These Flush Cutters feature jaws which are angled and pointed so that they are nearly parallel to the handles which makes the cut to the side of the cutter (also know as Side Cutters). And it’s called a “flush cutter” because one side of the blade is flat and leaves a nice flat (flush) surface on the wire that you’re cutting off. These Flush Cutters are 5" (12.5cm) long and have handles that are blue. These are perfect for thin gauge wire. They are NOT suitable for cutting memory wire, flex wire or steel wire.
