The Penny Cutters
These are the so-called miracle shears. They were designed for use by paramedics and others needing quickly to cut wire, light sheet metal, or other tough stuff that might stand between them and their quarry. They are normally demonstrated cutting a penny in two. Which they will do. But not as a steady diet. Let's dispel a few myths. While these are Pakistani stainless, we're not talking any miracles in manufacturing. They are good for their purpose, and real handy to have in the old tool box. But their purpose isn't making pennies into 5-mil pieces, and you will twist or break them at about the same time you find out that you've done the same thing to U.S. laws! For sheet metal or wire or fishing leaders or tin cans or whatever, be our guests.

Diamonds In Your Pocket
Life will never be dull again if you carry this pocket-sized diamond knife and scissors sharpener. Comes with (3) 2" long diamond encrusted rods, (2) fine and (1) coarse. The 1-15/16" x 2-3/8" x 5/8" holder is also a frame with slots that hold the rods at the correct blade-sharpening angle. Even though it's made as a pocket tool, with a short keychain, it would abrade its way right out of any pocket. We recommend you just hang it above your workbench.
$2.95 EACH
