Nipper Wire Cutter has various names normally it is called as cutter, side cutter or lead cutter. It is normally used to cut wire or leads (legs) of components also they can be used to strip insulation off a wire.
I have see lot of students using strippers for cutting legs of components but that is a wrong way to do it as it damages the stripper as well as the cuts are not clean.
