Our wire mesh and netting cutter, also known as an aviation cutter, is ideal for cutting wire up to 1.6mm thick. It can also cut sheet metal up to 1.2mm thick. The tool has a scissor action using mechanical leverage to generate the cutting power. The cutter also has a spring to automatically return the tool to the open position after each cut.

For heavier mesh (with a thicker wire than 1.6mm), we recommend using our large diagonal wire cutter for wire up to 3mm thick.


  • Product: High quality hand cutting tool.

  • Finish: Steel tool with plastic handles and rubber grip.

  • Features: Comfortable grip, easy to use scissor action, generates mechanical leverage to cut through wire.

Name* Product Question*

Are the fence pliers suitable for cutting 13mm x 13mm 19 gauge wire mesh fencing?

Thank you for your enquiry.

The Fence plier is suitable for cutting 19 gauge wire mesh. If you are only planning to use this product to cut 19 gauge wire mesh, I would suggest using the wire mesh and netting cutter as it will be easier to use.

I need to snip 3" wide strips of your stainless 6mm welded mesh.

Is this tool OK and does it spring open between cuts?


Thank you for your enquiry.

Yes, this product would be suitable to cut the 6mm welded stainless mesh and yes it does spring open between cuts.

Hi, I'm looking to buy wire netting 13mm. Which of your tools should I consider for cutting the netting?

Thank you for your enquiry.

The tool to use for cutting galvanized wire netting would be the Aviation cutter.

Delivery Information

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

We are processing and dispatching orders as normal, and orders are usually dispatched either the same day or the next Working Day. Due to high pressures on all courier networks, some delays and split deliveries may be possible (please allow up to 2 Working Days for Express Deliveries and up to 4 Working Days for Standard Deliveries, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays). A slightly longer lead time may apply to certain postcodes, but this will be made clear in the Delivery Options at the Checkout. 

Having anticipated short supplies of goods at the beginning of the year, we have filled our warehouse with stock. Whilst a certain product may be out of stock on our website, we will have an alternative option available which will be in stock – please feel free to ask our live chat agents for alternatives if you cannot find a suitable product for your application.

We may find that over the next few days or weeks that the speed of service we take pride in providing may be delayed slightly, either due to the requirement for staff members to self-isolate, or due to the pressures on the courier networks. Should this issue arise, we will do our very best to keep you fully informed, and rest assured that we will do everything possible to dispatch and deliver your order. If we could ask that you bear with us that would be very much appreciated, especially in the case of potential delivery issues. Some delivery delays may be unavoidable, as all UK courier networks are at full capacity due to  unprecedented levels of deliveries, combined with a potential shortage of drivers due to self-isolation requirements.
