Klein recently came out with a new 160th anniversary edition side-cutting pliers, model J2000-9NECLX.
The new “limited edition” anniversary model is engraved with the American flag across its jaws, and features unique red, white, and blue Journeyman handles.
The 2000-series cutter blades can handle heavier duty materials, such as ACSR, screws, nails, and most kinds of hardened wire. Its high leverage design is said to provide 46% greater cutting and gripping power compared to other pliers designs.

Klein says that the handle can absorb the “snap” when cutting wire, and that the pivot is hot-riveted for smooth action and no wobble.
There’s a “USA Made” graphic on the opposite side of the jaws.

Although they should perform as well as Klein’s less adorned ordinary-looking side cutting pliers, these limited edition pliers are likely better suited as collectible pieces. Or use them as you would any other pliers, and enjoy the good-looking design until they get dirty or worn beyond recognition.
