KNIPEX CoBolt® S bolt cutter: the expert for cutting round materials

KNIPEX CoBolt® S with 25-fold manual force amplification – now also with a recess in the cutting edge for even more effective cutting of round materials

KNIPEX extends the CoBolt® family: The CoBolt® S with a length of 160 millimetres is now also available as the 71 31 160 with a recess in the heavy-duty, approx. 64 HRC cutting edge. Bolts, rivets and nails with a diameter up to 4.4 mm and particularly tough materials such as piano wire and spring steel can now be cut close to the joint in a single cutting action. The enhanced leverage effect close to the pivot point makes cutting large cross-sections easier. In addition to the variant with a recess, the KNIPEX CoBolt® S is of course still available without a recess for optimal use on flat materials. All variants share the same lasered cutting edge which prevents the material being cut from slipping. In addition, the slim pliers head ensures good access even in tight spaces. The textured gripping surface below the joint can also be used to pull wires with a diameter of around 1 mm or more, for example when building fences.

Good grip, even for small hands

This compact bolt cutter is forged from chrome vanadium heavy-duty steel and is multistage oil hardened. Its length of 160 mm makes it suitable even for small hands and its weight of only 200 g makes it easier to use for prolonged periods. It can be easily stored anywhere - even in jacket or trouser pockets. Its small, slim head also ensures good access, even in tight spaces.

Brief overview

The heavy-duty cutting edge with recess cuts even the hardest round materials in a single operation

Extremely high cutting performance in a handy 160 mm length

Small, slim head for very good access

Compact and powerful: cuts bolts, nails, rivets etc. up to a diameter of 4.8 mm

Efficient lever action mechanism means less effort

Recess: better leverage effect close to the pivot point, easier to cut large cross-sections

Compact and really tough: the KNIPEX CoBolt® family

Most bolt cutters derive their brutal cutting power mainly from their large size. The "pocket bolt cutters" of the KNIPEX CoBolt® family are different: They're handy and powerful! In compact sizes of 160, 200 or 250 mm, they cut through even the hardest piano wire thanks to precision cutting edges and efficient joints.

Power pack for the hardest materials

The heavy-duty, approx. 64 HRC hard cutting edges cut the hardest materials such as piano wire and spring steel with diameters of up to 4.4 mm.

Ideal for round materials: the KNIPEX CoBolt® with recess

The recess allows round materials to be positioned closer to the joint. The improved leverage makes easy work of cutting through even very hard materials with less effort.

Go ahead and pull firmly

The practical gripping surface facilitates gripping and pulling wires or nails.

Optimally accessible

With its slim head, the KNIPEX CoBolt® cuts in places that other bolt cutters can't even get near.
