    It doesn't cut steel cord

    posted by adrianofborges on 07/24/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    Parts move away when you try to cut steel cord. Parts aren't tight joined. Cape handle is thinner then expected. A spring woul...

    Cuts metal like butter

    posted by click4net on 04/05/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    The handles could have padded with better, thicker coating.

    Cons:

    Cutter

    posted by vamps4 on 11/22/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    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. Wha...

    Great Cutter saves time and effort

    posted by Bashar85 on 10/15/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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 (al...
    Cons:
    DX could offer a bigger size also - no cons for this cutter.

    Awsome wire cutter

    posted by helimanjoe on 05/12/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very sharp. These make cutting wire feel like butter. The cutting edge is beveled curved.
    Cons:
    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 t...

    posted by Simonetti2010 on 09/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    None. There are no pros for this product, because it doesn`t do what it is supposed to. Keep reading.
    Cons:
    Here we go! I got this cutter as a tool for my home bike repair shop. I meant it for cutting gear cables (steel, 1.2 mm) and ge...
