Originally a British design, these wire cutters found their way all over the commonwealth during the Second World War and were even produced locally. These have come from Australian army stores, some will have various Australian markings but there may be some British ones hiding in there. Apart from markings, there isn't much difference - they all cut wire! Made from tough steel and dating back to the 1940's they just need a bit of CRC and you'll be cutting through to the trenches in no time! Each pair can fold down when not in use so you can fit it in a pack easy and not run the risk of the blades opening.
Ideal for collectors or anyone looking to cut a bunch of number 8 wire!
