I'm a woman with small hands, and I was nervous to use the Compound Tile Nippers initially, thinking that it would be too difficult for me to hold a tile in one hand while trying to nip it with this thing in my other hand. It was a great surprise to find that using this tile nipper was so easy! With little effort, I was able to nip the tiles into the shapes I wanted without exerting a lot of force. The cuts were clean, and this nipper was really easy to use. I'm beginning to think I need to find more projects that utilized tiles soon! Highly recommended.

I purchased these nippers when starting on my third tile bathroom. Man, I wish I had found them sooner! They are sooooo much easier to use than the cheapie, non-compound ones I got at Lowes. These didn't hurt my hands and no blisters.

I have a wet saw, too, which I use for all the big, straight cuts. But for curved cuts or for cutting small tiles, a tile nipper is essential. There is a learning curve, and I suggest you purchase a couple of extra tiles to practice on if you haven't used nippers before. I have also found that scoring the tile where you want the cut first (with a scoring tool) gives me almost perfect results! As another reviewer mentioned, take small "nibbles" rather than trying to nip off a big chunk. Once you get the hang of it, these nippers let you work quickly and accurately without the hand fatigue.

I tried these out on some scrap bathroom wall tile to get a feel for their chipping ability. I was impressed with the ease and accuracy of the snipping and was able to nip out a one inch half circle easily and without breaking the tile. They are also comfortable to hold and the construction is sturdy. Just remember to take really small bites and these nippers should serve you well.

I have kitchen backslash that I just put in and these helped me a lot. I had bought the tile that comes attached to netting and keeps it all together. I didn't want to make tedious cuts with a wet saw, so I decided to try these nippers out to cut each half of a tole sheet to make it even.

They worked with ease! They make a cut right into my nature stone tile right where I wanted them too and barley had to squeeze the handles. It cut right where I wanted them too and it made the job a lot easier.

I think they are fantastic. I belong to a mosaic group and would recommend them to anyone that does mosaics. They make cutting tiles so much easier.

These gems can't be beat for the price. Easy to use, clean cuts, etc. The snip is deep enough (just over 1/2 inch). The width is just right - small enough for intricate work, wide enough to avoid snipping a billion times. Nice handles and locking safety.

Get these, you'll be happy you did. I'm keeping these for the long run.

My search for a heavy duty end nipper fround these.

The pros:
+ Good product reviews.
+ Low cost with free Amazon shipping.
+ Appears to be a well built, heavy duty tool.

The cons:
- The nipper jaws don't close all the way, leaving over an 1/8" gap when fully closed. This wasn't in the product discription. If this was noted in the product details, I would have passed on this tool. :(

Guess what? These things nip tiles! And they don't fall apart! (The tool, that is. The tiles fall apart exactly as you'd expect.) If you've got tiles to nip, it's hard to go wrong with a pair of these.
