The KNIPEX Tools LP patented, dual-hinge designed high-leverage diagonal cutter, TwinForce won a Pro Tool Product Innovation Award. The TwinForce achieves impressive cutting performance with two, welded, forged-in axles and precision-milled functional surfaces. This 7-inch tool cuts like a 10-inch tool; with its compact size it can fit into tight areas that a 10-inch tool cannot. The dual-hinged design of the KNIPEX TwinForce enables a high transmission of force, permitting cutting performance with considerably less strain, which is beneficial for cutting for long periods of time and for repetitive use. It requires approximately half of the strength to cut medium to hard wire when compared to other high-leverage diagonal cutters of the same size, even at the cutting tip.
