Knipex Diagonal Cutter optimised for the craftsman’s everyday work

The Knipex 7001160 has been long appreciated by many craftsmen – the Knipex diagonal cutters with a length of 160 mm are a classic in the Knipex range. From the shape of the head through to the polish and hardness of the cutting edges, it is customised for the diverse cutting tasks in the day-to-day work of electricians and mechatronics engineers. With their cutting capacities of up to Ø 2.0 mm on hard wire (e.g. wire rope fibre) and up to Ø 4.0 mm on soft wire (e.g. copper wire), the diagonal cutters offer a broad range of applications. The long cutting edges make them ideal for cutting cable. The extremely carefully and precisely machined cutting edges enable even very fine stranded wire to be cut accurately – up to the tips of the cutting edges. This is a great advantage where space is restricted, for example when shortening fine stranded wires in junction boxes. We forge the Knipex diagonal cutters from vanadium electric steel and make them strong by warming them and then quenching them in oil. To achieve a permanently accurate cut we additionally use high-frequency current to give the cutters a hardness of approx. 62 HRC.
