To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Got these because my Xcelite cutters I’ve had for years are excellent, professional quality tools. These look the same, but don’t spring open, they kind of bind a little, and the cutter is a little misaligned. The old ones (that made me want another pair) were made in USA, new ones in China. The process changed, the USA ones look like they were ground/sharpened with the two halves assembled, giving very good alignment, the new ones were sharpened in a different way, separately. Save some money and buy something generic, because that’s what these are.
Another item I discovered in my toolbox at work that was so well made I had to buy one for use at home. These are some excellent quality flush cutters for a wide range of applications, and if you're using them for appropriate uses, they will last for a long time. I will say, I've definitely dulled and broken a few pairs in my life, but I know I was using the wrong tool for the wrong job. I keep a nice pair for appropriate tasks around, and it's still in perfect condition. For the price, you can't go wrong!
My brother recommended this for, of all things, trimming the nails of our pet dog, and it works great, at least for smaller dogs whose nails aren't super thick and require a vet's care. It's sharp and precise and also works great for trimming the thick toenails of older folks, such as my elderly father. Cleanse with rubbing alcohol after each use.
These are precision cutters. So long as you treat them as such, they are outstanding. Still, I buy two of them; one for precision work and one to sacrifice while using for the myriad other purposes that they're good for.
so far these are the best I have found in years. I had a pair from a guy who worked at Xerox corp. they were by far the best, but you can't get them anymore, hoping these will be my go to .. so far so good!
Possibly the best all-around wire cutters on the market. Over 30 years in electronics, these are my go-to cutters, from cutting 14 AWG stranded wire to the leads on resistors. Flip the cutters over, and they are sharp enough to make (with practice) a great wire stripper.
