The Knipex 73-06 Series X-Cut Diagonal Cutters are fitted with multi-component grips, VDE tested up to 10,000V and safe for work up to 1,000V. They conform to DIN EN / IEC 60900. This box joint diagonal cutter 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 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.
