Designed with HR 70+ anvil tungsten carbide side-cutters, these T.C. cutters make short work of any monofilament and excel at cutting the new-age braid and synthetic lines. These pliers can cut wire up to 60lbs. The jaws are made from heat-treated SUS420 J2 coated stainless steel with an HR of 52. The frame is made from 6061-T6 anodized aluminum to withstand salt water and is equipped with non-slip rubber grips and a self-opening spring. This is the most versatile plier in our arsenal.
