  • The Knipex 73 06 160 X-Cut is a multi-talented all-rounder cutting plier with insulated multi-component grips, VDE tested handles, it has a box joint design and is compact, light and simultaneously powerful and highly precise.
  • With its wide range of cutting abilities, it offers versatility in industry, trades and crafts.
  • The VDE version of this plier is individually tested at 10,000V to ensure safe working at up to 1,000V and passes EN60900.
  • A specially engraved jaw prevents the wire slipping away from the pivot point, ensuring an easy, clean cut every time.
  • The X-Cut cuts through the finest strands with great precision, has the force required for easy cutting hard piano wire, and features a large jaw opening for multi-stranded cables.
  • When cutting a medium-hard wire (Ø 3 mm) the X-Cut requires about 20% less force than a conventional diagonal cutter of the same size.
  • Further user-friendly advantages are provided by the box joint design with easy, zero-backlash movement and a slim head shape for easy access even when working in confined areas.
  • This KNIPEX innovation provides professionals from industry, trades and crafts with a general-purpose diagonal cutter to meet the most varied cutting requirements in a metalworking shop or an electrical workshop.
