Versatile, chrome-plated diagonal cutters with a length of 180 mm

The classic for the craftsman’s everyday work

The Knipex diagonal cutters with a length of180 mm are a compact, powerful and valuable tool for discerning users.

From the shape of the head through to the polish and hardness of the cutting edges, the Knipex 70 05 180 is customised for the diverse cutting tasks in the day-to-day work of electricians and mechatronics engineers.

Strong, universal cutting capacity

With their cutting capacities of up to Ø 2.5 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 05 180 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. Chrome plating is advantageous. If the tool is kept permanently in the car, for example, the chrome plating offers effective protection against rust produced by condensation on the tool resulting from temperature changes. The chrome-plated tool is also easy to clean.

Versatile diagonal cutters (180 mm long)

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 05 180 are designed for high performance – even in confined spaces. The high quality and hardness of the blades guarantee a long service life.

Accurate cut right into the tips of the cutting edges.
