Ratings & Reviews
Good size and Streamline
These cutters are great for use in the fire service. They can handle a good size gage wire and give you plenty of leverage with the long handles. The metal they are made out of is very cleanly cut and the whole tool is very well constructed. They can be slightly difficult to hold onto when wet and wearing gloves, along with needing to be opened pretty far to get the cutting mouth open sometimes straining your hand when wearing gloves. These two cons can easily be fixed with some tape wrap and some practice.
This purchase was a nobrainer. Every firefighter should have a pair. Multiple uses for this tool... firefighter rescue, basic cutting needs, car fires/MVCs, etc.
