Unique double jaw cable shear offers the ability to cut a larger diameter cable with a small, hand-held 8" cutter
The outer jaw is ideal for the fast cutting of wide diameter, plastic cable sheathing (great for battery and other electrical cables)
Cuts up to 3/4" battery cable
The inner or lower jaw is used to cut the copper metal in various cables and offers higher leverage cutting because of its placement closer to the axle providing greater power for cutting harder materials (especially metals)
This "shear-action" of the cutter provides a swift, clean cut that is ideal for copper or aluminum cable (not for steel)
Features ergonomic, PVC coated handles for improved cutting leverage
8" overall length

I've used these shears on up to 1/0 aircraft grade cable and they haven't lost a step at any time. Matco-branded Knipex (made in Germany), so they've got great build quality & finish. Cuts wire with a minimum of squishing.
