"From ergonomic to scissor-run or free-fall, Platinum Tools has it all. Made in the U.S.A., choose them separately or combine your choice with a cable splicer's knife and a durable leather belt pouch for a simple, convenient solution."

Ergo Electrician's Scissors (part # 10515C)

A total ergonomic design that is outside the box thinking. It will feel like it was custom made. The cushioned grip non-slip handle adds extra leverage for easy cutting, less wrist stress, and no pinch points. The professional installer's choice.

Leather Pouch, Knife and Scissors Kits

These kits provide simple solutions for the professional installer. Each kit includes a 6-inch nickel plated cable splicer's knife with a comfortable, non-slip grip, weighted handle, and your choice of scissors in a durable leather belt pouch.

Scissor-Run Scissors; 5-inch (part # 10517C)

An original favorite, this smooth cutting action, scissor-run design is excellent for cutting Kevlar®, foil, and wire. Cuts solid wire up to 16 AWG and stranded up to 12 AWG. Strips 19 and 23 AWG.

Free-Fall Scissors; 5-inch (part # 10518C)

The Free-Fall design makes it a true, security and telecom scissor. Hold the point of one blade straight up and the other at 180 degrees, and then let it drop; it free falls and stop ¼-inch from the point enabling the technician to use their fingertips to operate the snips.

Additional features of the new scissors and kits include:
