I have always been a bit skeptical about high priced tools, but this is, without a doubt, the best cutter I have ever used. Love how flush it cuts the wire and how easy it is to use, specially when trying to get to those tiny places where most cutters can't. You won't regret getting this ;)
By far the best flush cutters I have used, so easy to use and perfectly flush, wish they cost a little les, but sure is worth the investment.a
When I received my new Razor flush taper cutters I was so excited. They were so sharp and could cut in tight spaces. The wire I use is 18 gauge and softer so they are not being abused according to Artbead's recommendation.
I've used them for three month and they are virtually unusable now, they have gouges in them and actually tear the wire. I waited along time to buy these because of the cost......I'm going to have to look for something else to replace them :(
When they work great but nick easily and break!
I also LOVE the way these cut when they do the job. I have had TWO pairs and both have nicked and the tip just broke off my 2nd pair cutting 20 gauge wire! I am very disappointed that these are so FRAGILE. Neither pair has lasted me more than a year. I make a LOT of jewelry. I sell at shows and have my jewelry in retail specialty shops. I also have an online store. I will need to find an alternative because I think I am done with this tool.
