These cutters are excellent at the $5 price point. I purchased one to add to my at-home vaping tool kit, and a second pair for my electronics repair tool kit. After about a month of use, these are points to consider when purchasing this product. To help in deciding to purchase I have added photos for you to see the product up close.

Pros:
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.

Cons:
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)

With the pair I received the cutting edges don't line up very well. The edges only meet up properly at the very tip, so if you try to cut anything further back in the jaws it won't cut all the way through. The rest of the tool is nicely constructed, but the one part that truly matters is bad on mine.

I got these to cut & trim electronic part leads on a couple of IC circuit board projects. They work really well and cut hundreds of leads effortlessly.

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.

This is the best by far when it comes to cutting those tough to reach RDA coil leads. I am telling you right now, you will get in there and eliminate all those terrible times where you snipped the wrong wire or your nail clippers fell apart in your hand. Come on, you want to chuck those clouds? Get this!

For normal through-hole components, this tool will be all you need to trim things up when the soldering is done. Easily cuts through 18 AWG solid-core wire and solder blobs. An excellent tool.

What can I say? These are some handy little cutters. Snip through capacitor and resistor leads like butter. These came free with my Hakko FX-888 soldering station, but they are definitely worth buying on their own.

I think these cost like $5, so i didn't get around to asking for a refund/ return yet; even though i bought them a couple of months ago. The problem is- is that i took them out of the package and simulated cutting something (gave them a nice squeeze) and the tip of one side of the cutting edges snapped right off. Now they're completely useless! I hadn't even used them once.

I have always wanted a pair of these...spring handle...flush cut...comfortable and substantial. They have a pretty wide range of cutting different gauges. They really give you a lot of confidence and hope I don't get to cocky and cut something stupid and ruin them. So far I have really enjoyed being able to flush cut a solder joint and get the shrink to go on smoothly. I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone.
