Dremel has new 4V Max cordless scissors, model HSSC-01, which they describe as a multi-purpose tool that can “cut through almost any material.”
The Dremel HSSC-01 cordless scissors has a built-in battery that recharges in approximately 2-1/2 hours via USB-C.
It features variable speed with 5 settings, and comes with two sets of blades. It does not look like additional blades are available at this time, but maybe they can be ordered via Dremel’s customer service if need-be.
Dremel shows off the cordless scissors cutting through the taped seal of a carboard shipping box. It might be able to handle breaking down thinner cardboard boxes as well.
They also show it being used to cut through multiple layers of plastic clamshell packaging.
It can be used on “household goods,” such as pet food bags.
The cordless cutters are shown off cutting wrapping paper.
Finally, Dremel says the scissors can cut through fabric.
The kit comes with the scissors, 2 sets of blades, a charging cord, and AC adapter.
There are many cordless scissors and multi-cutters on Amazon, most from no-name brands, but it’s nice to see one from Dremel, even if it doesn’t look much different.
This type of tool has been around for a long time, and it seems popular with DIYers and crafters. Craftsman V4 Li-ion cordless scissors came out in late 2011 before quickly being discontinued, and according to Amazon a Black & Decker NiCad model (SZ360) has been around since at least 2003.
Other brands’ cordless battery-powered scissors, such as General Tools’, come with 2 sets of blades as well, but with one for cutting thinner materials and another for cutting thicker materials.
With the Dremel, you get the extra blade set “for those who want to designate one pair of shears for separate cutting duties or use as a spare.” So maybe you can use one set of blades for everyday cutting, and another for tasks where you want minimal contamination, or something like that.
The Dremel’s variable speed dial and USC-C charging seem to set it apart from other models.
