Description:
Munn & Co.- patent attorneys

"This invention relates to a pair of nippers, the movable jaw of which is secured to one end of a lever, the other end of which is acted upon by a toe attached to the inner end of the appropriate handle .in such a manner that a great leverage is effected, and the operation of the nippers in cutting wire or other articles is materially facilitated. The stationary jaw is secured to the end of its handle by a dovetail and screw, so that the same can be readily taken off for the purpose of sharpening, or that it can be replaced when worn out. A suitable set screw prevents the cutting edges of the two jaws from overlapping, or from being forced too close."

Subsequently improved by patents 209,677, 294,034 & 419,667.
