Knipex pliers are for technicians who won't settle for anything less than the very best. Once you hold these pliers in your hands, you'll know why the brand is praised all over the world for their high quality products. If you are looking for a pair of pliers to last a lifetime and do the job consistently without marring the material you are working on, invest in Knipex products and we guarantee you won't regret it.
You may have seen the Knipex Plier Wrenches in our catalog or in photos of the Sax ProShop technicians in action. Now we have a modified version of them available on our website: Knipex Parallel Swedging Pliers. They come in Small for most flutes, clarinets, and oboes, and Medium for saxophones. At the key fitting station in the Sax ProShop, these pliers have become the new favorite because they drastically cut down on the time it takes to swedge.
The Knipex Parallel Swedging Pliers do not slip even if you loosen your grip, they do not marr the instrument, and they do not give or flex as cheaper tools often do. One grip, one controlled crush of the tubes, and you're done. While swedging, you can squeeze and rotate the pliers around the rod at the same time as usual, but they are also powerful enough to squeeze and then rotate if necessary to reduce strain on the instrument.
The pliers are not cheap, but they are worth every cent.
