These pliars are great for house wiring and cutting medium wire. Do not use these on hardened wire or large steel wire. I use these to cut house wiring to length because they give me more cutting leverage than Lineman Side Cutter Pliers. It is also easy for me to see exactly where I am cutting and get close to devices when I am cutting. I used them to add two electrical outlets for my cable amplifier and home ethernet network switch. I also use these to cut coax cable when I don't have my cable cutters. I like the insulated handles in case I get into a live wire by mistake.

I consider this tool as a professional tool. The quality is pretty good, the steel is excellent, the handles are comfortable, very sharp, the size is great.

I was cutting a negative wire for car batteries (is really thick) without problems, and without pain on my hands.

I have one diagonal cutting pliers, but the problem with this one is the size: 6 inches long and the jaws do not have the size to cut thick wires (like wires for car and truck batteries).

Great tool!!

This vice grip is relatively good for what it's meant to do, but I've decided that the grip on the handle could be softer. My hands hurt sometimes from using it but otherwise it's been great.

Diagonal pliers aka wire cutters. They do their job. I've owned several pairs of these over the years. Irwin's hold up well for a long time even with daily use. Mainly use them for coax cable cutting.

Again, some people felt that Irwin made bad tools, but I am a tool junky, and i am very critical of poorly made tools. These have the same great hard rubber type of handles on them. Notice how they flare up at the ends, Your hand will stay on the handle, and not slip to the point of losing an effective gripping position. probably more so, is that you will grip these in the same spot each time. Never underestimate the power of contrasting color, and shape for helping you make the right choices in gripping your tool without giving it any thought.

I kid you not. Only 2 1/2 months after purchase, the nose snapped when cutting a piece of plastic off a breaker. Irwin will replace this, but the time & money I have to spend shipping it out hardly makes it worth it - in fact, it's not, it's just the principle of the thing as to why Im not just buying a different one. Irwin has been good in the past, but Im definitely disappointed with this product.

Great pliers for cutting wires. I'm in the HVAC field and it is convenient for cutting wires up to #8
