Here is an excellent choice for domestic wiring. This diagonal cutter offers two options. The rear cutting area, near to joint, is suitable for medium-hard and hard wire. The forward cutting area for cutting soft wire, features precision stripping options for 1.5 mm² and 2.5 mm² conductors.These are the correct size and not just the nearest wire gauge as found on many imported wire strippers. Wiha’s DynamicJoint gives the most efficient transmission of hand strength to the cutting edges. The advantage results in 40% less effort being required for cutting tasks. The edges undergo additional induction hardening to approx. 62 HRC. Individually tested protective insulation 1,000V AC, VDE and GS tested. DIN ISO 5743, manufactured according to IEC 60900:2004, length 160mm(6.5").
VDE is a standard to ensure screwdrivers and other hand tools are safe to use when working with electricity. VDE takes its acronym from the German company Verband der Elektrotechnik, who are responsible for testing and certifying tools and appliances.
