How nice and handy is this little tool? I love it! Another restoration project to take back to life and into work this metal shear. This metal shear is made by Ficep, the same brand as my other rebar shear I restored a while back. Ficep is an Italian company founded in October 1930 by the Colombo and the Giuliani families in Gazzada As “Fabbrica Italiana Cesoie e Punzonatrici” – Italian Shears and Punching Machines Factory.” Still the casting is marked as “acier forgé” that means “forged steel” in french.
