  • They went rusty

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Serrated grip matches up well.
    Handles are comfortable and seem fairly durable.
    Spring is nice and strong.
    Jaws move smoothly without requiring any lubrication.

    Cons:

    They went rusty after about a month (they were stored indoors in a normal environment).

    OtherThoughts:

    The jaws are ground to an oblique angle at the end, rather than a point. You won't be stabbing yourself with these, but this may not be what you want.

    They're quite small; the handles are 70mm long and 70mm apart at their widest.
    The jaws are 40mm long (the bent section is 14mm long). The bend angle is approximately 45*.

    Bottomline:

    Would be a good deal considering the price if they hadn't rusted. The machining is good, but the material is bad.

    I have given them a light coating of oil which should improve them slightly.
