To all the negative reviewers out there: every negative review I've read is because you were not using them on the right job! That's hardly the tool's fault. From 17 gauge galvanized electric fence wire to 11 gauge woven fence wire these things are amazing. Small and light enough to carry around and effortless to use all day. Even the 14" version of these are considerably heavier. If the 12" gets the job done, I'd much rather work with them while fencing all day over the 14". Of course if the job demands larger cutters, then you use larger cutters.
They are NOT for small gauge wire, nor hardware cloth, nor chicken wire, nor sheet metal, nor bicycle cables, nor heavy bolts to say nothing of hardened lock shanks, etc, etc. You don't hear people complain when their angle cutters can't cut through a masterlock. No one who knows what they're doing would use 24" bolt cutters on poultry netting. The right tool for the right job... and when these are the right tool they're pretty sweet!
I mistakenly followed the Amazon frequently bought together suggestion that paired this with chicken wire. It mostly crushed or scored the wire, requiring me to nudge the wire apart after cutting. I didn't need gloves for this small project and found the hard plastic, square handles of TEKTON mini bolt and wire cutters quite harsh. I ended up using an old pair of Craftsman hand pruners with a spongy red handle. They cut much better and didn't cause hand fatigue.
Purchased these to cut the ends off of some very thin screws, didn't even make a scratch on them.
Update on the cutters. I have been using them for several months now cutting 3/16" steel wire. The blades are still like new.
These are great for occasional use, like putting up a chain link fence for yourself, and other uses like that. Now, if you were in the business of fence-building, and wanted a true pro-quality tool, go with something like the Knipex Co-Bolt cutters, but keep in mind they are about 5X as expensive, as well.
I'd say that these work well for cutting unhardened bolts up to about 1/4 inch (although it WILL take some effort to do it in one snip) and maybe 3/16" for a grade 5 bolt. It works great for stuff like chain link fence wire, barbed wire, as well as hogwire or the horse fence that comes in the big rolls.

They do, but it isn't easy. I need to apply as much force as I am able for about five seconds, with a little twisting motion in order to get these to cut through. The 14-inch version would have made this process go a lot faster, though they may have been unweildy to use in amongst all the trees and bushes - the 8-inch one was easy to get into the awkward locations to reach the wire I needed to cut.
Another minor downside is the latch that keeps the blades together either gets in the way or digs into the palm of your hand. I may need thicker gloves.
I'll finish on the high notes: They cut the wire, they did not break, and they were very good value for money.
Perhaps someone can say whether they work out of the box with blunt blades?
