Fencing Pliers

Combination Fencing Pliers Beekeepers require to maintain fences on some occasions, this combination tool is easily carried and will do most jobs involving staples, wire netting, nails and barbed wire.

They are known as fencing pliers or combination pliers, and will perform the following duties:-

Cutting wire or nails Hammering nails or staples
pulling out nails or staples stretching barbed wire
forming loops in wire crimping ferrules on to wire
twisting strands of wire.

They are easy to use and are readily obtainable. Prices vary from expensive to very cheap, I see no benefit in the most expensive ones and I think that the least expensive are perhaps false economy. The ones that I use were a middle of the road price and I expect them to last for many years.
