From Klein Tools, the 6-in. Long-Nose, Side-Cutting Pliers are made of the finest U.S. steel alloy. They are forged, precision machined, hardened and carefully tempered for maximum strength and faultless performance. The long nose pliers with side cutters have knives that meet at the hinge first and then meet at least one-half of the knife length. This precise knife-closing design increases knife life and facilitates resharpening. Pliers are individually adjusted to meet performance standards far exceeding application requirements - ensuring that nothing less than outstanding quality ever carries the Klein name.
