    Great cutters for the money

    Overall: 4.5 out of 5

    I have been buying these well over 10 years for my techs, they last a long time with consistent use in our production lab. Well worth the money, they work just as well as some expensive models when used to cut recommended gauge wires.

    Well worth the price!

    Overall: 5 out of 5

    I used this on a job site for 12 hours yesterday and it worked great. I just wonder why nobody ever thought to build a belt holster for those of us that need it as often as a pocket knife. I use a cell phone belt case which works ok but s not as sturdy as a heavy leather one.
