Full flush bead nippers feature the desired “shear action” cut so the edges hold up longer and give you a truly “flush” cut. Excellent for all soft wire up to 20 gauge and beading wire too!

This oblique cutter with carbide insert is suitable for cutting up to 14 gauge stainless steel or other hard metals and double jointed for extra strength and leverage. The special non-slip grip and leaf spring ensures comfort with every use. Length 6″.

This unique tool holds wire coils so that they can be efficiently cut into jump rings. Made of stainless steel,  the Coil Cutting Pliers feature a jaw which firmly but gently grasps coils ranging from 4.50 to 9.0 mm (outside diameter). The jaws feature slits that allow the user, with a jewelers saw  and a 2/0 sawblade, to quickly cut multiple jump rings. Pliers are box-jointed, with PVC comfort grips. Length 7″ (175mm).

This compound cutter is a full 8-1/4″ (210mm) long for excellent leverage. The jaws are hardened tool steel to cut memory wire up to 16 gauge, or sprues up to 1/8″. Jaw length is 5/8″ (14mm). This cutter is economical, but don’t let its price fool you.

Our semi-flush sidecutter offers the user true ergonomics at very reasonable pricing. They feature precision heads and well-tapered   jaws for fine or delicate work. Moreover, the handles are longer   than normal but closer together when plier jaws  are closed. This means less carpel tunnel stress and a more comfortable grip with less fatigue and better control. These pliers have double leaf springs and cushion PVC grips. A real upgrade for beaders and wire artists. 5-1/2″ (140mm) long.
