Most die sets come tabbed and you need die snips to cut them apart. The Kat Scrappiness die snips (also known as side snips) are flat on the back edge, allowing you to get right up against the edge of the die to cut as close as possible. They are super sharp and come with a special tube end for protection.
This is a very sharp tool and should not be used by children or left near them. The metal die snips come with a plastic cover that you may want to keep on the snips in order to protect yourself and others. You should always wear protective eye wear when using these or any die snips to avoid injury.
