Why are the cutting edges of the KNIPEX Electronic SuperKnips® offset and not directly on top of each other?
The offset of the cutting edges of the KNIPEX Electronic SuperKnips® has been deliberately chosen for the following reason:
Since the cutting edges are very sharp, they would destroy each other if they hit each other directly. That is why we have chosen a small offset of a few hundredths of a millimeter (up to a maximum of 0.2 mm) (micro cutting edge offset). This not only protects the razor-sharp cutting edges, but also reliably cuts the thinnest wire.
