These 6-Inch Klein Tools Diagonal-Cutting Pliers have skinning holes to cleanly skin the insulation from 16 AWG wire. The tapered nose works well in confined areas. Their short, jaws with standard cutting knives are induction-hardened for long life. Beveled cutting edges permit close cutting of wire. Forged with US-made tool steel, they feature a hot riveted joint for long lasting smooth action and no handle wobble.
