felco c3 cable cutter


Part No. C3

Swiss made FELCO® cutters are recognized around the world for their precision manufacture and cutting capabilities. Lightweight enough for overhead cutting yet strong enough for underwater work.
Plastic coated handles afford a firm, comfortable grip. All cutters tested before leaving the factory.

Cutting surface of blades is more than 10% harder than the C7 FELCO® Cutter, giving longer service life in heavy use. Length of cutting blades is same as the C7, this will allow user to “capture” cable or wire in cutting motion. Handle opening is only 4.5 inches, giving a very comfortable fit for even the smallest of hands. Softer spring allows easy closure of the tool, vastly reducing repetitive motion stress.

Capacity: 3 mm for high tensile strength wires and tire cords/cables.

Length: 7.5 in./ 190mm

Weight: 9.05 oz / 270g

Additional Info

High-strength Blades

Hardened and tempered blades for cutting the strongest of cables.

Triangular cutting action

FELCO’s® innovative triangular cut allows you to progressively cut cable wires and at the same time avoid squashing of strands. Thanks to this feature, it is generally not necessary to tie the cable before the cut.



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