These shears cut soft stranded cable (e.g., SOOW 13/4 or SJOOW 12/3 cord) with minimal force due to high leverage and very sharp blades.  The blade edges are hardened for durability allowing hundreds of cuts.  The wire lodges into the notch and facilitates single-step cutting.  The long tang into the grips provide cutting efficiency.  Its blades are made of high carbon alloy steel from Japan and are infused with molybdenum and Vanadium through a proprietary manufacturing process to harden (Rockwell Standard HRC 58-60) the cutting blades needed for cutting electrical cord / wire.  One blade sports micro-serrations to prevent slippage.  These Electrical Shears are an electrician's choice scissors for performance and durability.

The sharp and hardened blades on these shears are meant for hundreds of clean cuts on soft stranded cables thus reducing hand fatigue.  They can also strip wire, cut insulation, cable ties, and a variety of soft materials to facilitate electrical installation.  A crimping function is provided in-between the handles. The outer edges of the blades incorporate a file with a series of sharp, parallel teeth to file off burrs from electrical boxes or for smoothing rough surfaces.  These excellent shears are currently being used in electrical, data communications, cabling, cable and harness assembly, fiber optic, and custom cabling industries.

For longer shears with slightly higher cutting leverage please see ATi-817 (6-1/8 inch / 156 mm, smaller notch with more leverage, serrated edge).

Special Features:
  • Very sharp cutting edges to easily cut soft stranded cable up to 18mm OD (e.g., SOOW 12/4 or SJOOW 10/3)

  • Strip insulation, cut insulation, cable ties, soldering wick and crimp terminals (0.5 - 4mm2)

  • File and clean burrs in punch outs holes on electrical boxes

  • Cut copper sheet up to 0.5 mm thick

  • Micro-serrated blade for non-slip cutting (one blade only)

  • Non-serrated blade can be sharpened to extend life

  • Extended tang for durability and efficient force transfer

  • Handles made of Nylon with 30% fiberglass & TPR over-molded

  • Ambidextrous

A true electrician's scissors
I had purchased a pair of these electrical shears few months ago after using another brand for some time which used to wear out quickly and right when I had a new project I was looking at a dull pair. I decided to give Ascend Tools' pair a try. These are sharp in all the right places. They offer a rather truncated cutting surface, so the leverage on what you're cutting is excellent. The notch at the base of the blade cuts through wire without moving it and it is great for scoring the cable jacket and removing it without damaging the conductors. This is probably the nicest feature of these scissors. The ergonomics are great too. Occasionally I crimped wire and it worked fine. I haven't used the outer notch to remove burrs on gang boxes but it seems like it will do the job. A holster would be a nice addition to carry it in the field safely.

I was extremely impressed with these shears. The moment you open these shears, it is very obvious to tell that they are made of quality materials. They fit comfortably in your hand and remain comfortable through extended use; the grip is second to none! This product is extremely versatile and has all of the features you would expect for working with wires without a bunch of extra useless bells and whistles.

Sharp shears cut thick wire too
Working for UofOklahoma I do a lot of building maintenance. I have had these shears for 6months & they still feel like they are new. I have used them to cut 4 conductor 14 guage soft wire & they do a great job.

Great wire shears stays sharp
I tried them to cut low voltage wire. Rated upto 14/3 low voltage soft wire but I cut S00W 12/4 wire and it cut it easily. Stays sharp for a long time if not abused.
