Snipe-nose pliers with additional cutting edge

Insulated pliers for gripping, positioning and cutting

The tapered snipe-nose pliers combine several special qualities. On the one hand, they are suitable for fine, easy control and firm gripping of workpieces, as well as powerful cutting of cables and wires. The cutting edges are shaped for a more efficient pierced cut similar to a diagonal cutter.

Additional induction hardening of the cutting edges (hardness approx. 61 HRC) lets the Knipex 25 06 160 cut cables, soft and medium-hard wire as well as hard wire.

Stable snipe-nose pliers – even under torsion and when cutting under force

The vanadium electric steel precision tips of the snipe-nose pliers are flexible and torsion-resistant. Larger workpieces are held securely and smaller ones are gripped gently. Manual force is transferred efficiently, as the cutting edges are close to the joint. Cutting values of Ø2.5 mm on soft/medium-hard wire and Ø1.6 mm on hard wire speak for themselves.

Freedom of movement even in confined spaces – even on live parts

The slim Knipex 25 06 160 snipe-nose pliers are a welcome tool especially for electricians and fitters. Thanks to their insulated handles, the pliers are also suitable for work on live parts. Because they taper to the front, workpieces, wires and components are easily gripped and held. Chrome finish effectively protects against corrosion.
