Guillotines have a top and bottom blade and this process is very similar to cutting a piece of paper with scissors. Guillotines use blades made of high-carbon steel, which is extremely hard and allows the shear to cut through a variety of metals. Guillotining is a standard service offered by Metal Supermarkets.
