Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9 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 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 Awesome tool for awesome price I needed a tool that could cut brad nails easier than my wire cutters, and also something to cut the nails in electric gang boxes (so I could reuse the box) and had a dilemma, something not too big and not too small, not too cheap and not to expensive. This tool was just right. It cut through the brads like a knife through butter, and ate those nails for dinner (0.1" nail diameter roughly, and those u nails for electrical wiring too). Well worth the price. I'm glad I bought this tool and definitely recommend them for small jobs. April 30, 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
