The Xuron 2175B Maxi-Shear™ Semi-Flush Cutter is an extemely durable and versatile wire cutter that provides a blade by-pass cut instead of the usual edge-to-edge cut. It's tough enough for harnesses, cables and materials less than 1 mil. thick or high density work areas. This cutter is ergonomically shaped with non-slip Xuro-Rubber grips and glare eliminating black finish. It features a non-protruding, lifetime warranted flat spring, which provides an excellent feel without excessive spring tension.
