We can work with various tools, and the differences between below-average, standard and high-quality are mainly in the details. In the end, details matter when working with hand tools, whether you're a professional or a DIYer.

Combination pliers by Wiha
Z 05 0 06_160 (26720) are combination pliers that are 160 mm long, they are also known as needle nose pliers and are excellent for gripping, handling and cutting cables and wires.
Combined pointed pliers’ type Z 05 1 09_200 (35462) are 200 mm long. They are very similar to the previous pliers, however, their tip is bent by about 40°. They are equally suitable for gripping, handling, and cutting off cables.
Cutting nippers by Wiha
Unique Wiha cutting nippers that save working time, as well as space in the work bag, are the installation pliers from the TriCut professional series known as TriCut Z14 1 06 (38552).
With a single tool, we can cut the cable, remove its sheath, and strip the individual cores. The bent head allows us to work even in limited space conditions, such as installation boxes in walls and the like.

Three Functions – One Tool
The specially angled plier head ensures that cables are stripped and skinned lengthwise along the cable and pliers, using an ergonomic approach that saves users from applying excessive force. The TriCut thus offers a decisive advantage over other pliers, especially in confined spaces such as junction and distribution boxes.
