These Italian made cutters are superbly engineered for a truly great cut. Jaws pass one another ever so slightly but do not touch, and therefore do not dull as quickly as conventional cutters. Moreover, the newly added safety clip keeps wire or other materials from flying when cut, minimizing waste. With a new ergonomic handle to lessen fatigue, these cutters are the best choice for non-ferrous metals. Length is 5-1/2".
