Is this the Knipex CoBolt Model # 71 12 200 bolt cutter, the version from around 2014, improved with the micro-structured cutting edge jaw blades?

Knipex apparently kept the same model number when they made this improvement to the jaws; the texture on the cutting edge is supposed to help keep the items you're cutting from sliding. A picture from the Knipex website shows the improved version. Thanks.

Answer: 
Have not noticed any difference. We've been using these cutters for about 3 years in our production area where the wire is thicker. The operators like these much better than the cutters they were using because of the spring-loaded handle and the comfort grip. The only problems we have is occasionally the spring will pop off and we must use the tip of the cutter on some products and the tip wears faster Read More

Answer: 
ForesterDriver is exactly right! The laser etchings are designed to keep the item you are trying to cut closer to the pivot points, thus making it easier to make the cut, putting less strain on your hands! It works especially well when you are cutting round objects such as nails.
Thank you for the question!
