Taper head cutters are very popular. The pointed head allows for increased cutting access yet has sufficient strength to avoid tip breakage when used within its capacity. Get into those small coils and trim away the sharp edges when you are doing wire work that will be worn next to the skin. The ergonomic handles are 4.8 inches, fitting the average hand much better than the smaller tools on the market and allowing for easier repetitive use without fatigue. Recommended for use on soft wire no larger than 18 gauge.
