Characteristics of general purpose, high-quality pliers & cutters
The family of universal pliers, cutters & spanners includes a number of special-purpose tools that are designed in such a way that they have flexible fields of application.
Besides the classic combination pliers, this group of tools includes such special-purpose tools as snipe-nose or telephone engineer's pliers, designed for specific applications. Thanks to their offset jaws, they will penetrate hard-to-reach spaces to access hidden cables in phone junction boxes – and these tools really belong in everybody's toolbox or tool trolley.
VBW tools are made in Germany: starting with specially selected steels, continuing with the design process, making the tools & dies in our tool shop, forging the blanks, through to machining, hardening and surface finishing, applying the multi-component handles and, finally, packaging and warehousing the finished tools.
