Cutters Cutters
We carry a full line of Knipex and Xuron tools in addition to a house brand of inexpensive pliers.
Knipex makes the best pliers and wire cutters we've used. For more information about Knipex including warranty information and personal insights read "About Knipex".
We are Knipex and Xuron distributors so we are happy to supply any tool made by Knipex or Xuron.
Beginners: you need one plier in each hand to weave chainmail.
If you don't know where to start we recommend 2 TheRingLord Brand wide nose pliers. For tighter or smaller weaves (20g or thinner wire) we also recommend 2 TheRingLord brand chain nose pliers. With these 2 types of pliers you should be able to get started on almost any rings. For really hard materials like 14g stainless or titanium skip straight to the Flat Nose Knipex 200 series or our Mod pliers.
* Please Click for the Detailed Explanation of the Plier Recommendation Data
The information listed for recommendations for pliers is specific to certain criteria we used. Please read the linked to page before using this data for your selection. We do not guarantee this data - it is a reference based on 1 persons testing! There are too many variables like technique, experience, hand size, hand strength, ring size, weave etc. Its simply not possible to list the exact plier that YOU should use for all projects. The best we can do is given you data to consider before you purchase.
