Compact tool for big tasks

Accurate cuts on thin wire, thick cable and spring steel

Thanks to the geometry of the cutting edges and the high-quality chrome vanadium tool steel, accurate cuts of fine copper wire as well as thick, multicore cable with a diameter of up to 12 mm are possible using the Knipex 73 02 160 X-Cut. The cutting edges of the X-Cut bite their way unperturbed through nails and all kinds of wire through to spring steel wire (piano wire).

Big energy savings due to high transmission ratio of manual force

The small tool that is big on energy saving. The extremely high transmission of manual force leads to around 40 % less effort required compared to conventional diagonal cutters of the same length. Weight only 175 g, length only 160 mm and a large opening width: the ideal statistics for this compact tool.

Tough and strong: box joint design, double guide and double mounted joint axle

The design of these compact diagonal cutters with box joint design offers the greatest possible stability because the handles of the pliers stabilise each other in the joint: the joint axle of the Knipex 73 02 160 X-Cut is mounted on two sides; the edges of the inner pliers handle are guided on either side.
