Designs and finish of cutter: Surgical finish stainless steel with TC inserts – suitable for appropriate sizes of hard wires. Can be used for appropriate sizes of cuttable plate. Also for cutting fish hooks! Industrial finish – strong and cheaper than surgical finish, but not long lasting due to corrosion.
