Product Details

Able to cut cable up to 1” in diameter, these insulated lineman’s cable shears from Knipex are a durable heavy duty tool. The handles are plastic dipped to be 1,000 V insulated according to ASTM F 1505 standards, while the shanks are constructed from high-strength aluminium. Forged out of vanadium electric steel for extra strength and sturdiness, the precision ground, hardened blades are suitable for cutting copper and aluminium cables containing single and multiple wires, achieving a smooth, clean cut with no deformation or crushing. This can be done using low handforce, thanks to the favorable lever ratio and innovative blade geometry utilized in the design of Knipex 95 17 500. Short in length at only 20”, this tool also has low weight to make it highly functional. An excellent addition to a lineman’s tool set, these cable shears offer long-lasting utility and maintained performance, as well as safety.
