    i am looking for 160-180mm long tool so that means the cutting is about 60-80mm besides 100mm that go in the palm of your hand

    ill have a look on website u posted thx


    Edit: something like this but with a cutting edge

    The design will depend on what you want to cut.

    To me a common hose cutter fits that description but they don't make dead flush cuts on one side.

    it may not exist. It's hard enough to keep the blades of an ordinary flush cutter coming together nicely, when they only extend a few mm from the pivot point. Now you want to extend that distance away from the pivot, it is going to require more bulk of metal to keep from flexing, and then you are left with traditional sidecutters:

    I can imagine what you want but a cutter has to apply a lot of force. Side nippers give you a mechanical advantage of maybe 10 or 20 to 1. Extend the nose and you are changing the leverage to maybe 2 or 3 to one. All that force has to be carried in the length from the pivot to the blades, and that gets bulky. Basically, what strantor said.

    I believe you want a transverse end cutter.
    It's designed for clipping small copper wires flush on a PCB.
