British WWII Heavy Gauge Wire Cutter-This is a heavy duty/heavy gauge set of folding wire cutters which would have been used by the British engineers. It is made of solid steel, so it is quite heavy. It measures 10 inches long and 3 ½ inches in width. There is some slight rusting, and the pivots will need to be oiled, but overall, in good condition. There is a brown twine still attached to the tool. These would most likely date to 1942-1943. We have not attempted to cut anything with them, but we assume they work.
