Checklist For Pinchers

Fields of Application
  • Nippers (also called pinchers, biting pliers or edge pliers) are used topull out nails and to nip off or twist wire.
  • Another, rather unusual, field of application is the deformation of objects. Glassblowers, for example, use the nipper to deform the various glasses, vases and the like.
Material and Size
  • Pinchers are basically made of stainless steel. Chrome-plated or hardened pincers are protected from rust and therefore more robust, but also more expensive.
  • There is often a plastic handle protector on the handles.
  • The standard size of pincers is 20 cm long, 5 cm wide and a depth of 2 cm. For home use, this size is also quite sufficient.
Purchase Criteria
  • High stability and good power transmission due to a balanced weight ratio facilitates the work to be done.
  • A handle guard provides additional comfort and protects the hands.
  • Inexpensive models cost about €10, expensive nippers cost over €30.
