Very good but not perfect
The cutters are very nice with the exception of the very tip. For example, I can't cut the very thin wire you see in the picture unless I squeeze very tightly. The very tip doesn't make contact without a lot of force. Additionally, one knife tip slightly extends past the other. Note that I am zoomed in very close and most people would never notice these small imperfections. The rest of the tool is very, very nice. There is no play or slop in the joint and it opens and closes effortlessly. It cuts extremely well - unless it's very thin wire at the very tip of the knives. If I lost these I'd replace them with the exact same model. I'm just being nitpicky because they're Kleins.

    These are good pliers for cutting small gauge wire, thin screws and small nails up to 8D finish nails. The opening and closing of these pliers is smooth and easy. The grip appears to be a simple red plastic slip on grip but the description say that they are plastic-dipped; not sure what the difference is. In the past, I have had trouble with some grips that are designed this way slipping off. Because they are small and have a tapered nose, they are good for getting into tight spots and being able to cut wires close. They are not insulated. They are made with high quality steel - induction hardened for durability so they shouldn’t chip or break and should have a long life. They are good pliers but not exceptional. So far, I have not had grip slippage with these pliers. These will be good for a lot of uses and will be good functional all-purpose pliers.

    I think the quality of the Klein tool is not what it used to be. I’ve been using this tool for 40 years, probably have had 6 or more, this one is not anywhere near the quality of past Klein 6 inch cutters.

        Perfect quality cutter
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The red handled diagonal cutters I have in my tool box now are as perfect as when my late father purchased them 30 years ago. Although my father took care of the tools he used in his plumbing and electrical business, never the less this pair of cutters have withstood much cutting abuse and still cut perfectly. The handles clean up with just a light rubbing alcohol cloth.
