16cm pliers suitable for millinery. Not huge and hard to handle but also not small jewellery pliers. Made from steel with a plastic handle, there are two types available.
Combination pliers are good for bending wire at a specific point. You may wrap the teeth with tape to stop them from cutting through the cotton covering.
Long Nose pliers are good for getting into tight spaces. Like when you need the help of pliers to sew a particularly stiff project or in a tight spot.
