Manufactured in Germany to exacting standards, these diagonal flush cutters quickly and accurately cut thick or over-sized pieces. Flush cutters require somewhat more pressure to make a cut than super- or semi-flush cutters. Though more noticeable than that left by the super- or semi-flush, the pinch is still minimal. The oval head shape of these cutters helps extend the blade life.
• These cutters 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.
• The double-leaf spring consists of flat, tempered metal tabs attached to the inside of each of the tool handles, positioned to meet and hold the handles apart (and the jaws open) until they are squeezed closed, delivering a fast, strong rebound for improved productivity.
• The plastic-dipped handles ensure a secure and comfortable grip.
These cutters are forged from a rod of high-grade tool steel, a very hard, strong material for cutters. The tool is work-hardened as the metal is compressed and shaped and then tempered to prevent brittleness. Forging offers the best combination of strength and durability; the jaws will not be nicked or misshapen with normal use. Clean with Cosmoline® or a similar protectant; avoid contact with moisture.
