This Italian-made tool is suitable for cutting up to 16 gauge / 1.3mm soft metal wire*. Shear-action creates a flush cut which can require less finishing. High-grade tool steel blades have a Rockwell hardness of 58, allowing for efficient cutting over a longer period of time than lower-grade steel. Ergonomic 5" curved shape helps reduce hand fatigue. Perfect for wire-workers who use 24 gauge and thinner silver, gold, or soft copper wires. Black finish on upper cutting surface helps reduce eye strain.
* This tool is not suitable for cutting memory wire, flex wire, or steel wire
