These unusual needle-nose pliers have double-bevelled cutting edges 3/16" from the tips of the jaws, rather than the usual placement next to the hinge.
For modelmaking, they can serve as a sprue cutter and detail pliers in a single tool. For other tasks, the 1 1/2" long tapered jaws let you reach into a confined spot to manipulate parts or wire, then make cuts with only a small repositioning of the tool.
Smooth surfaces at the rear of the jaws allow you to bend or shape material with minimal risk of marring. A rigid steel nib projecting from the face of one jaw aligns with a guide hole in the opposite jaw, helping to prevent the jaws from skewing when used in a twisting motion.
PVC coating for comfortable grip. Overall length is 5".
Made in Japan.
