Cutter styles and wire ends:

  • Leaving a standard rise of metal on your wire is acceptable and indeed required in some particular jewellery/component casting or manufacturing
  • Bevel cutters require more cutting force and are therefore very durable
  • They leave a large pinch on wire ends

Semi flush, bevelled cutter
  • Slight bevel edge to cut thicker wire and leads
  • A fine nip would be left in the middle after the item has been cut
  • Semi flush cutters require less force and leave a small pinch

Super flush cutter
  • A precise thin bevel which leaves a unique small nip in the middle of the item being cut
  • Super flush cutters require minimal cutting force and leave almost no pinch

Full flush cutter
  • No nip cutters, perform like two razor blades coming together
  • Full flush cutters require the least amount of force and leave no pinch on wire ends
