2/3" Professional Series scissor is an all-around, powerful cutting tool. The blade is made of a high-carbon stainless steel that ensures a sharp cut, all-the-way to the tip. It also features handles made of "Elastomer", a soft plastic, which are designed for better leverage and ease of handling while cutting.
Additionally, the 7170, like the 7150, is an ideal size for tasks such as general trimming, cut-work, or any task where larger shears would be too bulky, but cutting power is still desired and necessary.
The 7000 series scissors, including the 7170, are made of a high carbon, hardened stainless steel. The addition of carbon allows for a steeper cutting angle, giving the scissor a sharper, finer edge. The carbon also allows the finer edge to be more durable, which in-turn, extends the cutting life of these professional scissors.
