You can se different types of cut wire pliers from my collections.

The big one on the middle are Italian, the last one on the right side are German. All others are Austro-Hungarian KuK. All are from WW1, Isonzo front- Soška fronta.

Regards, Franko

Hi Franko

Thanks for showing us your collection of wire cutters.

You have a very broad collection of militaria which is very interesting.

Thanks for broadening our minds on subjects are not very often highlighted.

Cheers

Thanks for proper word- wire cutters!
It is true that my collection is broad why when there are so many interesting items.
I hope you are not bored with the display of military items that are not directly related to guns and other weapons for which this forum is dedicated.

Franko

Hi Franco

Your posts are never boring.

Its good to see something a little different from time to time.

I would think most of the members here would have an
interest in Militaria.

Please keep them coming :thumb:

I find it interesting that the German tool is the model for nearly all "modern" bolt cutters in the USA. The ones on the left are similar to several types of US gripping/locking pliers.

I've got a set of 1918 marked US wire cutters, they are the same general principal as the German, and about 18" long. I'd love to get my hands on an Italian set WW I or II.
