An all-around tool for the toughest demands, this Knipex high-leverage CoBolt cutter features a lever action design that applies 20 times more hand force for superior cutting power with less effort. This mini bolt cutter can cut through more than you ever thought possible — up to 1/4-inch diameter with ease. It's ideal for automotive or construction applications, cutting cotter pins and nails, repeated use in factory assembly lines, cutting wire fencing in agricultural settings, or even everyday tasks such as cutting floral wire or fish hooks.
Forged from chrome vanadium electric steel, it's built to last. This lightweight cutter features precision-matched cutting edges for cutting soft or hard steel. The cutting edge recess near the joint keeps thicker wires in a better cutting position (optimum lever ratio), so there is no need to re-position the tool to achieve the desired cut. It's completed with multi-component comfort handle grips for a wider grip. It also features gripping jaws below the joint for gripping and pulling nails and wires.

Knipex Tools was started in 1882 by Carl Gustav Putsch who set up a shop in the family home specializing in making pliers. To this day, Knipex still specializes in making high quality pliers and in addition to that, they have created some really cool and innovative pliers designs. Knipex specialty pliers include the pliers wrench, the Alligator and Cobra pliers and the Cobolt bolt cutters – each with their own specialties and features that set them apart from common brands. Knipex’s workmanship is also among the best, their tools are made of some of the strongest tool steel available and it’s a difference you can feel. Knipex Tools help you get a grip on whatever job you need to do, so if you need pliers or gripping tools, Knipex is it.
