These dated WWII wire cutters were probably a commonly used tool for prison breaks, or making/mending fences. Measures 13 3/8” when extended. Handle is held together with 3 heavy duty rivets. Twine lanyard on each pair. Folds conveniently to 9 ¾” for a more compact storage. Jaws may show some signs of wear. Great show piece to add to your vintage tool collection.
