Made by Europe’s leading manufacturer of pliers, nippers and cutters for industry and professional craftsmen, our Carpenter’s Pincers are forged using special tool steel and oil hardened. The 1” cutting edge is additionally induction-hardened to HRC 60. The plastic-coated, straight handles are offset from the pivot joint, which compounds the gripping force. A 5/8” x 5/8” flat striking face on the side of one jaw allows the pincers to be used as a light hammer. Jaw opening capacity, 1-1/8”. Overall length, 8-1/4”. Weight, 14.8 oz.
Traditional tools used primarily for extracting fasteners, Carpenter’s Pincers are designed to grasp, cut and pull an object with significant mechanical force. The smooth, polished face of the bullnose" head curves to a cutting edge that has been ground with minimal bevel. This design allows the very top of a nail to be grasped virtually flush with the surface, and effortlessly extracted with a very high degree of leverage. Even embedded or deformed nails are removed easily. With a hardened striking face, it is superbly suited for most construction, concrete, roofing, fencing and fabrication work.
The fourth generation, family-owned company that makes the Carpenter’s Pincers was founded initially to make a single product – this very tool. Presumably, they’ve been perfecting it ever since. We applaud their dedication and recommend their pincers above any other. Made in Germany.
