Cutting Edge Big Diamond Shear (a.k.a. Big Combo Shear)

1 Review
SKU: C021


Our Big Diamond Shear has the same great cut and quick action as our Dante Diamond, but with more capacity. With the Big Diamond you can easily grab a one inch blowpipe or cut a two inch column of glass.

They have thicker blades that won’t flex. Because Jeff incorporated slots into their profile, they’re lighter. But it’s okay if you like our Big Diamonds just because they look really cool!

Cutting Edge Tools - A Cut above The Rest

Our shears look different because they are different.
It’s all in the details and Jeff Lindsay is serious about the details.

Our Special Blades Are Cut With Water
It took a lot of research and experimentation. This is how Jeff chose D2 steel as the material for his shear blades. D2 steel is rust-resistant, wear-resistant and hard to the thinnest edge. D2 is so hard that our blades are cut with a computer numerical control (CNC) water jet machine.

On The Edge
After we have beveled our blades on a mill, we heat treat them to their final hardness. Lastly, we hand grind a double-bevel along the cutting edge. This hand work takes time and requires real skill, but it produces a superbly sharp edge.

Oh, Those Beautiful Welds!
We fix handles to blades with a generous bead of silicon bronze. Lovely to look at and practical, our handles simply do not break! Oh, and note the no-snag, stainless button head cap screw and the ever-tight nut.

very nice tool

by -

first, don't get them wet, they flash rust very quickly. if you live in humid climate, cover them with a towel and store them in the tool box. i got these without much experience with diamond shears as a "solution to all" and really they aren't the solution. These are intended for LARGE tube and cuts and for pulling tube from a crucible. They are heavy, and for that reason don't really work well for basic cuts. Really handy but if you are deciding on the pair to buy i would suggest the smaller pair. I will most likely trade mine off for a smaller pair until i have a crucible to work from. Sturdy, doesn't dull hardly at all with heavy use. But they are heavy.
