Every cutter has limitations. What can shorten a cutter’s life is the material used to make it, the degree of hardness, the length of the handles and especially, which material you are trying to cut. To overcome these limitations we’ve combined tungsten carbide steel cutting tips with military grade superior tensile-strength stainless steel. These “top of the line” cutters have comfortable, foam covered extra leverage handles, providing precise control and leverage. 13mm wide cutting edge and 6-1/2" long.
Narrow Flush End Cutting Plier – Guild Model #1027
Ready. Set. Snip.
You have replaced the plastic tubing in a compression rimless. Excess material is extending beyond the lens surface. Cutting the bushing down close to the lens will produce a tighter and stronger compression fit. Using a razor poses a danger to both fingers and lenses. Instead, reach for this plier to safely trim tubing. Rounded jaws prevent scratching the lens. 5mm wide head. Use only on plastic tubing.
Oblique Head End Cutting Plier for Hard Metals – Premium Model #2025
Play It Safe.
Years ago, all eyewear screws were made from soft “pot metal”. Ordinary cutters could do a sufficient job and last several years. Nowadays, you don’t know if you are going to be cutting a pot metal screw or a hard stainless steel screw. If your cutter is not tempered to be harder than stainless it will develop divots and ruin the cutting edges. To play it safe, use this end cutter to slice through any screw you encounter. The 22mm cutting edge is angled and tapered to a fine point. Made of tempered carbon stainless steel.
Oblique Head End Cutting Plier – Premium Model #2024
Cutters for soft metals can be scaled down and have the advantage of being able to get into tighter spaces on a frame. The head is tapered to a fine point. The smaller scale means, however, that the cutting edge is not appropriate for hard metals.
