Since I work as an electro-mechanical equipment technician, I value my tools highly. Since I've discovered Knipex tools, I've become a fan!
I originally picked these up just to be able to cut larger diameter wire than the flush cutters I carry for smaller wire. The cut is so nice and clean, I often use these to cut pneumatic tubing. But the real prize is in how I can abuse them. As part of my job, I frequently have to install duct hose for hot air drying systems or UV curing systems. These hoses run 3" to 8" in diameter, and are usually either rubber or fabric with a spiral steel wire giving it support. I need to cut these hoses to length, which consists of slicing around the hose with a very sharp knife, and then cutting through the steel wire. Over the years, I've used several different tools for this. But I've found these cutters chop off that steel wire without too much effort, and the jaws are staying in good shape despite my abuse.
I left a pair of these at a customer's plant, and when I returned they said they hadn't seen them! So someone's got a nice set of diagonal cutters now ... and I ordered 2 more to replace them.
The worst part about buying these? While I was looking for them, I saw several other Knipex tools that looked like they should probably be in my toolbox also!

I have used the Knipex brand wire snips for over 20 years now. Light weight, sharp, and hard edges. My brother ruined his on a live electric wire, so I bought him a new set. Works great. Clean snips, no loose wires or threads. They easily cut coaxial cables, Cat 5e wires and risers, speaker wires, shipping bands, and small bolts up to 1/8 inch with relative ease. They will also cut larger bolts, but may damage the blades or deform the handles....I've seen my brother cut them, so I know. I love the Knipex and recommend as standard equipment in most tool boxes. Makes a great gift idea for those people you know who work with wires and cables.

These German made diagonal cutters are of the highest quality I could find. I bought them for my Son, who is a volunteer firefighter, and wanted to keep them with his gear as a FEMA course recommended tool to cut through bx electrical cable in case of a roof collapse, fall through, and getting hung up, stuck in the cables. I hope that never happens, but if it ever does, these cutters will do the job quicker, and with less effort, than any other pair I could find in a compact size. They are expensive, but their performance in cutting with less effort than others makes them a good value. A tool that should last a lifetime.
