    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.

    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.
