Needle nose pliers with cutting function for electricians and fitters
Pliers for gripping, positioning and cutting
The jaws of the Knipex 25 02 160 are pointed at the front. Thanks to this design, the needle nose pliers are suitable for a wide range of tasks: for fine, well measured gripping and holding of components. A cutting function is integrated for the efficient cutting of cable and wire. The shape of the cutting edges of the Knipex 25 02 160 produces an efficient bite type cut.
Thanks to additional induction hardening of the blades (cutting edge hardness approx. 61 HRC), the user can cut cable, soft and medium-hard wire (cutting capacity Ø 2.5 mm) as well as hard wire (cutting capacity Ø 1.6 mm).
Stable needle nose pliers – also when twisting and during powerful cutting
The precision tips of the Knipex 25 02 160 are elastic and remain stable when twisted. This is an advantage when securely holding larger components, but also when holding and guiding smaller parts. The user can always measure the manual force deployed. Little effort is required when cutting because the cutting edges are in a favourable position near the joint of the pliers. Manual force is ideally transmitted to the material to be cut.
Work well in confined spaces
The Knipex 25 02 160 has been specially developed for work in confined spaces. With the jaws that are pointed at the front, the user can grip and hold components and wire firmly. These pliers are therefore valued as a particularly useful tool during repairs, maintenance work and installations.
Knipex quality – the needle nose pliers or radio pliers
These snipe nose side cutting pliers are a quality tool especially for professional use, in plumbing for example. Those who use tools professionally every day expect a quality that permits simple and safe work. The tool must also last for many years of hard use.
We therefore forge our tools from quality materials, machine them with great precision on up-to-date tool machinery, and harden them carefully using repeated heat treatment.
Every pair of Knipex pliers represents more than 130 years of specialist know-how.
