Excellent high leverage diagonal cutters. They have bright orange handles to make locating the easy, Handles have large molded stops to prevent your hands coming in contact with live circuits, and are insulated to 1000 volts (meets ASTM F5105 and IEC 60900). This requires testing at 10kV for a 10:1 safety factor. I feel very safe using these cutters. They cut through large wires easily and are easy on the hands. Wonderful tool!

These cutters are NICE. Definitely heavy duty and high quality and fits my hand perfectly (I do have big hands). I’ve cut everything from metal clothes hangers to heavy and thin gauge speaker wires. I wanted to see if it would not only cut thick things but even fine (hair-like) stands of wire. So far it has passed the test with flying colors. Klein has always been a good company with quality products.

These pliers are sharp with good leverage. I was able, with one hand, to cut through a # 10 steel nail pretty easily. The cutter is designed to allow you to cut pretty close to flush with a surface. I was also easily able to cut through a 14-2 with ground piece of Romex . The insulated handles are textured for improved grip.They are guarded on the ends to keep your hands from slipping from the insulated grip. The hinge rivet, securing the two halves of the pliers, is pretty tight fitting. This makes the cutting edges more precisely aligned, but stiffens opening and closing the pliers.

This is simply put the best pair of diagonal cutting pliers I have ever used. They cut through nails, screws, wires, cables, small bolts like butter. In fact, in a head to head nail cutting contest, they outperformed my beloved Channellock 449s despite being 1.5” shorter, and even the Irwin NWS German rebrands with the patented powerslot compound leverage technology. Those pliers each have nice features of their own. The Channellocks have a long contoured grip for extra extra leverage in the most demanding applications, while the Irwin’s are extra slim and extra light. But as far as raw performance is concerned, nothing beats these Kleins. They are simply the best diagonal cutting pliers i have used. This pair comes with another distinguishing feature to boot: an uber comfortable insulated grip with knuckle guards rated to 1000V meeting ASTM F1505 and IEC60900 requirements for safe use around live wire electrical applications provided proper safety precautions and procedures are adhered to.

I had the opportunity to evaluate these great side cutter(diagonal). They hold up well with extended use. The handles are over-molded and comfortable. The cutting edge is very durable and cuts through 12 and 14 GA Romex wire with little effort. The 8" size takes advantage of greater cutting force compared to hobby type 6" cutters. They are higher cost than hobby cutters but you will be happy you spent a little extra to avoid the aggravation of poor quality cutters. Highly recommend.
