Every cutter has limitations. What can shorten a cutter’s life is the material used to make it, the degree of hardness, the length of the handles and especially, which material you are trying to cut. To overcome these limitations we’ve combined tungsten carbide steel cutting tips with military grade superior tensile-strength stainless steel. These “top of the line” cutters have comfortable, foam covered extra leverage handles, providing precise control and leverage. 13mm wide cutting edge and 6-1/2″ long.
