For gripping, positioning and cutting
The pointed needle nose pliers with tips angled at 40° combine several qualities. They can be used for the fine, measured gripping of components, but also for the powerful cutting of cable and wire.
The shape of the cutting edges produces an efficient bite type cut.
Thanks to additional induction hardening of the blades to approx. 61 HRC, soft wire (copper wire), medium-hard wire (fence wire) and even hard wire (wire rope fibre) can be cut efficiently using the Knipex 25 25 160 needle nose pliers.
Stable needle nose pliers, also when twisting and during powerful cutting
The angled precision tips of the Knipex 25 25 160 made of vanadium electric steel are elastic and therefore stable when twisted. Users can easily find the optimal amount of manual force to use. Larger components can be held firmly, while smaller components can be gripped gently using the right amount of force.
The position of the cutting edges near the joint produces a favourable level of transmission of manual force to the material to be cut. The effort required during cutting is accordingly low.
Work well also in confined spaces
These needle nose pliers from Knipex are very suitable for working in confined spaces. They are tapered at the front and the tips are at a 40° angle. This special design enables components and wire to also be gripped and held under tight, difficult to reach conditions, e.g. when repairing electrical equipment, during house installations and in plumbing.
The slim needle nose pliers from Knipex are a well-known and popular tool amongst craftsmen and fitters.
