This is an excellent tool.
I have two sizes, but use the 8" most often. It works well to pull nails, cut wires, nibble metal, and bend, break, cut, or remove all manner of materials.
The nipper gets into tight spots to pull nails when a hammer or pry bar won't fit.
I used this tool last night. I was removing an old fireplace for a basement remodelling project. I used it to pull nails from the wooden framing. Then I cut the thick wire in the reinforced fabric ducting connected to the blower assemblies. I used it to cut the 12 gauge Romex to the blower (diag cutters or lineman's pliers may be the purist' choice-but I had this tool in hand...)Finally, I used it to bend sharp, nasty sheet metal edges into less dangerous shapes/positions when I was ready to carry the firebox outside.
I have also used it in the past to grab rounded screw heads and extract them.
Dependable tool. Frequently and successfully used. Highly recommended.

I agree with other reviewers here. These end-cutters are particularly well suited to pulling/leveraging nails. They are not as well suited to end-nipping. There are slightly better manual end-cutters for nipping where the pivot is closer to the jaws and the handles flare more widely resulting in better mechanical advantage. There are also ones with double-pivots which generate even better mechanical advantage and work well, but they can be unwieldy.

These however are perfect for nail pulling in that the jaws open wider, the head curvature is just right for the cam-action of leveraging a nail out and the narrower handles enable easy one-hand operation. As a carpenter I use these every day to quickly remove large stubborn nails with minimal damage to the lumber. Paired with a small Japanese prybar (Dogyu or others) they also work quite well for more delicate trim work.

By far, the easiest, quickest and least damaging way to pull nails.

UPDATE Aug. 2011: Ordered a new pair after losing the old ones. Quality and design has definitely gone downhill. Instead of a solid joint, there is a rivet which will wear and loosen faster. Handles are slightly less flared making one hand operation, for me at least more clumsy. Steel/heat-treating seems to be of lower quality and machining is definitely lower quality. Except for the cutting ends, the body is painted black rather than polished. Downgrade from 5 to 3 stars.

Channellock comes through again, as I can't say enough for the utility of this 358 plier/nipper. My main use is renovation. When I go into a home, for example, that has an unfinished basement, for some reason there are always thousands of nails in the joists -- who does that! But these 358 nippers can either snip a nail head flush with a wall, ceiling, baseboard, floor, or joist, or it can effortlessly extract it by rolling it out. You'll never want to use a hammer to extract a nail again since this 358 plier rolls the nail out without marking the face of the board or wall. Also, its handles are curved so that all four fingers can apply equal pressure, giving you more torque. Another use is to cleanly shape material, corners, and edges. I can enlarge a wallboard cutout for an electrical outlet in a precise way rather than using a ziptool or using a clumsy hand saw. No matter what, make sure you have this tool in your belt.

Good, functional pliers but has been modified from its original version. The original Channellock 358 I probably bought close to 10 years ago is different from this newer version: the top grabbing/clamping surface is much thinner on the original one and thereby allows you to grab much finer things and especially allows you to grab items that only stick up slightly. This newer version, while still a decent product, has lost that unique ability. It's just as clumsy as all the other pliers out there. The original one had finesse. Too bad.

Have used these for years and they take much abuse for a long time. I work as a Rodbuster and they get used all day every day along with a pair of linemans pliers. Make sure you get the 8's though, they cut through much heavier wire with the added leverage.

The plier does it's job well. It's sharp and free moving. I have never had a problem with any tools from Channellock. Made in U.S.A. !!
