To ease your choice we are stating the total and the jaw-lengths as well as the head-dimensions of each version.
3 standard shapes: “flat” – “round” – “half round / pointed”, available in different diameters and dimensions with all pointed versions, but also with some flat-nosed versions. Fine points for delicate jobs, heavier points for more leverage. For an easier choi ce all dimensions are shown against the individual models.
