I have only ever owned knipex cutters these where the first pair of cutters I ever bought I think in the past 12 years iv gone through about 3 pairs mainly because I blew them up :-( but I will never change from them they are a bit on the pricier side but you get what you pay for. They feel great in the hand and have never let me down .

This is the usual knipex quality , solid , holds an edge with abuse on SWA , even with a handle soaked in oil you can still handle them , only downside is most side cutters come with cut outs for cable stripping and what not so lack of features is low

Knipex have produced the best cutters on the market for as long, if not longer than I’ve been an electrician. These don’t disappoint, not that I expected then too

Great to use and can be stored away in tool boxes and bags, great to keep in the van. Would even be handy for use at home when needed.

I have always bought cheap wire cutters as I’m not a electrician however after a electrician left me with a pair I decided to use them whilst he was away. Thank god he did I feel I have been struggling all my life! No more cheap cutting tools for me. A pure joy to use.

Great snips especially for tough cable the extra length on the handle give you plenty of room to get good grip when cutting large cables. Have had 2 sets of these in 10 years so great quality too.

Excellent cutters, my go to ones are Bahco but I have these too and it's a very close second for me. They both perform just as well but prefer how th Bahco ones fit in my hand. Personal preference is all it boils down to.
