Straight trimmers are intended for use if you are cutting items held up in the air. Use bent trimmers when cutting material on a table top. The handles are angled up from the plain of the table so that the lower blade rides along the top and the hand is free to work the handles. .
Heritage leads the industry with the most extensive line of straight and bent trimmers. Chrome over nickel plating inside and out, some models with blue enameled handles. All the shears on this page will easily cut felt lining, muslin, cord, rubber, abrasive materials, and multiple layers of fabric.
All models are knife edge unless noted otherwise. Note some marked "LR" have extra large handle rings to accommodate larger hands and allow more cutting power.
