The Memory Wire Cutters are designed for cutting memory wire and other hardened craft wire, making it ideal for beaders and crafters who need to cut a variety of materials. No special cutting technique is required - shearing action minimizes cutting effort and spring action returns the tool to its open position after cutting. Just place the material between the jaws at the desired location and squeeze the handles, which feature cushioned rubber grips for greater comfort. These Memory Wire Cutters cut memory wire easily and efficiently without pitting or quickly dulling. They are 5" (12.5cm) long and have comfortable grip handles that are blue.
