Hard Wire Cutters

Carbide Cutters

Cutting Capacity for Carbide Cutters is Typically Given for Steel Wire.

Care Tips

Many of these tools have cutting edges made of tungsten carbide.  Tungsten carbide is hard, but also brittle.  If not used within recommended conditions, cutting edges can fracture, crack, or chip. 

  1. Do not hit or drop the tool on a hard surface.
  2. Do not try to bend or distort the tool’s handles or jaw.
  3. Do not exert excessive force, such as trying to cut wire thicker than the cutting capacity of the tool, usually .008” - .020” (0.20mm = 0.051mm) diameter steel wire.
  4. Keep the cutter clean and dry. Replace tip protector when not cutting.
