Knipex X-Cut Compact Diagonal Cutter offering big energy savings due to high transmission ratio of manual force

The Knipex 7306160SB (carded) X-Cut Compact Diagonal Cutter is a compact tool for big tasks, giving accurate cuts on thin wire, thick cable and spring steel. Thanks to the geometry of the cutting edges and the high-quality chrome vanadium tool steel, accurate cuts of fine copper wire as well as thick, multicore cable with a diameter of up to 12 mm are possible. The cutting edges on the X-Cut also bite easily through nails and wire of all kinds including spring steel wire (piano wire). It's the small tool that is big on energy saving. With an extremely high transmission of manual force leads to around 40 % less effort required compared to conventional diagonal cutters of the same length. Weighing only 175g, length only 160mm, with a large opening width. The ideal statistics for this compact tool which, thanks to the insulation that complies with standards, can also be used with live parts as long as the relevant safety rules have been complied with. The design of these compact diagonal cutters with box joint design offers the greatest possible stability because the handles of the pliers stabilise each other in the joint. The joint axle of the Knipex X-Cut is mounted on two sides, the edges of the inner pliers handle are guided on either side. The quality chrome plating permits simple cleaning and is also an advantage if the tool is, for example, kept permanently in a service vehicle where condensation may arise due to changing temperatures. The chrome plating provides effective corrosion resistance.
