The jaws of combination pliers are usually serrated to add friction when gripping, compressing, bending, and twisting various materials. The cutters, on the other hand, are normally used in cutting electrical and steel wires. Also referred to as linemen’s pliers and side cutters, they are used by different professions including electricians and hobbyists.
