Xuron cutters are made in the USA specifically for precision applications. Xuron uses modern technology to make cutters of induction hardened tool steel, which allows this small tool to do the job that would normally require much larger cutters.
This tool is used in our Riveted Ring class with Tracy Stanley.
This heavy duty flush cutter cuts maximum 12 gauge sterling silver and 8 gauge fine silver. It also cuts 1mm flat wire.
These flush cutters utilize a shearing cut, with the by-pass cutting edges slicing cleanly through the metal.
When the cutters are closed they will not look like they are aligned. This is because of the by-pass cutting edges. This reduces the mechanical shock delivered to the component and requires half the effort to cut a wire as compared to conventional cutters.

I reluctantly (due to price) purchased these after my last pair of cutters would no longer cut. I have to say I am in awe.. way better than any cutter I have used before, and worth the price.
