25 % less effort required compared to conventional concreters' nippers of the same size. Extra-slim form for tying deep mounted steel rods. To lace concrete reinforcing steel with binding wire from a roll. Wire is twisted and cut in a single pass. High-leverage joint, minimising strain, even when thick binding wires are used. The high damping of the cutting stroke on cutting through the binding wire reduces the strain on tendons and muscles. Cutting edges additionally hardened- cutting edge hardness approx. 61 HRC. High-grade special tool steel, forged, oil-hardened.
