First impressions - it's heavy. I don't know what the main body is comprised of but it's not ferromagnetic. The handles are smooth and the tool fits my hand quite well. I'm guessing handles are painted - time will tell how fast the coating rubs off. There is a fairly strong spring inside the handles (and that spring IS ferromagnetic) - it feels like something else will fail before the spring will.
There is a white plastic lock/release tab that is easily operated. This feels like the cheapest/weakest part of this tool and the likeliest candidate for early failure. If/when that happens I don't think I'll care too much - just means the handles will be open an extra inch when not in use. On the other hand - manipulating that lock & release is almost like a fidget toy so it might break sooner...
The punch itself has a simple flat chisel tip - when the handles are fully squeezed closed the full cutting surface protrudes through the base. It's sharp. Initial tests have it cutting paper & cardboard with zero effort - whatever I can stuff into the slot (about 1/8" thick) winds up with a clean hole in it. I'm sure it would work for harder materials including thin sheet metal - but I'd expect the cutter to wear out in such usage. As I wanted a punch for cardboard service tags I'm quite happy with what it does. There exist tools for punching metal (hint: they're called "metal punches" for a reason) so if that's your application look elsewhere.
One cautionary note: when squeezed the base of the handles touch each other. That's the actual "stop" of the tool - the punch itself does not bottom out otherwise. The way the handles conform to my hand I don't anticipate a problem - but maybe someone with smaller hands would leave a pinky finger in between them. I think that would actually take conscious effort (it certainly does for me) but that would be quite painful if it occurred.
On the front of the tool is a painted white dot indicating the hole position. However, as the tool pivots in use this dot shifts in position during the stroke. Don't guess - just flip the tool over and use the exposed hole for precise positioning. In fact the instructions on the package show just that.
Overall I'd say there are two things I'd like to see changed for a more "pro" version - first, replacing the plastic locking tab with metal. Second - provide a ring where a lanyard could be attached.
With the exception noted above this feels like the perfect technician's hole punch. Time will tell regarding it's longevity - reviews from others leave me hopeful.
