7421200-copper
20 percent reduction of hand force due to high leverage power joint (view larger).

The 8-inch Knipex angled diagonal cutter (model 74 01 200) is ideal for tough, continuous use. Easy to use, it offers high-leverage axel design with a 20 percent reduction in required force compared to conventional cutters of the same length for reduced fatigue. It features optimum coordination of the cutting edge angle, transmission ratio, and ergonomic handle shape, and it easily cuts nails and all types of wire with high-performance precision.

Forged from oil-hardened chrome vanadium steel, it's built to last. The fixed forged axle rivet joint assures continuous smooth operation with no weakening or wobbling effect over time. The precision matched, induction-hardened cutting edges cut a wide range of materials — from soft copper and aluminum to hardened materials like nails, piano wire, or ACSR wire without changing tools or damaging the cutting edges. It's completed with heavy duty plastic-coated handle grips.

7421200-wire
Suitable for all types of wire including piano wire (view larger).

Quality in Every Detail

Sometimes we give our pliers a really hard time. We try to destroy them to find out what makes them good and long-lasting. Because we don't want to leave anything to chance, we take a long, careful look.

The steel Knipex uses is precisely hardened with a maximum of 0.8 percent carbon and defined parts of chromium and vanadium, guaranteeing optimum cutting performance and service life — even though it requires special production and costs a bit more. But our high product demands require this.

The rivet of our high-leverage diagonal cutter also has to stand up to a lot of stress. That's why we literally give it backup: we forge it straight onto the pliers. This means extra effort as we have to precision mill the rivet to a few hundredth millimeters. But satisfied users are worth this effort.

Knipex also looks closely at the small details. The angles, the sharpness, the hardness, the toughness of the cutting edges. The precision and smooth movement of the joint. The handle design and the finish. We keep reviewing these subjects, we research, we test, and we improve our pliers.

About Knipex

Headquartered in Wuppertal, Germany, Knipex is an independently-owned family enterprise steeped in tradition and specializing in the manufacturing of high-quality pliers. It all started back in 1882 when C. Gustav Putsch set up his own forge shop in Cronenberg (now a suburb of Wuppertal), and the company is now run by a fourth generation of that family. The world's leading brand in pliers today, Knipex is focused on the performance, service life, and ergonomics of its tools in order to meet the high expectations of professional users.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This cutter does a great job, easily up to medium size ~ medium hard nails and wire.
An 8 D steel casing nail is like butter.
But when I tried to cut 11/64" nails like the product claims ~ (approx a 16 D)
the strength required made me suspect that the edge may get damaged, so I stopped.
I can now see a little daylight through the closed jaws at that place.

As you cut larger diameter items you start to find this cutters limitations.
The product claim that this high leverage diagonal cutter requires 21% less effort
could be debatable.
And you need powerful hands to even try to cut the larger size items.

I don't see this cutter being capable of doing all the product description claims,
how-ever they're much better then average quality ~
and because of that I'll keep them, but there not every-thing I expected.

It's nice that Kniper (made in Germany) has a lifetime warranty.
I purchased my cutters at Sears ~ their retail price $22.99.

~~~~~~ Key points from product description statement ~~~~~
1. High leverage with forged ~ on axle for heavy duty requires 21% less effort.
and offers a high level of stability for heavy use and long service life.
2. Precision cutting edges induction hardened to approx 64 HRC suitable for all types of wire.
will cut 11/64" nails, 1/8" steel wire and 7/64" piano wire.
Will cut medium hard wire up to 4.2 mm; hard wire up to 3.0 mm and piano wire with maximum 2.5 mm diameter.
3. Chrome vandium electric steel oil-hardened and tempered .
4. A high cutting performance is due to optimum co-ordination of the cutting edge angle,
transmission ratio and the ergonomically handle shape.
5. Handles are Non-Slip Plastic Coating

Knipex 7410200SBA 8-Inch High Leverage Diagonal Cutters:

This pair of cutters belongs to the power cut series by Knipex. They are diagonal cutters designed for high cutting performance with minimal effort, high leverage diagonal cutters require 21% less effort to use. They are lightweight (10 ounces) due to the high performance chrome vanadium steel. I use these cutters for jobs that need a good set of cutters to cut hard wire, piano wire, or ACSR as they do an excellent job. These cutters have a forged-in-axle for the heaviest duty cutting. I've used the on cable, all kinds of electrical wiring, cutting siding nails and different kinds of fence wire. They worked flawlessly.

Some of the product features are:

* Handles are Non-Slip Dipped Red Plastic Coating
* Forged on Axle Makes it Suitable for all Types of Wire Including Piano Wire
* High Leverage Cutting Performance with Minimum Effort due to Optimum Coordination of Cutting Angle, Transmission Angle and Ergonomic Handle
* Precision Cutting Edges Induction Hardened Cutting Edge Hardness Approximately 64 HRC
* Chrome Vanadium Electric Steel, Oil-Hardened and Tempered
* 8-Inch (200mm)

The high cutting performance is due to optimum co-ordination of the cutting edge angle, transmission ratio and the ergonomically handle shape. The precision cutting edges are induction hardened to approximately 64 HRC and will cut medium hard wire up to 4.2 mm; hard wire up to 3.0 mm and piano wire with maximum 2.5 mm diameter. The forged-on axle offers a high level of stability for heavy use and long service life. After going through several sets of cutters, I decided enough was enough and bought the Knipex. They were on sale at the store that sells Craftsman.

Exelent quality one would expect from knipex. Cuts great and the edges stay sharp for a long time. I just have worn out my father's that he has had for 20 years or so.

Every time I lose a set (theft) or ruin them by trying to cut something stupid I immediately order a new pair. It usually takes 3-5 years for one of those things to happen, so I don't mind paying a few buck more. They are well worth it.

I use these at my work as a maintenance electrician. They are very sharp and strong, the fit feels neither too lose or too tight. They cut well through all types of wire.

So far so good. Only a 4 because wire stripping and cutting are good, not excellent. Could be sharper, but really so far a pretty nice tool. If it stays this good for a long time, I would say 5 stars, because most dull quickly.
