Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Diagonal cutter I have been recently been purchasing tools as i will be going into the field of electricians. I have bought 3 different makes of diagonal cutters. The Klein diagonal cutter is by far the best one I've come across. Good grip, and very smooth cutting with very little effort involved. The other two that i purchased, a simple 14 gauge wire cable requires me to sometimes use both hands to cut the cable as for the Klein tool, very effortless. GREAT TOOL! February 27, 2007
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy cut pliers When you are working with wire, you don't want to fight with a pair of pliers to cut the wire. These pliers are great. They are shaped perfectly fot cutting wire. November 19, 2008

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cutting Tool I really enjoy the ease of cutting wire and the durability of this tool,Klein tools have always been a great buy and hold up well. February 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2nd pair in 16 years of service. I use these every day. I have my origanal set that I bought 16 years ago. I had to retire them about 8 years ago, because of the rubber handel were wearing off. I just lost a pair (hartbroken) going to buy another set. They are the best. I have had others but stopped using after a few weeks. Heading to Homedepot tomorrow to get another pair. January 17, 2014
