No electrician can be without a pair of cutters on site. They are a crucial tool to help you get the job done quickly, neatly and efficiently. We use CK Tools’ Combi Cutter 3 in our electrical training centre every day as they deliver a high quality finish and are durable too.

“You’ve got more than one tool in it,” our electrical trainer explains, “you’ve got side cutters, you can strip 1.5mm and 2.5mm cable (twin and earth, and singles), it’s got a 3.5mm face-plate screw shears and a bending facility to double over your conductors” as when you’re terminating into the screw terminations, it should have a good connection and the best way to do that is doubling the end over.

With so many functions, it’s easy to see why this tool is a favourite among many electricians and tradespeople. The CombiCutter3 is also VDE rated to protect you up to 1,000V. The handle provides a comfortable, rubberised grip, while the blades on the cutters themselves are sharp and precise.

“The CK CombiCutter3 blades have lasted the test of time in our centre, with years of use. We continuously re-buy them as they are a solid investment” our expert trainer says.

The Combi Cutters come in two sizes, the 160mm (pictured) and 180mm. The 160mm only have a 3.5mm shears (suitable for face-plates), whereas the 180mm have a 4mm as well, perfect for brass screws used on containment (plastic and steel conduit).

Although the 180mm have that extra facility to do brass screws, our trainers and customers prefer the 160mm cutters. “They are just the right size, a bit more dexterous to use and with the same performance!”

They are the perfect tool for everyday use on second fixing, covering a variety of facilities that ensure you will get the job done precisely and without wasting any time. They are so good, that our electrical trainers could not place a single fault on them.
