The Hornet, a 4 pound (1.8 kg) rechargeable shear, boasts a powerful, high torque motor with variable speed settings of 10,000 RPM, 17,500 RPM and 25,000 RPM.

Standard to the tool is a semi-square blade, with maximum blade speed of 8,400 RPM and cutting capacity of up to 0.38 in (0.96 cm) thick material. Other blade options include a circular blade, perfect for tighter-knit material, or an octagon blade, ideal for tough-to-cut material as its unique shape offers high cutting power.

The Hornet comes equipped with two 20V (4ah) lithium-ion batteries with a recharge time of one hour per battery. Optional features include a ball tip, to guide open material without snagging, a pelican head, to scoop lofted goods through the blade, or a pressure foot, to support material on both sides of the blade during the cutting process. Each option plays a specific role so the user can completely customize their machine and cut anything from prepreg carbon to silk without binding or tearing. No matter the industry, if cutting material by hand is a part of daily operation, the Hornet will become a staple in operators toolbox.
