My 50 year old Wiss has no serrations but the 2 Snap-On on the left do have and I suspect Wiss make them for Snap-On.

Any WISS or other quality snips I have seen had the manufacturer's name or trademark on them. No name or mark says they are copies to me. JMHO

The serrations are a feature of the WISS brand , I spelled it incorrectly in the first post .
I have nine or ten pairs I have collected over the years , they seem to last forever as long as you lubricate the edges every now and again .



The Portuguese have made imitations of them for sometime now . There is nothing to show that they are not as good if not a little better than the originals .

I've been doing, part time, home heating business since '83. I also do sheet metal fabrication.
I have many different makes and types of snips.

Are any of yours stainless steel ? I thought that was odd and what sold me on them .Also when they close tiny serrations at the edge of the shear mesh together perfectly, little fine teeth .

I have a couple pair in a toolbox.

Can't recall ever looking for a brand name.

Wyss snips or at least fairly accurate copies . The best available of the so called aviation snips here in Australia .
The tool of choice for any plumber .

The handles are usually color coded , red for right hand cuts , green for left , yellow for straight and blue for stainless steel or other tough metals .
