tatkräftig / pliers

tatkräftig
tatkräftig

"tatkräftig" enables the application of high forces. Featuring handles that - unlike conventional pliers - open torwards the front, the construction responds to the anatomic conditions of the human hand. Between thumb and index finger the hand is capable to spread widely and to generate high powers. The forces are transmitted to the jaws by a lever ending in a guidance in the lower handle.
