Quality Will Tell
In 1848 Jacob Wiss, a Swiss instrument maker ,
opened a modest shop in Bank Street, Newa rk , N. J .
H e began to forge out instruments and a few pairs
of shea rs- a trade he had learned thorough ly in
Europe. He worked slowly and with infinite care,
and present ly people began to say Wiss Shears were
the best they had ever used.
T here was good reason for this approbat ion , fo r Wiss
Shears were so well made t hat , after mo re t han 50
years of serv ice, some of the first pa irs eve r produced
are sti ll in service.
Slowly the Wiss enterprise grew; and in 1887, a sma ll
part of the present factory was built. It was devoted
exclus ively to the manufacture of fine shears and scissors, and soon it was crowded to capaci ty.
To-day the factories of]. Wiss & Sons Company are
the largest of their kind in the world- and one of the
pri ncipal reasons for their prodigious growth is a firm
adherence to the pol icy of J acob Wiss to produce
nothing but goods of t he highest quality.

How \Vrss
SHEARS ARE MADE
O the average man or woman , one pa ir of shears is very
much like a nother. As a matter of fact , there is a vast
d ifference between Wiss Shea rs and t hose of inferior
make; and we beli eve it is worth while to brieAy descri be our
more important operat ions. I f the dea ler is acqua inted with
these points , he can eas ily satisfy his customers of t he superior
qua li ty of Wiss Shears; and also see fo r himself why t his qua li ty
m eans a better investment. We recommend t ha t both dea lers
and their clerks fa mil iarize t hemselves with these deta ils, as
t hey will be found of great assistance in selling cutlery.

FoRC ING THE
FRAME
Th e frame of Wiss
Shears is forged from a
very tough special forging steel under a powerfu l
drop-hammer. This steel
is used because it renders
the frame practica lly unbreakable, and because its
toughness and pliability
in t he initial stages of
manufacture permit the
permanent adjustment
so necessary to smooth
cutting blades.
It also makes it possible
to mou ld the handles to exactly the correct shape. You
can hammer , bend, and t wist
the handles of Wiss Shears
and still not break them .
\Veld in g the ha rd c utti ng edge
to the tough rrame
As a result of this process ,
we produce shears that will
stand up unde.r severe st ra ins
for yea rs- with handles properly fitted to the hand- and
blades so accurately adjusted
that they cut the goods without gnawing and with t he
least possible effort.
H a rd en ing the
Wiss Shea r Blade
W ELDING THE C UTTI NG
EDGE
After t he frame has been
forged, a piece of the fi nest
crucible steel is welded to t he
inner side of the blade. This
forms the cutting edge, and

it takes a very hard degree of

This operation is so accu rate ly
regulated t hat the blades of a ll
Wiss Shears are of u n iform temper or hardness .
This is of great importa nce, for
whenever there is even a slight
d ifference in temper, the harder
blade will wear into the softer
one, greatly shortening the Jife of
the shears, and no amount of
grinding or sharpen ing can ever
remedy this condition.
It is largely because of t heir

THE FINISHING
I
ToucHEs- Continued
Expert finishers take each one and adjust the blades so
that they come together in a perfectly straight line with
an even tension . The cutting qualities are then thoroughly tested to make sure that the finishing has been
done properly .
The shears are now ready for their final inspection. They
are gone over carefully, and should any defects be discovered, that pai r is promptl y d iscarded, for no shears
that are imperfect are ever branded "WISS" .

WISS CANTILEVER SPRING
The Wiss Cantilever Spring is an improved attachment which
exerts a constant even tension on the blades from heel to
points at all times , keeping the cutting edges close together,
and adds considerably to the cutting ability.
It has been found particu la rly successful when cutting fine texture fabrics like rayon silk.
1t is furnished at slight extra cost on certain sizes of large
trimmers. (See pages 14 and 17.)
W rss SIMPLEX SHEAR BoLT
The Wiss Simplex Bolt was designed so as to readily allow
tailors· shears to be taken apart to remove lint and dust which
collects under the bolt. It has only two parts and is quickly
and correctly assemb led. There are no levers or springs, and
a turn of the small adjusting screw in the nut gives exactly
the required tension. The Wiss Simplex Bolt is furnished with
Wiss "N" pattern Tailors· Shears when so ordered , without
extra charge.

Wrss B ARBERs' SHEARS
The success of the barber using W iss
Barbers ' Shears is lim ited only by his own
skill. From the t ime they are forged of
finest crucible steel until their fina l inspect ion, none but expert hands touch them.
Wiss Barbers' Shears are ground to t he
sharpest possible edge; are scientifically
tempered to insure long life and so cleve rly
adjusted that they cut just as we ll at the
extreme points as at the base of t he blades .
In finish and design they reftect their fine
qua lity. No barbers' shea rs ca n be better .

W iss Tinners ' Snips may be tested to cut 20d wire nails without m arring t he edges, and t hen cut clean t he lightest of t issue
paper. This test shows t he fi ne adj ustment of the Wiss Sn ip,
its strength and toughness, and its wonderful keen edge.
Wiss Sn ips are superior in qua lity and construction- in shape ,
in cutting edge, in strength , in t ests, and in fi nish.
A piece of t he finest C ruc ible Bar Steel welded to t he inner side
of their blades gives W iss T inners' Sni ps a perfect, last ing
cutting edge- an edge t hat will not break or chew t he work ,
and which remains sharp an extra long t ime. The severe factory tests to which we subject our Snips enable us to unrest ricted ly guarantee every pa ir to do its work competently.

WJSS PRUNING SHEARS
Wiss pruning shears number II 0-V or 11 0-B will snip
a broom handle. This gives you an idea of their remarkable strength . They will outlast a dozen pruners
of ordinary qua li ty . N urserymen and growers of fine
trees prefer them because they cut clean, through the
t hickest twigs or the most delicate tendrils without
tearing. All Wiss pruning shears (except 209-V) are
made entirely of forged steel with hardened cutlery
steel blades. All parts are milled and interchangeable.
The blade is fitted to the handle in a unique mann er,
securing perfect rigidity and ease of replacement in
case of wear or breakage.
Every pair guaranteed perfect in workmanship and
material.
Furnished with castellated nut and catch to retain
close adjustment.
