  • Diagonal Cutting Pliers
    • Multiple product options available

      Diagonal Cutting Pliers, also known as side-cutting pliers or wire cutters, are intended for the cutting of wire, screws, and nails. Because the cutting edges are diagonally offset, they can cut objects very closely. The diagonal cutting pliers can also cut in areas that cannot be reached by larger cutting tools. The pliers are broken down by tool material:

      Alloy Steel has a small percentage of one or more metals besides iron, which changes the properties of the steel depending on what is added and in what quantity. Usually the properties increase hardness or reduce brittleness in the tool.

      Aluminum Bronze Alloy provides tensile strength, good ductility, and exceptional resistance to fatigue and deformation, making the tool suitable for high-load, high-wear tasks.

      Black Atramentized Steel is tough to help a tool withstand stress without breaking, and is coated with phosphate, a corrosion protection, to help prevent rust.

      Chrome Vanadium Steel is a harder material made to withstand abrasion which helps increase tool durability. The chromium also resists oxidation and corrosion to help prevent tool rust and degradation.

      Nickel Chromium Steel provides very high resistance to corrosion such as seawater or sulfuric acid, to help prevent tool rust or degradation. It also helps reduce tool deformation from long-term exposure to stress.

      Stainless Steel has all the properties of steel plus it contains between 10% to 20% chromium making it non-corrosive to help prevent tool rust. It also offers easy maintenance.

      Steel is an alloy of iron with carbon. Steel is broken up into 4 groups: carbon, alloy, stainless and tool. It is the amount of carbon and the additional alloys that determine the various grades and properties that would affect a tool.

      Tool Steel contains tungsten, molybdenum, cobalt, and vanadium to increase hardness, helping the tool withstand abrasion as well as be heat-resistant.

    • Multiple product options available

      These Precision Diagonal Cutting Pliers are for delicate cutting in items such as electronics, fine mechanics, jewelry, models, clocks and small appliances. They are intended for the cutting of wire, screws, and nails. Because the cutting edges are diagonally offset, they can cut objects very closely. The precision diagonal cutting pliers can also cut in areas that cannot be reached by larger cutting tools. The pliers are broken down by tool material:
