First, the German made, Knipex brand wire nippers are superior. An innovative lever action design reduces the force required for cutting by up to 60 %. The chrome vanadium heavy duty, oil hardened, forged steel blades can easily cut bolts or nails up to 1/8" in diameter or simply cut a delicate piano wire. There is nothing worse than a pair of dull nippers when a horse is caught in wire. We guarantee that this pair will not fail you in an emergency.
Second, the case is beautiful! It is made of Italian leather & hand stitched in the U.S..It is perfectly molded to house the Knipex, so the nippers will not bounce against your horse's shoulder while riding. The case attaches with 2 adjustable straps & the case can be mounted on either side of your saddle. We are confident you will be more than happy w this purchase.
