I have owned two sets of these scissors and I can say they past the test. They cut through a bundle 25 pair of phone cables like a hot knife through butter. I have even sliced though a 1 inch thick fiber 12 pair, Kevlar and all. I have demonstrated to non-believers how well this snips work by chopping right though penny's. The small notches on the top of the blade are handy for striping small gauge wire. helps not needing to carry multiple tools. If you do get these be sure to hold them correctly! They are very awkward trying to operate them with two fingers. The elongated handle rests in your palm. You middle or ring finger slides into the other side of the handle. You can generate HUGE torque using them this way so even when they are dull they work great.

Fiskars 9485 Data Comm Snips

These are absolutely the best pair of scissors I have ever owned. I am currently replacing a pair that I have owned for about 8 years and they have seen it all... I used to work for the local electricians union as a communications installer. The snips performed better than most other brands, by having tiny serrations on one blade they grip the material being cut. Also, by being smaller they could often be manuvered into tighter locations with ease. Since retiring the snips from the union they have been a very handy multi-purpose snip. They have pruned my garden and cut vegetables countless times, they have also proved to be a priceless fishing item. A real go to tool for making up big game skirted trolling lures or mono shock leaders for your surf rod. If you're looking for a good pair of heavy duty snips consider these. It's unfotunate that Fiskars has discontinued them.

This is not merely a pair of scissors. It's a wire cutter and stripper, tin snips, garden shears, and whatever else you can think of... and they'll still cut paper after doing these heavy duty chores. I am a communications contractor and use these on a daily basis, cutting all kinds of stuff, abusing them by scissor standards for sure, and they are simply amazing. I have literally cut sheet metal with these. They live in my tool pouch and I take them everywhere.

For you telecom guys out there who insist the chromed Klein snips are the best tool because the old timers still use them, think again. Technology has come a long way since those got popular. These fiskars are every bit as tough and miles ahead in comfort and leverage. Plus they cut better.

This is THE tool to have for the handy all-around cutting tool. GET IT.

I first found these Fiskar scissors at my local electronics parts shop. I fell in love with their durability and quality manufacturing attributes. I decided to find another pair and found that they were decontinued by Fiskar. Amazon had a pair available for a great price! They arrived in a just a couple of days and are now at work in my Cat5 tool kit. Great little scissors, great price, super fast shipping equals a BARGAIN! Thank you! Scotty.

Ever since Fiskars came out with these a few years ago, I don't use any other snips. They are very light and easy to handle with the ergonomic handles. My normal datacomm supplier stopped carrying them and could not or would not tell me why they stopped carrying them.

Have used this product before but had a tough time getting another pair until now. I thought that the shipping price was a little too high. I would have ordered a few more pair to save on the shipping charges but it was $4.99 for each pair!!!

Speaking as an alarm and telephone tech, I love these. From a cutting standpoint I don't think they cut any better than the standard metal handled klein's. But from a comfort standpoint, they are simply the best. I had to get a couple just so my wife wouldn't steal mine. The one downside is they may not fit well in whatever slot you use in your tool pouch because of the large handle as opposed to the skinnier klein's
