Cut cable in a professional and non-tiring way, ideal for installation work
Why cable should only be cut using cable shears
Unlike diagonal cutters with blades that meet at an obtuse angle, for example, Knipex cable shears cut using a scissors action. This principle produces a substantially better result, because cables are cut very smoothly and cleanly. They are therefore excellent for shortening cable, e.g. in house wiring work.
They can, for example, also be used to professionally cut NYM-J 3x1.5 mm or NYM-J 5x2.5 mm and all other standard and finely stranded Cu and Al cable up to 50 mm². Due to the nature of their cutting edges, the cable shears should not be used to cut hard wire.
Knipex 95 21 165: cable cutting requiring little physical effort
Protect hands and material: thanks to the very sharp cutting edges, compared to conventional diagonal cutters, the user only needs around one third of the physical effort when cutting using the Knipex 95 21 165. Especially during prolonged use, e.g. building installation work, less tiring work substantially reduces strain for the fitter. Thanks to a scissors action and the precision ground cutting edges, the result is a clean, technically perfect cut –the ideal condition for subsequent connection work.
Screwed joint with easy operation – opening spring to make work easier
These cable shears have the precisely running, bolted joint to thank for their very easy operation. The self-locking joint bolt can be tightened if necessary. These cable shears can also be deployed for the less tiring cutting of larger cable cross-sections. The protected inset captive opening spring helps here, saving one hand movement during every operation using the Knipex 95 21 165.

Knipex quality – cable shears
The cable shears from Knipex are a quality, indispensable tool for house wiring work. Those who use tools every day expect a quality that permits simple and safe work.
The tool must also last for many years of hard use. We manufacture our tools from quality materials, machine them with high precision on modern machinery and harden them with careful multiple stage heat treatment.
Every pair of Knipex pliers represents more than 130 years of specialist know-how.
