My grandfather used to say that if God had made 9" Kleins first, it would've only taken him four days to finish the world.

Klein makes a tough, versatile set of lineman pliers.

If you are a new electrician, don't show up on the jobsite without this tool in your pouch.
I have tried other brands more expensive and less and this is the sidecutter that I have found to be of the highest quality.
The way to determine how good a pair of sidecutters are going to be is the distance measurement from the hinge to the start of the cutting blade. Klein has managed to cut this distance down to a minimum, while still maintaining the tool's strength. The closer that distance, the less force needed to cut thicker wire.

The blade stays sharp for a long time, and once your set of Kleins are broken in, you will not be able to live without them.

Consider moving up to the next level of Kleins with the fishtape pulling grip located at the top, inside of the handles. You will use it often.

When I started out as an electrician's helper, I needed good quality tools. I purchased some Klein tools at the recomendation of co workers and have used them exclusively for my electrical jobs ever since.
This tool is about 9 inches long and has a very sturdy feel to it. It will take whatever abuse you can dish out. Like most Klein pliers, I have found it helpful to keep the tool clean with a light coating of wd-40 to keep the handles nice and loose as well as keep the rust down. It is also helpful in keeping the nice plastic coating on the handles from drying and cracking. The cutter on this tool is very strong, and can cut wire, as well as small electrical bolts and cutting and/or closing loops on light duty chain.(such as you might find on a hanging light fixture.)
A side cutting plier, or linesmans pliers as they are called in the trade are exremely handy for twisting and untwisting wire braids. This practice is a must for making wire pigtails, and this tool does it with ease. Even heavier 12 gauge wire is no challenge for this tool. I have even seen electricians use this tool as a tight spot hammer to drive home wire staples that are in inaccesable spots that a hammer could not swing.
Kleins might cost more than some other brands but once you use them, you never want to go back.

These are just great pliers...with these you get high quality tool steel that will hold up, a basic rugged design ready for your toughest jobs, and a fine grip added to the handles. They are very comfortable in my hand and they were an excellent addition to my toolbox without completely breaking the bank on Snap-On or Matco tools. The pliers were extremely stiff out of the box, but have loosened up nicely without much trouble.

It seems that these days people usually go with one of the three brands for quality pliers: Knipex, Klein, or Channellock...all make excellent pliers, but have their pros and cons that you might want to consider. I've done a little research and it's all boiled down to this:

Take note that Klein pliers generally do not have as much rust resistance as the Channellock pliers do. Most Channellock pliers are electronically coated to resist rust, and Klein and many Knipex pliers do not have this useful feature. If you live in somewhere tropical or by the coast where moisture is common, this might be the best option. Because I live in a desert, it's not too much of a concern here. Channellock pliers are also one of the cheaper options, though only by a little.

Knipex pliers are made in Germany and have outstanding quality. They, like Channellock and Klein, make tools designed for professionals as well as the serious DIYer. Their tool steel is incredibly strong, and the tempering and hardening process that they use is probably the best there is. I have heard of people who have bent their Knipex tools and how the tempering in the tool causes them to revert to their original shape over time. I don't know of another brand that will do that...

I bought what I thought was an expensive, but quality tool. Unfortunately, the side cutting pliers didn't cut. The two cutting edges were not parallel and did not close along their length (see photo). These wire cutters would not cut stranded wire.
I could simply have fixed them with a file, but as a service to an American manufacturer, I chose to notify the company. I photographed the pliers and sent the picture to Klein, because as a former manufacturing engineer, I know how bad this situation could be; they could have made thousands like the ones I bought. I waited almost 24 hours with no reply. I called the 800 number, got the responder to look at the image, and she told me I could take the pliers to any Klein dealer for an exchange. I went to The Home Depot and they exchanged them all right, with a $10 surcharge.
FIVE DAYS after I sent the original email, I get a reply, telling me that I don't know what I'm talking about because the jaws normally do not close. While that is true of the gripping surfaces, it is not true of the cutter. Apparently she had neither looked carefully at the image nor read what I'd written. I clarified the situation. She apologizes, sort of, saying that she thought I was talking about the wire gripping surfaces, not the cutter but not admitting anything about the problem with the cutting edges, much less thanking me for notifying them. By that time I was pretty steamed.
There were half a dozen serious errors in the manufacturing, inspection, and service of this product. If they keep up with this kind of quality and service, Klein is finished.
