The CoBolt compact bolt cutter is one of the latest tools from Knipex. The handheld cutter has a lever action design that provides 20 times more hand force than traditional bolt cutters. Forged from oil-hardened chrome vanadium electric steel, this 8-inch hand cutter features precision matched, induction-hardened cutting edges that cut through quarter-inch diameter thickness. Available in a variety of styles, the cutter can cut through steel nails, bolts, screws and hard wire. The cutter is also available with a straight or angled head, and features a jaw notch recess meant to improve leverage and maximizes power when cutting thicker materials.
