Diagonal side cutters are pliers intended for the cutting of copper, brass, iron, aluminum and steel wire. The plane defined by the cutting edges of the jaws intersects the joint rivet at an angle or "on a diagonal" and are forged from heat treated high chrome steel and cut by indenting and wedging the wire apart. VDE Approved diagonal side cutters are certified to 1000V AC / 1500V.
