Special scissors developed to facilitate cutting of Kevlar fabric. 10″ hand cutting shear with a 4″ blade. Tools for cutting of Kevlar may appear to be prematurely dull due to a buildup of the binder material on the cutting edge. This buildup needs only to be one or two thousands of an inch to impair satisfactory cutting. When this occurs the cutting tool should be cleaned with a solvent that will remove the binder deposit.
