Quit Cutting Cable With Two Hands

The Klein High-Leverage Cable Cutter uses a new knife design grips the cable and allows for precision shearing on 4/0 aluminum, 2/0 soft copper, 100-pair 24 AWG communications cable. You still won’t want to use these cutters with steel or ACSR, but that’s expected.

Klein High Leverage Cable Cutter

The Klein design team developed the 63225 cutters for effective one-handed use, particularly helpful in confined spaces.

Klein engineers the High-Leverage Cable Cutter from US-made forged steel. Additionally, the cutters have been through-hardened, as opposed to case-hardened, for a more durable cutting surface. Finally, a hot-riveted joint provides a smooth action with no handle wobble.

Klein 63225 Cutter Thoughts and Pricing

This Made-in-the-USA tool looks solid. Klein’s been doing this a long time, so we don’t find it odd to see gradual improvements to existing tools over time. The increased leverage and inclusion makes them just as strong, though they shaved off some length from the 63050 cutters.

You can find the Klein High-Leverage Cable Cutter anywhere that Klein Tools are sold. It retails for $34.97, and it comes with Klein’s Lifetime warranty. Klein hand tools are made in the USA.
