The special, chrome-plated diagonal cutters, 160 mm long

Optimised for the craftsman’s everyday work and insulated up to 1000 V

Long appreciated by many craftsmen – the insulated Knipex diagonal cutters with a length of 160 mm are a classic in the Knipex range.

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

The Knipex 70 26 160 diagonal cutters are insulated using multi-component grips in accordance with the insulation standard IEC 60900 / DIN EN 60900.

For flush cutting

With their cutting capacities of up to Ø 4.0 mm on soft wire (e.g. copper wire), the Knipex 70 26 160 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. Chrome plating is effective rust protection that pays off during outdoor use, for example. Thanks to the chrome plating, the diagonal cutters are particularly easy to clean.

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 26 160 are designed for high performance – even in confined spaces. The high quality and hardness of the blades guarantee a long service life.
