Knipex CoBolt S compact bolt cutterDespite its smaller size, the 6-1/4-inch long Knipex CoBolt S compact bolt cutter provides serious cutting power. It should easily cut through bolts, nails, and rivets up to 11/64-inches in diameter. In addition to its compact design, the cutter has a slim head to provide better access in confined spaces.

The CoBolt S bolt cutter uses a strong lever action that requires less user-effort when using the tool.

Below the joint, you get a gripping surface for pulling wires as small as 3/64-inches. The cutter features laser-cut edges on the forged, oil-hardened blades. The CoBolt S also has induction-hardened cutting edges with a hardness of approximately 64 HRC for cutting thin hard wire, screws, and springs.
