I was looking at the wire cutters just because I am a tool nut and an electrician and wanted to see what's new. When I noticed this pair of pliers that has the right combination of uses all in one tool.

This is my 2nd Linesman pliers. I bought this one on a whim because I had a big job to do. I could barely cut a 14 ga wire with my first pliers. The leverage on this pliers allowed me to cut two 12 ga at the same time. It's comfortable in the hand making it less tiresome doing big jobs.
I read a review on the poor stripper that nicks the wire. I found that if you squeeze it once the insulation comes off with out nicks. Yes it does SLIGHTLY nick the wire if you twist the pliers, but I never had the wire break off. I only used the stripper on solid wire so I couldn't rate it on stranded wire.
The hole for bending to loop the wire works. I didn't use the crimper.

I used it to cut 10/2 electrical wire and then strip it, worked great. Extremely strong and durable. Stripping the wire couldn't have been easier and it left no marks.

Strong, sharp cutters/crimpers. Added it my tool pouch for electrical jobs around the house.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BobSCA Stripper damages wire
The stripper is useless. I tried stripping a 12 AWG solid wire in the slot marked 12 AWG solid. The wire was left with an obvious nick at the strip point, so severe that I had to double check that the wire was indeed 12 AWG. Subsequently bending the wire made it snap at the strip point. I even tried the same wire in the 10 AWG solid slot which also created a nick, but less severe.

I bought these to do some electrical work in my shop after moving into my new house and not being able to find my old pliers that have been packed away during the move. These are great pliers at a great price. The shop is hot and humid and I have not had any issues with rusting like another reviewer stated.
