Extremely easy cutting with little strain:

cuts again 50 % easier than the tried and tested KNIPEX high leverage diagonal cutters

NEW for diagonal cutters:

The option to reapply the tool. The KNIPEX TwinForce cuts even 5/32" (4 mm) thick wire without great effort when reapplied two or three times. Conventional high leverage diagonal cutters either cannot cut these diameters or only with very great effort.

The high performance diagonal cutters with opening spring for easier reapplication and for heavy use

The opening spring can be easily activated and deactivated by a press of the thumb

Insert the wires as close to the hinge as possible. In case of cutters with very high transmission, the width of the gap between the cutting edges close to the fulcrum may be less than the thickness of the wire. Wires may slip forward when the cutting starts.

First make a notch in the wire using the KNIPEX TwinForce until the required hand force increases considerably. Now open the pliers and slide the wire backwards towards the joint. Hold the cutting edge in the notches you have made in step 1.

Continue cutting in the same location along the wire. Now cutting is much more easier because the wire remains in place closer to the fulcrum.

You can repeat this process if necessary.
