Not all cutting edges are the same. The 8-inch Channellock 338 Diagonal Cutting Plier uses precision machined knife and anvil style cutting edges to ensure perfect mating and superior cutting edge life. Channellock uses high carbon C1080 steel for superior performance on the job, and an electronic coating for ultimate rust prevention. It's completed by Channellock's iconic blue handle, which is both comfortable in your hand and easy to spot in your tool bag.

(view larger).

The 338 can cut piano wire (0.063- to 0.091-inch thick), hard wire (0.047- to 0.091-inch), medium hard wire (0.047- to 0.091-inch), and soft wire (0.162-inch maximum diameter).

Channellock utilizes precision-machined knife and anvil style cutting edges to ensure perfect mating and superior cutting edge life. While most manufactureres use two sharp edges that can become misaligned and lose their cutting effectiveness, Channellock's knife and anvil cutters give you proper cutting edge alignment for a clean cut every time. The edge is also laser hardened for unprecedented edge life.

5Channellock 338 8-inch Diagonal Cutting Pliers
By Amazon Customer
After reading many positive reviews of Channellock products I decided to buy these.

I wanted pliers with good steel and heat treating so the cutter edge will last better than the generic cutters I bought for my first tool box.
Those generic mini pliers rusted and froze up too quickly.

These 8-inch channellocks offer better leverage and they came to me with a well oiled hinge and marked Made In USA too. I am confident these will hold up to a lot of use on all types of electrical wire. The plastic trays for my Stanley sockets have instructions showing where to use cutters like these to open them so they can be snapped closed afterwards.

5It slices, it dices!
By MoonBandit
These are the best dikes I've ever used by far. It's one of those tools you don't want to short change. I have cut things with these that sounded like a bad idea at the time. Most other cutters would be chipped or dulled by now with what I've put these through. But these things are legendary. I'd be willing to bet they're just as good as a similar tool from the expensive red brand.

If you're trying to carefully put together a really nice tool set with quality stuff, or you're out for the best bang for the buck replacement, give these a try. They might be the last ones you ever buy.

5Nice Feel and Nice Cuts
By Amazon Customer
Misplaced my cutters I have had for 30 years. Hoped buying new ones would cause the old ones to show up. Not so far!

Anyway, great quality and after one days use, turned around and bought a second pair for my son.
