The versatile, chrome-plated diagonal cutters, 160 mm long
Optimised for the craftsman’s everyday work
Long appreciated by many craftsmen – the Knipex diagonal cutters with a length of 160 mm have been numbered among the classics in the Knipex range for a long time. From the shape of the head through to the polish and hardness of the cutting edges, they are customised for the diverse cutting tasks in the day-to-day work of electricians and mechatronics engineers.
Universal cutting capacity
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 Knipex 70 05 160 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
Tough and durable
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. Thanks to the multi-component grips, the handles are non-slip and very comfortable.
Another advantage is the chrome plating. If the tool remains permanently in the service vehicle, for example, the chrome plating is an efficient protection against rust caused by condensation on the tool during temperature changes. A chrome-plated tool is also easy to clean.
Versatile diagonal cutters
Knipex diagonal cutters: precise cuts right up to the tips of the cutting edges
One can see how good diagonal cutters are by the cut. Knipex diagonal cutters deliver lasting high performance. In addition to the quality forged metal parts made of vanadium electric steel, the most important quality criteria at Knipex include the precise machining of the tool steel manufactured in Germany. The material to be cut is cut cleanly. The length and sharpness of the blades of the Knipex 70 05 160 are designed for high performance – even in confined spaces. The high quality and hardness of the blades guarantee a long service life.
