Product Reviews

  • "Made Repair, now they are good." by sparky on 1/7/2015
    Overall: 2 out of 5

    Have read many reviews on several websites about this batch of shearcutters and I'd have to agree that the blades don't line up. I really wanted these to work so five minutes on the bench grinder and they're much better. Seems that they skipped the last step when they were manufactured.

  • "Klein Shearcutter" by gunguy on 4/25/2013
    Overall: 3 out of 5

    I've been using Klein tools for years. They have a fine reputation. However, I expected these cutters would have their cutting edges meet perfectly and they do not. At the end of the cut, the blades overlap. I cannot say they do not cut, as they seem to do that job well, but, they leave a "stepped" ridge on the end surface of the cut wire.

  • "Good but not perfect snips" by wjlentz on 10/26/2012
    Overall: 4 out of 5

    These cutters are much stronger and better than the cheap kind which are only good for a few cuts before they develop grooves. This cutter could be improved with the spring clip to prevent cut wires from flying out in a dangerous manner, and if one works near other people, I would recommend the more expensive version so that wires are not propelled into your neighbor's eyes. I threw away my Radio Shack cutters.

    Seems solid and reliable. Very versatile for testing small electronic items. Glad I got it!

  • "USA Made Xcelite Shear Cutters - Rock Bottom Quality" by Marc49Lewis on 4/1/2012
    Overall: 1 out of 5

    First pair I received had 1 blade with the tip snapped off right out of the package; they were replaced at no cost. Second pair blades do not even mate and have play at the pivot... You close them normally and hold them up to a light source and see a "V" of light through the blades. Absolute junk. The Plato 22-8705 cutters are much better, as are the cheaper Chinese 22-13910; both their blades mate correctly for a sharp cut on even very small wire. Don't bother wasting your time/money on these.

    The cutters are made well. Strong and have padded handle. Fit my hand and are easy to use.
