These high-quality, German-made prong-closing pliers have an extra-thin point on one side of one jaw, helping to reach tiny or hidden prongs. The jaws on stone-setting pliers are specially shaped to provide easy access to prongs. Use them to move prongs securely into place against the stone or to move prongs away when removing a stone from its setting. These pliers are ideal for setting stone clusters or very small settings. These pliers are made of hardened tool steel, forged and work-hardened for the best combination of strength and durability. The jaws will not be nicked with normal use and will keep their shape and finish. Use Cosmoline® or a similar protectant to clean this tool; avoid contact with moisture.
• These pliers have a box joint; one half of the joint surrounds the other half, and the pivot is contained within. This joint holds its alignment far longer than a lap joint but allows the tool to open only as far as the box size.
• Plastic-dipped handles help ensure comfort and a secure grip.
