Metal shears are suitable for use on metal only and function in a way that is similar to a pair of scissors. The tool has two planes which meet to slice the metal, resulting in very little material wastage and a relatively clean cut, however there is some distortion. See the image on the right for an illustration.
Universal shears are a little different. They use a slightly rounded blade and can cut many different materials apart from metal, including carpet and PVC. See the image on the bottom right for an illustration.
