Let me cut to the chase. I need you to cut any thoughts out of your head that those cheap side cutters you're thinking of getting are a good idea. They just won't cut it in any professional environment. Cut it out...I'm not even sorry!!!
In researching these tools I went down a rabbit hole looking at the element Vanadium. In honour of that hour wasted I will present you with just one random fact per tool about Vanadium:
Fact 3: Small amounts of Vanadium added to steal increases the tensile strength of steel as it can form stable carbide and nitrides with steel. This was only discovered in the mid-20th century and this process is used in this very tool!
See our complete range of tools for more riveting facts! These drop forged vanadium steel side cutters are a handy 150mm size for ease of use in tight spaces (Larger, 200mm size available here). They feature a 1000V safety rating, precision machined, bevelled blades for perfect flush cutting and a very comfortable ergonomic handle design.
