    This is a really nice cutter for the price, you can't expect something else, it's not the Facom line, but again, for the price, it is really good you have to open it real far, sometime, you have to use both hand for the big cable (like 6mm²), but all and all, it is not bad. none really expect i should have order 2 or 3 for the coworker ;) for that ...

    Works fine for copper wire. It's material is weak for steel cutting. A good steel cord cutter cost between 15-20 dollars in Brazil and seems to be weaker and smaller, but still works better. Parts move away when you try to cut steel cord. Parts aren't tight joined. Cape handle is thinner then expected. A spring would be nice. Not suitable for stripping ... Read more

    Cuts smoothly, even through thick steel wires. Very easy to use. No stain on the hand after cutting, because it makes the job so much easier. The handles could have padded with better, thicker coating. If you ever struggled with a regular cutter, this is the tool for you! I never thought cutting thick metal wires would become such an easy job. Even ... Read more

    As pictured, it is a nice bright yellow so you don't loose it (my last pair was black, on the floor you couldn't see it!). I use it to snip small cable ties and computer wires, it handles this with ease. The spring in it is a bit useless, you need to manually pull apart the gripping action after each cut to open them back up. What it needs is a stronger ... Read more

    Cuts through copper wire like hot knife on butter. a little smaller than I expected but does the job for little wires especially if you have many wires to cut. It is very sharp. Stripping is a bit tricky but you could get used to doing it after sometime (although it's not supposed to be used as a stripper, there are special tools to do that). DX could ... Read more

    Cuts well Very good build quality (especially for the price) Cuts through steel quite thick that I wouldn't have expected it to cut through. Nothing it does the job. We will see in time if it will be rusty all stop cutting well but until the it does the work you want A very cheap and useful thing. For cutting electrical wires up to 4mm is perfect. In ...

    good yarn, and cut, ease of use, thick cut cables easily. good finish. a little heavy. not return spring. must be handled with care. the rubberized coating could be improved recommend for those who need a wire cutter and robust and with large cutting capacity, and who need to cut thick cables with ease. Despite being a little heavy and not suitable ... Read more

    Very sharp. These make cutting wire feel like butter. The cutting edge is beveled curved. because of the sharp bevel you need to be careful because if you cut something hard like a bike spoke you may end up crushing the blade. Its really meant for soft material like copper etc. I don't like to sore this in places were the jaws may get nicked because ... Read more

    Cuts well Very good build quality (especially for the price) Cuts through steel quite thick that I wouldn't have expected it to cut through. None to be found, although I do se signs that it has been used on the blade, it works perfectly well for me still. My primary use for these was to cut the guitar strings at the neck when I strung my guitar but ... Read more
