These high quality cutters feature ‘parrot beak’ jaws that will cleanly cut stainless steel cable up to 4.8mm in diameter. When cutting cable it is essential to not disturb the pattern of the strands (which can happen when using conventional wire cutters) as it makes it extremely difficult to feed the cable through the crimp sleeves and can weaken the cable. These cutters will maintain the integrity of the multi-strand pattern ensuring a clean and fray-free cut each and every time.
