$24.99 at Sears [sears.com]. Regular price is $37.98 on Amazon [amazon.com] (lowest is $29 according Camelcamelcamel). I had $8 in surprise points, so they ended up $16.99, YMMV.

These not cheap but quality snips well worth the price, IMO. Experts on garagejournal did a great video review comparing various snips [garagejournal.com].

Midwest snips are made in the USA and considered better than Wiss or Lennox sold at Home Depot & Lowes, respectively.
  • Two piece offset aviation set include both left and right cut models.
  • Blades are hot drop-forged of molybdenum alloy steel and temper heat-treated.
  • Cut Length: 1-1/4"
  • Offset blades also mean that your hands are always at a safe distance away from the material being cut.
  • A narrower opening grip makes it easier to operate

It's in the description but so everyone sees it, these are right and left cut specific. The handle color is specific to the direction cutting, Google it. Yellow is the straight line cut. Just a heads up in case there are this who didn't know this.

Great heads up! I know a decent little bit about tools, and that was new to me. Thank you.

Not everyone gets the surprise points so I'd recommend changing the title to show the full amount of $24.99.

Also the term Aviation is giving to them because they are the first thing thrown at a co-worker. .

Fixed. Thanks. I got surprise points $5 - $8 almost every week by email. I just assume everyone would, too. YMMV.

Yes, and either the green or red can be used to cut straight if you want. Many sets are sold with red, green, and yellow. So this is a nice set, maybe letting you get higher quality with two snips instead of 3.

Also, even if you never cut sheetmetal, you will likely find many uses for snips. Think of them as incredibly powerful scissors. I keep them in my tool drawer right next to the scissors and utility knives. Yesterday when I opened my new floor jack, with the plastic wrap things holding the box sealed tight, I reached for my snips rather than scissors or a knife.

Opening standard clamshell plastic packaging - these are the best and safest tools for that job.
