I bought these for use with ethernet cables, but have found all sorts of different uses for them. I use them to cut those extremely tough electronics plastic packages, cardboard boxes, and really anything else that needs a strong cut. To give a little bit of comparison. I have some kleins at work of an equivalent model, and prefer these shears, especially for the price. It may be personal preference, but I do not think you are missing out on much getting these instead of the Klein version. It has a fairly comfortable grip and seems to be quite sturdy.

Some of the negatives to the product are the, as others have mentioned, large bolt at the axis of the scissors. I am not trying to up these in a pocket so it is not an issue for me, however, I can see how others would find this to be an issue. The one other issue is that these shears are a bit to stubby for work outside of wiring and the like in some cases. I realize that is not the intent however about another half-inch to an inch would allow for a greater range of uses.

Pros;
+ Sharp strong shears
+ durable and comfortable grip
+ Great price

Cons:
- A bit short
- Large central bolt could be cumbersome

In short I recommend this to anyone that needs shears for wiring, but truthfully I kind of think these should be in any household as they can be used for so many things, and they can spare the weaker office scissors we all have that we try to cut things with either hurting our hands or breaking the scissors. Unless you are an afficianado of some sort you will not be disappointed in choosing these shears over a more expensive brand such as Klein, and that is not to say Kleins are bad because they are nice, these just do everything those do at a better price.

I bought these to replace a set of KLEIN TOOLS 2100-7 SCISSORS STRIPPING NTCHS that I have been using for the last few years or so, helping my buddy with his data networking company. Mostly for CAT5e/CAT6/Cat6A and RG6 coax. The Kleins were good, and what everyone seems to use (probably because you can get them at Home Depot). Well, I broke the tip. So I wanted to try something else.

First off, I really like the grips. Much nicer than the Kleins. Especially when doing demo work and cutting hundreds of cables in the course of a day. They are very sharp and cut really well. Nice sharp tip to get in a cut tie wraps close.

My only complaint is the hinge bolt. It is way overkill. There is no reason for it to be as big as it it. While it is not a huge problem, it does make storing the shears a little awkward. I usually just keep them in my front pocket, but the bolt get caught taking the shears in and out. I may take a grinder to them, but haven't yet.

Overall, very happy. We'll see how they last.

These Snips have a bit of a different profile from the standard Snips I use, but heck I am always looking for something better than the conventional tools use in splicing. These Snips provide more leverage then D-handled snips and can cut #10 ground wire using the cutting notch (I haven't tried #6) but I don't think it will quite go through it with a single pass. The only thing funky about these snips is the huge bolt that goes through it that got in the way a bit when you use these like a splicer does, but its nothing a grinder could not fix. all in all I am happy with them after my modifications and I use them every day 6 days a week.

I bought a pair of these electrical scissors over six months ago and they are still working as good as new. The blades have stayed sharp, the handles are comfortable and the wire cutting notch is a convenient feature. I buy tools to actual do work with them, not just look at them in my tool box. I am very happy with this purchase.

from braided to mono,
from the thinnest to the most thick fishing lines out there,
including the steel cables
the mnt I got it I put it to z test.
every fisherman should have at least one in his disposal at all times,
thanks Clauss for great quality product

UPDATE 1/4/2016.
lots of abuse and neglect next to the salty waters of the northeast,
and this thing still as good as the day I got it.
I mostly used it on a big variety of materials, plastics, hooks, wires, mono and braided lines, cutting of the tip of a rod, to cutting through the tin of a soup can to cut it open into two equal halves, and the list keeps on going, to the point am buying another one to have in the car's emergency tool bag ...... ( Great Tool )

First off, Clauss is the name to look for when you need quality shears. These things are really sharp, will cut through almost anything, and feel well constructed. Great value for the money.

Best of all, they are small enough to pass through airport security. Happy buying!

These snips work great. Very sharp, and nice plastic handle for comfort. I work with network cable, and these snips definitively come in handy.
