The cam-assisted action greatly reduces the effort required to cut through the cable.

Forged Aluminum handles
Lightweight, strong, and sturdy thanks to special aluminum alloys and advanced precision forging methods.



After cleaning, it is advisable to oil the tool so as to protect it from corrosion.
The oil will also unjam the tool.
