Bug Out Bag Companion: Knipex to Release 6″ CoBolt Cutters

The Knipex CoBolt Cutters article in our series, The EDC Tool Roll, continues to be one of the most viewed articles in that group. Read it here: The EDC Tool Roll: Knipex CoBolt Cutters

I guess the idea of a tool that is essentially a hand held set of compound bolt cutters is attractive to a lot of prepared citizens. Previously, the CoBolt Cutters were only available in 8″ and 10″ lengths but that is about to change. Knipex has announced that they will release a 6 1/4″ Mini CoBolt.

The Mini CoBolt Cutters will likely give up some leverage to the larger 8″ and 10″ models. It will take some testing to see if these can serve as a more compact option that are still suitable for bug out bag tasks.

    I look forward to your review. Curious if the smaller size will be reasonably functional.

    I don’t know about these. I am an underground miner and I constantly need cutters for chain-link fencing wire and #4 guage weld mesh. I have the 8″ version and I have not found them to cut any better than the comparable sized Klein lineman’s pliers (which also have the advantage of being pliers).

    Any idea on what the release date will be?
