Knipex X-Cut Compact Diagonal Cutters Multi Component Grip

The Knipex 73 02 160 X-Cut is a multi-talented all-rounder cutting plier with soft-grip handles, it has a box joint design and is compact, light and simultaneously powerful and highly precise. With its wide range of cutting abilities, it offers versatility in industry, trades and crafts.

The X-Cut cuts through the finest strands with great precision, has the force required for easy cutting hard piano wire, and features a large jaw opening for multi-stranded cables.
