needle nose pliers
Needle-nose pliers are most commonly used for bending angles in wire or narrow metal strips. They have a sharp wire cutter near the pivot. Like many other types of pliers, they are available with spring openers, which are spring-like devices between the handles that keep the handles apart – and the jaws open – unless you purposely close them.
When purchasing needle-nose pliers check that the jaws and cutting blades meet evenly. If you hold them up to the light, you should not be able to see any diagonal chinks of light coming though.
