Our Cable Cutters are manufactured from aircraft quality ALLOY STEEL. They go through a complicated heat-treating process to produce a file hard surface and a tough core. That combination provides a long life to the cutting edge. The cutters incorporate a unique handle design to provided added leverage with thick vinyl grips for comfortable cutting. The jaws are designed to produce clean cuts with no frayed ends. This allows you to easily insert the cable through an oval sleeve. ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION WHEN USING A CUTTER.
