Product Description

Knipex X-Cut Compact Diagonal Cutters 160mm VDE KPX7306160

An electrician always uses a diagonal cutting plier, and it's important that it is small enough to reach into confined areas, yet easy enough to use when cutting copper wires repetitively.

The X-Cut is a multi-talented all-rounder: the box joint diagonal cutter from KNIPEX 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.

The VDE version of this plier is individually tested at 10,000V to ensure safe working at up to 1,000V and passes EN60900. A specially engraved jaw prevents the wire slipping away from the pivot point, ensuring an easy, clean cut every time.

When cutting a medium-hard wire (˜ 3 mm) the X-Cut requires about 20% less force than a conventional diagonal cutter of the same size. Further user-friendly advantages are provided by the box joint design with easy, zero-backlash movement and a slim head shape for easy access even when working in confined areas.

This KNIPEX innovation provides professionals from industry, trades and crafts with a general-purpose diagonal cutter to meet the most varied cutting requirements in a metalworking shop or an electrical workshop.

The X-Cut is compact and light but nevertheless heavy-duty and sturdy €" it is the new all-rounder among the diagonal cutters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long lasting quality 20 Dec 2013
I have had a pair of these for going on 6 years now, I use them every day and as yet they are not showing any visible signs of degredation, obviously the handles have got scuffed but the jaws are still perfectly aligned and don't move out of position. I used to have the C.K VDE Heavy Duty cutters but these would go out of line within 6 months, Knipex are by far superior in every respect.

I bought these because of the design, the box joint construction is far stronger and should last longer than most others.
