Wire Working Perfection: Bend AND Cut Wire with the Xuron® 485C Combination Cutter/Pliers

Bend and cut wire with the Xuron® 485C Combination Cutter/Pliers.

Have you heard about the Xuron®️️️ 485C Combination Cutter/Pliers? This precision tool offers you a full bypass shear cutter and a chain nose pliers in one tool. Jewelry and chainmaille artists, as well as crafters and hobbyists who frequently need both types of tools for a single task will find this a cost-effective option.

Use the #485C’s heat treated, high carbon steel blades to cut up to 12 gauge (2mm) soft wire. Because it’s a full bypass cutter, the wire isn’t compressed through the cut. It breaks clean, leaving you with a clean, square edge.

Bend and weave wire with its tapered chain nose pliers blades. Rounded outside edges form wire without damage or scarring. And because of the taper, you’ll have easy access into tight weaves and other restricted work areas.

Xuron® Tools are Designed with Your Comfort in Mind

Non-slip, ergonomic grips make the #485C Combination Cutter/Pliers comfortable to use even for long sessions of wire working. A sturdy spring keeps them open without too much resistance. And you won’t find much, if any, play in the joint. This makes those lateral twists easier when you’re bending wire.

Where can you find genuine Xuron® tools?

The Model 485C Combination Cutter/Pliers and all Xuron® tools are available through local craft and beading shops, as well as online through authorized suppliers of quality jewelry tools.
