• Can be side, end or diagonal types. • Side cutters have a cutting blade on one side only and are available in long-, curved- and short-nose types. • End cutting nippers have cutting blades on the end and are used to make sharp, clean cuts close to the surface on wires, bolts and rivets. • Diagonal cutters have two cutting blades set diagonally to the handle. They offer leverage when pulling cotter pins and are used by mechanics and electricians for general cutting. • Some cutting pliers are made with a spring in the handle to open automatically after each cut.
