KNIPEX's High Leverage Diagonal Cutters feature precision-matched, induction hardened cutting edges that cut soft, hard, piano and ACSR wire. A heavy duty fixed forged axle rivet joint ensures smooth operation. The user achieves a high cutting performance with minimum effort due to the optimum coordination of the cutting edge angle, transmission ratio and ergonomic handle shape. Available in 5", 6", 7", 8" and 10" lengths in straight or angled cutting head designs. The unique 10" length provides a longer reach and greater leverage than traditional 8" cutters.
