KNIPEX StepCut Cable Shears

The KNIPEX StepCut Cable Shears impress with significantly less effort when cutting cables. Wires or strands can be cut one after the other with the product’s stepped blades.

With the StepCut Cable Shears, KNIPEX makes it easier to cut single and multi-conductor cables made of copper and aluminium up to a diameter of 15mm (50mm²). Solid NYM cables can be cut easily and precisely up to a maximum of 5 x 4mm². The StepCut is not suitable for steel wire and hard-drawn copper conductors. The stepped blades, with a milled serrated edge on the front and a flat edge on the back, have been induction-hardened. The shears can cut wires and strands one after the other, thus reducing the effort required by up to 40%. The innovative step cutting allows for a clean cut without the cables being crushed in the cutting process.

The new KNIPEX StepCut is only 160mm long and therefore weighs relatively little. In addition, the ergonomic design of the handles enables an optimum cutting feel even with larger diameters. A pinch guard also prevents injuries; the bolted joint makes the cable shears precise and smooth-running. The StepCut is made of forged and oil-hardened tool steel of special quality; the cutting edges have been additionally induction-hardened.
