General purpose shears are powerful hand tools perfect for cutting through a range of materials such as metal, wood, plastic, cardboard and more. The three most common types of cutters available are straight, left and right. The direction does not refer to which hand they are best suited to, but to what side the waste material will be on. For example, straight snips allow you to cut through metal in a straight line to the length of the blade, whereas left allows you to cut straight or curved with the waste material to the left and right snips to the right.
