The Xuron 170-II flush cutter, for shear cutting soft wire, is alloy steel, and has a return spring and nonslip hand grips. It cuts soft wire up to 20 American wire gauge (AWG) (0.8 mm). The alloy steel flush cutter has Rockwell hardness 54-56C for strength, and a return spring that requires minimal hand movement. It is compact, for access into small areas, and has nonslip hand grips for comfort and control. The Xuron 170-II flush cutter can be used to trim wire in precision electronics work and plastic degating.
Dimensions are 5 x 1.85 x .50 inches (H x W x D), and the flush cutter weighs 2.05 oz. (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.)
Flush cutters are wire cutters that are ground to the apex of the cutting edge on one jaw side, allowing an even cut. They can be used to trim copper, brass, iron, aluminum, and steel wires, and are commonly used in precision electronics and jewelry applications.
Xuron Corporation manufactures electronics-grade hand tools for the electronics, aerospace, plastic molding, floral, and fishing industries. The company, founded in 1971, is headquartered in Saco, ME.

"Capacity: 18 AWG"
That means it should not be used to cut thicker than 18 gauge wires. I however cut 16 AWG many times (no problems) and then attempted to cut a 20+ bundle of 16 gauge wires at once. One of the two shears snapped off.
Xuron sent me a replacement for free. Feeling guilty that I cost them money due to my irresponsibility, I decided to buy another Shear cutter (an LX model, which is stamped out of thicker metal and is heat-treated to a higher hardness. It's designed to cut 16 AWG wires). Very happy with their products and service.
The LX model is physically the same size as this 170-II. The LX weighs 54 grams and the 170-II weighs 49 grams. I can't feel the weight difference in my hand. I'd probably recommend the LX as it costs less than three bucks extra.
First day impressions are not always right. After having them 4 days I'm disappointed to say they do not cut and I haven't started cutting on my thicker garages, 20, 18 gauge wire. I'm hoping my maintenance man will be able to sharpen them. I still have a xuron cutter I bought several years ago that works and I do like this company. I'll still recommend them.
back to the cutters, i believe these are so valuable, that they should be in everyone's tool collection... they have certainly been a very useful and effective staple item for us for a long time... i may sharpen them soon, but they are still sharp enough to cut flush and effectively...
Xuron really makes a good tool... very pleased,
Thank you! :-)
I finally decided to buy electricians side cutters, thinking I needed a heavier duty and discovered this brand in my search.
I was originally concerned about the slight off-set - thinking that wire wouldn't be cut correctly but with Amazons exceptional return policy decided to try them.
I've been using these daily for a week and have to say that they are an excellent option at an excellent price. The off-set doesn't seem to impact my wire cutting at all. They are lightweight and a good fit for my hand.
I'll see how long they remain sharp-almost every pair of cutters starts out sharp but after 60 days of continual use it's a different story. I hope I can edit this in a couple of months with a positive message!
