Diagonal Cutter

Beaklike jaws and curved handles mark the diagonal cutter, specialized pliers for slicing through wire, nails, and screws. The jaws offset cutting edges, or knives are angled about 15 degrees from the plane of the handles, allowing flush cuts without scraped knuckles. Electricians rely on it for working in tight spaces.
