The tool is constructed of 2.5mm heat-treated carbon steel that provides durability and long life. Precision-ground holes and surfaces provide smooth movement. Nonslip hand grips provide comfort and control, and a dolphin-style curved fore-edge protects hands from cutting surfaces. An internal spring returns the tool to the open position, reducing operator fatigue. Parkerized surfaces prevent glare and increase corrosion resistance.

Top Customer Reviews
At $5 dollars, you can't beat the price.
The handles are non-slip rubber/plastic without being to sticky, doesn't attract dust or dirt.
The handles protect your palm when cutting, softening the feel when applying cutting pressure.
The blades are hard metal, and after a month show no nicking or bending. (see picture)
The blades are at enough of an angle to get close when cutting without blocking your view.
Warnings on handles reminds you to ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION and CUT WIRE MAX THICKNESS 1.3 mm
Spring back handles feel firm and just right for repeated cuts.
Only for use on small, soft wires.
** Not designed for heavy duty or home electrical wiring.
I have seen some review stating the blades are uneven when handles are squeezed together (seems rare)

The cutting edges are well machined and give you the control you need for working in tight spaces. I have large hands and the molded grips are comfortable. They're spring loaded which makes them easy to use, and I use a rubber band to keep them closed before putting them away (to protect the cutting edges, etc.) When working, I just leave them in easy reach. Solder, clip, repeat...
Sure, you can spend more on other pliers or for heavy duty work, like guitar strings or 12 gauge electrical wires, but these are perfect for electronic work.
