Cutters - Lindstrom HS-8161 Large Oval Flush Cut
The original ergonomic handtools! In the 1980s one of the pioneers of telecommunications asked us to modify some pliers and cutters. Lindström worked with the customer to develop handles that were longer, softer to the touch and provided more surface area to grip and manipulate the tools. Longer handles had the benefits of avoiding the nerve bundle that passes through the palm of the hand and adding more stability to the tools. The customer loved them! Howard Gittleson, a pioneer of ergonomic handtool research, dubbed this new design HandSaver, which we continue to produce today as the HS handle option.
