Wiss 22 shears
« on: June 03, 2016, 07:45:24 AM »
A colleague of mine brought me a pair of Wiss 22 shears. They belonged to a woman she knows who is retiring and wants to sell them.
I will post a picture tomorrow, they look in pretty good shape, and have not been used very much so she says.  If anyone is interested you can let me know what kind of price you would be willing to pay for them.

You buy a new pair in the US for a bit over $40.00 USD so I would not offer more than about 20 - 25 USD for them. A pair of Wiss 22 are OK and work well but if you have the choice get the 22w version that has the raised blade, they are stronger.

Oh dear, I just posted up mine that I bought a couple of days ago.  I felt very luck to grab them for $13.00.
