Nip your next job in the bud with Maun’s range of Diagonal cutting pliers.

High-leverage side cutter design to cut hard wire with minimal effort.

Diagonal Cutting Pliers for Flush Cuts on Wire & Metal

Our diagonal pliers come in two different sizes (140mm and 160mm), and with two different handle options (zinc plated or soft plastic comfort grips).

Each engineered by our experts to tackle all sorts of wire and cable.

Cut. Nip. Snip. Designed for professionals who cut wires daily, our side cutting pliers are essential tools for engineers, electricians, and manufacturers looking for top quality tools.

We also have Small side cutters, Wire cutters, Heavy-duty wire cutters, End cutters, Fence wire cutters, Piano wire cutters, Steel wire cutters, and Metal cutting pliers. We have a range of combination pliers too, including our Side Cutter Parallel Pliers.

Our hand tools experts uniquely engineered these side cutters for high performance with minimal effort. Hardened cutting edges offer exceptional durability and a long service life.

Made in England and built to last, our nippers are created to cut all types of wire again and again. With compound-lever action for less effort, they’re ideal tools for cutting hard, dental, and piano wires. They are great for cutting springs and durable materials too, with comfortable handles that offer excellent grip. 

Our special diagonal cutters offer different jaw widths and openings designed for all kinds of capacities. High-leverage induction-hardened cutting tools. These products are good for electricians, but they are not insulated pliers. Maun are the UK experts in ergonomic and cleverly engineered hand tools, and this range of precision diagonal cutting pliers is no different.

Side cutter pliers create an indentation into the wire, which the tool wedges apart. The cutter edges of the jaws intersect the joint rivet at an angle (which is where it gets the name "diagonal pliers"). They shouldn't be used in a shearing action. Other common names include "a pair of dikes" in the electrical trade, as well as "nippers" and "snips".

Our tools have been in action for over 75 years; they’re masterpieces. It’s just another problem solved by Maun.
