Product Description

Product Description

The CHANNELLOCK 338 8-Inch High Leverage Diagonal Lap Joint Cutting Plier uses precision machined knife and anvil cutters to ensure proper cutting edge alignment, resulting in a clean cut every time.

Amazon.com

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.

B00004SBDD-338-main
High leverage cutter with lap joint diagonal
(view larger).

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.

We use these side cutters in a fencing operation in New Zealand and we find that they are the only cutters that will take the rough handling.
The cutters will cut all the wire we use from high tensile to soft wire.
Also it only takes 4 -5 days to get them landed on my door step from the USA to New Zealand. Keep up the good work Amazon and we will be back

Great set of dikes, these things cut very well with nice high leverage. They're also downright sexy. Best dikes I've used anywhere.

However, before buying these note that they've come out with a higher leverage version that is the same size, the E338.
They've made the rivet smaller in order to get it closer to the cutting knives and thereby increased the leverage. My 369 lineman have this, and the leverage is ridiculously good--definitely better than these (but they also have longer handles). As happy as I am with my 338 dikes, I probably would have got the E338 if I had known about them when I was ordering.

These are great side cutters, they are a fantastic price and they only took 6days to get to me in Melbourne, Australia.

I'm an electrician so they will get used every day and I'm sure they will last many year.

I love Channelock products. This cutter is a must have for any person who likes to fix or build anything. I even cut hot wires (whoops) with no ill effect.

This channellock 338 8 ins cutter was indeed made to cut, it cut and cut and cut and just cut, it likes to cut, I used it to make a wire fence that is 230 yds x 230 yards x 230 yds x 230 yds, tie all the binding wires for all the steel to build a very big culvert and this pliers refuses to stop cutting. It will not fail all craftsmen who cut wire.By the way, any tool that made in America is an excellent well made tool, and when purchase through Amazon.com you get a good product, excellent suppliers, immediate shipping, you get what you click on.Please do not stop making these cutting pliers

Well, Channellocks are the Cadillac of hand tools and this one is no exception. It is well made, very ergonomic and cuts through anything. And best of all, it's made in the good 'ol US of A. Costs a bit more but worth every cent.

Misplaced my cutters I have had for 30 years. Hoped buying new ones would cause the old ones to show up. Not so far!

Anyway, great quality and after one days use, turned around and bought a second pair for my son.

I bought these as a less expensive alternative to brands like Klein and Greenlee. I like the Channellock brand, but I have not had a great experience with this tool. I'm an electrician and these side cutters don't stand up to heavy, repetitive use. I've broken the cutting edge on 3 different pairs and I don't abuse them. Channellock is good at letting you exchange them as their American made tools carry a lifetime guarantee, however it becomes inconvenient replacing them every 3 or 4 months. I would recommend Klein over Channellock simply because Klein tools can take more of a beating. I would say these side cutters are great for light/medium intermittent use, but not for the tradesmen.
