heavy duty electricians scissors, what more do you need to know? i use these to cut cable (cat5, cat6, 25 pair, etc) and they are working great. still as sharp as they were on day 1.

*edit - 4/12/2011
they are still going strong nearly a year and a half later. still very sharp, pretty much like they were on day 1. i would give a couple more stars but theyre already maxed out!
i made the mistake of cutting some stuff that was wrapped in tape and now they are sticky and hard to open every once in a while but i think a little rubbing alcohol or WD40 should take care of that problem.

I'm not an electrician or telephone repair guy, but my friend, who introduced me to these, is. He gave me a pair of his that was beginning to dull, so he could order a new one. That old pair of snips will still cut a penny in half. If you order a brand new pair, they are razor sharp, and will cut ANYthing. I've been using them as scissors, and so far, having not cut wire with them, the seem as though they will hold up indefinitely. The are small enough to fit in little pockets in my backpack or glove box, my tackle box, etc. I love them. There's really nothing like them. I use them all the time, and I'm not even using them for their intended purpose.

Of all the dumb things you can do with them, we were testing the old pair out and pruning a bush outside my front door with them, and the moisture did cause discoloration on the backs of the scissor blades (obviously, they weren't made for this), but hasn't affected the cutting power of that pair at all. They will still cut paper perfectly without tearing, even newspaper or paper towels, probably because they are screwed together so tightly that the cutting edges stay in perfect contact.

Anyway. They'll cut anything, and last forever. I'm sure they're amazing for their intended purpose too.

Best Scissors for the IT Professional Ever! These are very good at cutting Cat 5 & 6 cable, opening boxes, and snipping the heads off Zombies. Also stuff packed in vacuum packaging never need give you stitches again. Great to have on hand for the unexpected gift needs.

These scissors cut through anything. I use them for hardend plastic, fabric, paper. Obviously will not need to be replaced like the others my wife buys. Also Made in USA. China can't compete with Klein's!

I started out as lineman back in the 60s and then worked as a telephone installer/repairman for nine years after that. During those nine years, I carried the same pair of Klein "snips" and used them on a daily basis cutting and stripping telephone wires during installs and repairs. That pair never dulled, was dropped many times, and used in all kinds of weather. From looking at the new pair and using them for a while, I can honestly say the quality of Klein tools has not diminished in the least and I expect they will, unless I lose them, last me a lifetime.

Have owned a pair of the Klein 2100-7 scissors for a couple of years. Really liked the heft and feel of these, but they rust way too quickly. Going to try the 2100-9 stainless version now that I've found them: Klein 2100-9 Stainless Steel Electrician?s Scissors Stripping Notches Silver 5 1/4-Inches. They're currently (May 2012) only four dollars more and I imagine well worth it.

EDIT (MAY 19, 2012): Just got the stainless steel version - turns out only the blades are stainless; the handles are made of some cheap metal.

Great tool when new but I was disappointed to see them starting to rust within weeks for me. Only used them indoors and not in any particularly corrosive environment. None of the other tools in my toolbox are rusting. The mfgr states their "Nickel-plated finish resists corrosion", but that's only the outside - not the business side of the shears themselves.

I wish I had noticed when I bought these that there is a stainless steel version too, model # 2100-9, and the price difference as of this writing is ridiculously low at 6¢ (used to be much more):

Klein Tools 2100-9 Stainless Steel Electrician's Scissors Stripping Notches Silver 5 1/4-Inches

Go for those stainless ones instead! And if I were the mfgr I'd consider dropping rust-prone version altogether. Some metallurgists out there may be hesitant towards stainless based on hardness, but judging from the reviews of the stainless ones they are made from a decent stainless steel alloy. By-the-way, when you need to sharpen either, there's a sharpener from the same brand:

I used this many times, about 3 months. I am a network tech and work with phones too. Still as sharp as it was when i first bought it.
