I could not believe what could be accomplished with such a simple tool.
When my husband decided to select his own tools and install the backsplash in our kitchen himself, no one was more skeptical than I....the picture says it all. This tool was an excellent choice.

Solid
This is a solid set of nippers. I've used it on ceramic floor tile and it comes in handy to get the right fit on some of the odd shapes you may encounter. (Particularly around the bath tub and toilet flange). It took a little bit to get used to as far as how much you can snip at a time. Best advice is go slow and take a little bit at a time. If you try to do too much at once you likely won't get the cut you wanted.

No better than my old tile nipper...
Bottom Line: no force improvement and no better than my old tile nipper Much longer version: I have a non-compound tile nipper that I have used many times over the past decade. It can be difficult at times to nip with precision, or ease. I assumed that a compound version would be easier to use in terms of force required, and more precise because I could back off on the strength and focus on the angles and precision. Unfortunately, that is NOT the case w/ this compound tile nipper. First and foremost: I noticed no "ease in use" compared to my non-compound nipper. I expected these to require far less strength to break through tile, but they did not. Note that I did not use any sort of gauge, meter, or force measuring test to determine how much force was actually required for precise comparison. But since I could not notice any difference AT ALL between this nipper and my old one, on the same piece of ceramic tile - multiple cuts, multiple angles - I am left only with the conclusion that there is no increased mechanical advantage with this compound nipper. Because the force required was exactly the same as my old version, precision was no better. Some cuts / nips were good, some were not. Finally, the carbide cutting tips are separated by almost twice the distance when closed compared with my old nipper. Maybe this doesn't make a difference as they did still cut through tile, but I felt like it was another contributor to its overall average performance - especially when coupled with its total lack of force improvement. Other than being fairly sturdy, and looking fancy, these are a disappointment. If you are buying a nipper, save the extra money for something else.

    Not very accurate to nip small penny tiles. It would shatter them most every time. This product probably works excellent for other tiles but I wouldn’t know.

            Problems cutting glass tiles in that the glass tiles typically shatter unless you cut the tiles with the nipper under water ( like in a sink filled with water)
