The choice of material (Chrome Vanadium), lever ratio and cutting edge angle mean that KNIPEX High Leverage Diagonal Cutters are specifially designed for the cutting of hard wires. Fixed, forged-on axle for work under continuous stress.
Requires 21% less effort Cutting a medium hard wire of 2.0 mm dia. with a High Leverage Diagonal Cutter (length 160 mm) requires a handforce of only 293 N (29.3 kp) instead of 370 N (37.0 kp) with a common Diagonal Cutter of the same length.
With forged-on axle for heaviest duty
Suitable for all types of wire including piano wire
High cutting performance with minimum effort due to optimum co-ordination of the cutting edge angle, transmission ratio and ergonomic handle shape
