Glassblowing Diamond Shears from around the Web and the World!

There are many different types of Glassblowing Diamond Shears available off-the-shelf, and a glassblowing student may find that a good pair of jacks is their third investment (after safety glasses and a blowpipe/punty and jacks).

Cutting Edge Products Diamond Shears

by Jeff Lindsay
Big Combo: Price: $235.00
Same great cut and action as the Dante Diamond Shear, but with a larger capacity. It can grab a 1 inch punty and cut a column of glass over 2 inches - no problem. Thicker blade material eliminates flex and dissipates the heat. Holes cut in the blade maintain balance and reduce weight

Dante Diamond: Price: $205
The geometry of this new shear allows for quick opening (even with small hands) and large capacity. These shears are lightweight. We have replaced our Combination Shear with the Dante Diamond!

Small Handle Option is available at no extra charge.

Standard Diamond Shear: $90.00

Description: Not everyone on the planet needs a massive Diamond Shear, so we make it in other sizes. The Standard Diamond Shear is made with full sized hand loops, finger stops and a four inch blade. A very solid, extremely popular tool.

Compact Diamond Shear: $90.00

Description: In response to many customer requests, we started making the Compact Diamond Shear. It has the same blade as the Standard Diamond Shear, but with smaller loops and shorter finger stops. For those with smaller paws, this is a much better fit.

Large Diamond Shear: $95.00

Description: The Big Dog. Designed to chew through big hairy gathers and bits with ferocity and efficiency. The elongated handle keeps the work from boiling your shearing limb. Nicely balanced design and bulletproof construction combine to make a great working tool.

Czech Diamond Shear: $115.00

Description: Czech Shear
