Keiba Sprue Cutters offer the finest in compound leverage construction at an affordable price. Leverage combined with an induction-hardened, high grade steel jaw allows for cutting up to 3.2 mm diameter soft copper wire or up to 2.9 mm diameter for cutting hard wire. Cutting limits are for cutting at the deepest point of the "V" slot, and not at the tips.
Compared to other brands of sprue cutters, these cutters are a real bargain.
The Keiba Sprue Cutters feature a locking mechanism near the tips and an adjustable jaw stop in the handles for setting a limit on how close the jaws come to touching each other. They also feature a fabric wrist safety holder so you don't accidentally drop the cutters. Tip to end of handle measurement is 8-1/2" (215 mm).
Made with top grade material from Kobe Steel, LTD, called Marutolloy, and alloy made exclusively for Maruto Hasegawa Kosakufo Inc, makers of the KEIBA brand of cutters and pliers. The result is a product that is processed to be extremely tough but not brittle. Made in Japan.
