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.
I ordered these instead of the Knipex 8 inch Bolt Cutters (trying to and save $30). As I opened the package I realized right away that these would probably be great for light home use (in which case it would be an excellent value for $9), but not for anything more than using a few times a year. I tested these on a hardened steel nail that my standard 7 inch wire cutters wouldn't even dent and it did work with some effort. It took about 3 seconds with both hands to cut through and it did so in one try, but I had to use both my hands. (Disclaimer: If there were a 1-10 rating for "tough, manly" hands, mine would be a 5. lol) I don't know how many of those cuts it would make, but it would be worth having around the house if you ever need it.
I would recommend this item to the very occasional user who needs this for a few applications a year, but nothing more.
+Stays open/can use one-handed
I bought these for work to remove a bunch of those "tamper-evident security seal" padlocks like you see on electrical meters. Despite the size, those little things are tough. Previously, I tried heavy-duty wire cutters, which quickly wore out and would badly cramp my hands. These mini bolt cutters have done nether, and are the perfect size for this type of work. I've also found them great for removing cable ties. Since the cutting end goes right to the tip, I can remove very tight cable-ties without nipping or cutting the wires themselves. You can also set them to spring back open, so that you don't have to "reset" them after each cut. To give you an idea of size, they're slightly bigger than your average pair of pliers, so they can be comfortably carried one-handed in the open position as well.
Overall, I can't think of a single complaint, and for the price it has very much exceeded my expectations.
Overall, for the price, there's really no excuse to not have these snips in your toolbag.
