WW2 barb wire/razor wire cutter.

Recommended Posts

Picked one of these up at a flea market today.

Markings has 1945 & 256 just below the cutting area.

Not sure if it's Canadian, American etc, of origin.

It looks just like this picture below, but the one I got is in mint condition.

Not even a speck of rust.

Anybody have any info on this cutter would be a great help, & thanks in advance.

That's good for you Snake, but it does not help in my search for what I purchased today.

These cutters are 11 inches in length when the handles are folded, 3 inches wide, & almost 1 inch thick.

I'm quite sure it has some sort of history behind it to talk about with military buddies.

One thing for sure they don't make cutters like this nowadays.

The real question is, how do they work? The problem with a lot of the older special use military tools is that they were sort of meant to be a one or two use throwaway device. I have a Vietnam era pair of cutters that were given to me by a friend. They are basically side cutting bolt cutters though and only a little lighter than Snake's fencing pliers.

The handles do extend by swinging out, like a multi tool , knife file, etc, would.

I've cut 1.5 16ths metal rods with this cutter more than 2 dozen times & everything seems to be holding fine,

Cutting the rods like butter. Fence wire was a breeze to cut.

The tool is really great as was the price which I paid $12 Ye Ha !

I may have to start looking out for a pair for my light bug out bag. I figured that if they worked they would cut pretty easily seeing how they are compound jointed. I love a well made tool that is light, efficient and well made. Some of the stuff made over the years has been great and some barely better than trash.I will definatly be on the look out for one of these.

I did another test with these British Cammando cutters VS my 18 inch bolt cutter 1/2 hour ago.

The BC cutters did just about the same things the 18 inch bolt cutters would do.

Over all length the BC cutters are 2/3 the size & about 2/3 if not all most just a tad over the 1/2 weight mark of the bolt cutters.

I'm thinking the BC cutters would make a great piece of gear added to my BOB ( Bug Out Bag ). Like you said Danm.....

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
