KEIBA small side cutters, semi-flush type
Pro-Hobby Series

mit Wate These side cutters are the size of electronic pliers except that they can be opened very wide. They are fashioned from "Marutolloy 1", a special steel produced by Kobe Steel to the specifications of KEIBA from CR-v70c chrome-vanadium steel with a somewhat higher carbon content. After forging at KEIBA the steel is subjected over a period of 14 hours to a special heat treatment regime. The result is a steel which is both tough and hard and which can readily be ground to a good cutting edge — just the material for making high-quality pliers.
Semi-flush type
Suitable for up to 2 mm thick copper wire and for other softer metals up to 0.8 mm thick
Handles with moulded plastic grips

KEIBA Side Cutters High Grade Series
KEIBA Side Cutters from the High Grade Series have the lightest, smoothest action of any pliers out there, because of the use of a brass bearing plate in the pivot between the two arms. The black plastic coating on the grips provides an excellent grip. The forged parts of the pliers are subjected to an elaborate hardening and tempering process in a computer controlled kiln. The result is very hard working faces on the special alloy steel, while reducing the tendency of hard steels to be brittle, to guarantee a long service life.
