Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cutters are not what the picture shows I purchased these to make some cuts to 150lb wire that sat flush to a surface. The picture online shows the cutting edge extending to the end of the pliers, which is not the case. They stop around 1/8" away and then take a 45 degree angle to the end of the pliers (see picture). This makes cutting anything that sits flush to a surface very difficult since it falls within that void. If you are looking to cut things that have room around them, then these do a fine job but for the specific task I purchased them for, they do not work. December 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greats pair of Wire Cutters! I purchased these to remove an old wire fence. It did a great job cutting with little effort. It worked better than using the wire snips that I was using. Not bad for the $9.00 spent. Well worth it. October 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Heavy Duty. Clean cuts. Solid product I got these for bicycle repair. Cuts cable and housing better than any cutters or snips I had. Great product at amazing price. April 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small yet powerful wire cutters A friend of mine had one of these cutters and after using them one weekend I had to get me one. They are small and comfortable fit in my large hands yet they don't look or feel cheap, small or flimsy. They are strong & powerful. January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy Wirecutters Needed to custom cut some decorative fencing to a special shape. These cutters were up to the task and easy to use. Just like their bigger versions called bolt cutters, they easily cut through the material. January 15, 2014
