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.

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
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.
Channellock E338 Series Diagonal Cutting
I'm an electrician so they will get used every day and I'm sure they will last many year.
Anyway, great quality and after one days use, turned around and bought a second pair for my son.
The one feature I liked about the kobalts and that the channellocks are missing was a highly textured/rubberized grip, which let me squeeze quite a bit more. Granted, that doesn't matter as much with the increased cutting power of the 338s.
I've used them in cutting ceramic plugs and in electrical work.
