The 1-1/8" wide jaws have induction-hardened double-bevelled edges that can cut nearly flush (within 1/16" of a surface) and their offset configuration ensures the handles won't get in the way when trimming items that project past the hinge.
Suitable for nails and steel rod up to 4mm (approx. 5/32") in diameter and hardened wire up to 3.5mm (approx. 9/64"). 8" long; maximum opening of 1/4".
