  • Good buy for electronics work

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

    Pros:

    These work very well for cutting small wires, component leads, and other fine items. The blades seem sharp (don't know how long they will last however)

    The best part about this SKU is the disproportionately large handles, compared to many other cutters. This makes the unit a bit ugly, but transfers more of your energy when you cut, resulting in very clean cuts (essential for electronic component leads)

    Cons:

    Did not have a protector for the cutting tip. A piece of plastic would come in handy and cost a fraction of a penny. If you are not careful, you can poke someone's eye out with unprotected small cutters.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    If you only have larger cutters and struggle to trim thin wires with them, get this. It is very well suited for fine wires.
