Maxim Newmark.  Illustrated Technical Dictionary.  NY:  The Philosophical Library, 1944.

I have two German-made nippers.  No maker's mark on the first:

It does say "For Piano Wire."  Basically, spring steel.  Those jaws must be very well hardened.

The second pair says "For Hard Wire" and has a really cute logo of a cat playing with a ball of yarn.  Who would have expected such whimsy from a German tool maker?
