Any electrician can tell you that Klein makes some of the best tools in the industry. So when my company decided to do all of our own wiring (data and telephony) I grabbed my kit of Klein screwdrivers, side cutters and pliers and went to work. After installing over 3 miles of cat5 (multiple runs to 12 offices and a medium sized data center for which we custom made all of our cables) I expected to have to get my pair of D248-8 pliers sharpened. That was over a year and a half ago.
Durability aside, these pliers are so comfortable to work with and so ergonomic that I rarely ever use wire strippers. This pair of Klein cutters allows me to cut, strip, and bend the wire all without picking up another tool, and without nicking or marring the wire. Besides my Leatherman, this is the only other tool I call essential.
Other pluses: + 8 inch length is extra convenient for measuring the distance of wire protruding out of a wall box (necessary for NEC), + red handles indicate use with softer wire whereas Klein also make a set of blue handled cutters for lower gauge wiring and bolts (D2000-48), + angled head really does keep you from whacking you hands, and allows for greater mobility in tight spaces, + plastic handles are soft and comfortable yet I haven't had a tear or a hole in any of my Klein plier handles, + how Klein made a tool that is so ergonomic, yet feels the same for both right and left hands is beyond me.

At 70 years old, I'm a retired electrician and only do "favor" work for my family. I bought my first set of Klein D248-8-8 pliers in 1965, and was still using the same pair when I misplaced them late last year and couldn't find them---(yet). I used this tool for most of my wiring work and---for a lot of other things it wasn't desinged to do, but they did it all anyway and still remained functionally good for 45 years. The replacement pair is nearly indentical but is a little stiff to operate with one hand. This will loosen up with use, only it may not be me that finishes that job.

Klein hand tools are by far the best there is for wiring. I have wired several houses with these hand tools and have been nothing but impressed. Klein's wire strippers are great for stripping wire and for cutting here and there, but if you doing repeated cutting of Romex or any other wire 10 gauge to 24 guage this is the tool you need. It will easily and comfortably cut through Romex with one move. An absolute must for my wiring tool box.

If you have ever used a pare of wire cutters, you know about all there is to know about them. These however have an angled head witch is perfect for removing nails, staples and anything else sticking just above a flat surface (Not as good as a ~catspaw~ but vary close). I've had mine about a week and it seems to be holding up, no handle wobble or ware at all, they haven't deformed when cutting nails and they feel good in the hand when doing so. If your going to be doing something other than just cutting wire I'd find a pair at your local elec supply and put your hand around one to see for your self.

My husband loves, loves, loves his Klein diagonal cutting pliers. He purchased his original set years ago and they held up well through so much useage (he's a very handy guy and has used them in literally dozens of applications). I've used them a few times myself and I find them easy to hold in the hand (designed well so no strain on your hand when using them, even repeatedly) and just so functional!

He finally managed to hurt his pair through an unfortunate incident with an unexpectedly live wire, which arced and left a bit of a groove-out on one side of the cutting surface. Surprisingly, even with the defect they still work fairly well, although not as perfectly as before he damaged them. So this handy-man is getting a new pair of Klein's for Christmas in his stocking because cheap immitations are nothing compared to Klein's -- get them for the real deal!

The price of these sidecutters is high, but so is the value you receive. After going through two pairs of cheap ones (Craftsman, Harbor Freight), I realized that I was wasting money with the cheap stuff. The Kleins are sharp and cut easily. I use them most frequently to cut various types of gun springs, but have also used them to cut guitar strings, 10ga solid and stranded copper wire, and 12ga solid copper Romex cable.

Well worth the cost.

I don't think I have to say much more about Klein quality (leave that to the other reviewers) so I only want to report that I used these red handle pliers to cut through some nails that were holding in an electrical box to a stud. And it can cut steel wire coat hangers with ease. So far I don't see a single nick on these things. Very impressive! I would never have imagined what I deemed as wire cutters could cut so much more. At first I tried cutting that nail using my Kobalt 8" diagonals, but I just couldn't get enough squeezing force to cut it (though I have to say the Kobalts jaws didn't nick which is good). But the Kleins design allowed me to have a lot more force and I would say I easily cut that nail off.

Way better than the angle cutters that come in cheap tool kits. The price alone should tell you that. I recently started making my own leather products, and have been using copper rivets as fasteners. The cheap cutters just weren't cutting it, literally. I was having a very hard time cutting the rivets to size. These Klein cutters cut through the copper rivets very easily.
