Not all cutting edges are the same. The 8-inch Channellock 338 Diagonal Cutting Plier uses precision machined knife and anvil style cutting edges to ensure perfect mating and superior cutting edge life. Channellock uses high carbon C1080 steel for superior performance on the job, and an electronic coating for ultimate rust prevention. It's completed by Channellock's iconic blue handle, which is both comfortable in your hand and easy to spot in your tool bag.
The 338 can cut piano wire (0.063- to 0.091-inch thick), hard wire (0.047- to 0.091-inch), medium hard wire (0.047- to 0.091-inch), and soft wire (0.162-inch maximum diameter).
Channellock utilizes precision-machined knife and anvil style cutting edges to ensure perfect mating and superior cutting edge life. While most manufactureres use two sharp edges that can become misaligned and lose their cutting effectiveness, Channellock's knife and anvil cutters give you proper cutting edge alignment for a clean cut every time. The edge is also laser hardened for unprecedented edge life.

Founded in 1886, Channellock is a worldwide leader in the manufacture of high-quality pliers and assorted hand tools. Now run by the fifth generation of the DeArment family, Channellock tools reflect a tradition of dedication to excellence maintained for well over a century. Over the years, Channellock has obtained several patents including one in 1965 for the conical surface created on the cam side of the pliers when undercut and another in 1984 for the PermaLock fastener found in its Tongue and Groove Pliers. Channellock still manufactures more than 120 different sizes and types of pliers and hand tools at its facilities in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

Usual high quality Channellock tool. Haven't used to cut wire yet so can't vouch for hardness and durability of its cutting edge but I expect it to work fine.Published 2 months ago by Richard Haver
Snap-on? Mac? Phooey. I absolutely love these dikes. After working in a shop for so long, you get to know the stuff that's good and the stuff that just isn't. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Lil' Johnny
As mentioned in a couple other reviews, the tips of the pliers broke off after basic usage. I've tried using them since, and it is much tougher to get precise cuts as a result of... Read morePublished 3 months ago by J Sizzle
