Customer reviewsPerfect for precious metals and soft base metals
Perfect for precious metals and soft base metals, which I use in my studio. Sturdy. No wear can be seen on the blades after cutting a bunch of 16g Nickel Silver, which is the hardest stuff I cut, even harder than brass. I recommend this for any small metalsmithing studio.
