The “Beaver” Cleaver, so called because of its flexible, flat, beaver-like, v-groove fiber rest, is suitable for use with quick-term connectors and optimal for mechanical splicing. It provides a guide for variable cleave lengths from 5-20mm. The ceramic blades will perform over 6,000 cleaves before replacement is necessary. The score and snap function is easy to use and preferred by many installers.
