Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product It works perfectly and doesn't knick the wires if you know how to use it. Great tool. All Klein tools are great! April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by They do what there made for I have used the cutter a handful of times and it's worked flawless. I'm a DIY type of guy and was easy enough to understand . March 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cable cutter Cuts cable jacket ok. Found it a little odd to get used to compared to the 20 tear old Greenlee brand cutter it replaced. With a little practice it should be just fine. March 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked better than I expected. I just finished installing AC all through my attic. I made well over 100 cuts using the same blade. Unfortunately I read some comments and made an 60 mile round trip to buy 2 extra blades which I never needed. It took 6 to 8 rounds with the handle to make each cut and never gave me any problems. For a DYI it is well worth the money. Just use light pressure and let the blade cut. Do not force the cut. October 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dissapointing I expect a lot from klein tools, efficeincy, design and most of all durability. Unfortunately, this set of bx cutters fails in the most important category, durability. My job requires me to shed at least 50 terminations a day, so I put tools through a lot of work. Usually, roto-split and greenlee cutters will last at least the duration of a single 9month project, yet this set had a shorter lifespan than the cuting wheel, what a dissapointment. March 25, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by quality stinks this tool is honestly a piece of junk to say the least. I have been through 5 of these yes that's right 5!!!. they kept breaking under warranty so id bring them back and home depot was nice enough to exchange them. I give home depot a lot of credit for doing that for me. my first one was great until I loaned it out and it came back with a broken blade and the screw fell out and the last 4 had similar issues. I even had one where the hexagon area where the blade locks into place and then you tighten the screw to hold it there. the hexagon area completely broke out. Klein really needs to fix these. I love the way it works and nobody else's works like theirs but it just fails epically. everything else I have had from them works perfectly. only other issue I have had from Klein tools is they like to grow legs and walk away when you are not looking.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of junk! I have no idea what has happened to Klein quality... I only got to use this for about 20-25 cuts, and the blade shattered. Before that, I twice had to pick up the hex nut/screw that had backed out. And that annoying rattle of the spinner handle...What a waste of money. Thank God that Home Depot refunded me for this trash. I'll get an Ideal or a Greenlee next... forget this one. July 12, 2013
