Designed for optimum durability, flexibility and accessibility in narrow and confined spaces. These long-lasting tools are manufactured in Sweden from 1% carbon, ball-bearing steel and specially heat-treated to produce a high Rockwell hardness of 63-65 HRC. The precision ground lap joint and adjustable screw-and-nut assembly guarantee an even functioning of the joint without any play and ensure total contact between cutting edges. Metal surfaces are black-oxidized to protect them against corrosion and to eliminate disturbing light reflections. For handy reference information, plier cutting capacity is printed on the inside of handles.
