However, there is a limit - don't go past 12g. sterling or soft copper/bronze wire to cut, for I have broken 3 pairs trying to cut 10g bronze wire in the past 10 years. Try to avoid cutting steel wire, and it is best for sterling, fine silver, gold, platinum, copper, brass, bronze, nickel and nobium wire. If you want to cut steel or titanium or memory wire, use small bolt cutters or cutters designed for those wires.
Another unexpected bonus - these cutters are the best for cutting plastic cable ties. I do trade shows and high-end craft shows, so I have to use a lot of cable ties to secure my lights and booth framework. These Xuron Maxi-shear Flush Cutters cut thru plastic like butter and I frequently keep a pair in my handbag ( I know, I'm complusive) but it does make life easier.
If you are going to buy wire cutters, just save your energy and time, and buy these Xuron Maxi-shear Flush Cutters.Read more ›
As a side note, please do not laugh. (If you must, don't inform me.) I have thick toe nails, and the commercial clippers are very hard to use, since I'm 78 and not all that physically fit. Well, I discovered these Maxi Shears work wonders, and they are very precise and require very little strength to cut. At the price of this product, I would recommend them as premium toe-nail clippers. Easy to use, and in most cases, lower priced than the so-called premium brand toe-nail clippers.
Because of their special spring hinge, it is the most gentle cutter, producing excellent and precise cuts.
By "gentle" I mean that the tiny snips of solder don't go flying all over the place when I snip them off. This is very important since I'm working with precious metals.
The blades will seem comparatively vulnerable as opposed to a tool from a hardware store, and I do not use them for wire over 18ga in order to prolong the life of the cutting edge.
But they do wear out, and I do buy them again and again because they are super sharp, and the spring hinge is perfect for my application.
My kids and I enjoy making jewelry with chain mail and wire-wrapping, so I'm ordering a second pair. We've taken classes and bought several books and magazines on the subject; the most informative and insightful have been two books by Scott David Plumlee (Chain and Bead Jewelry Geometric Connections: A New Angle on Creating Dimensional Earrings, Bracelets, and Necklaces & Handcrafting Chain and Bead Jewelry: Techniques for Creating Dimensional Necklaces and Bracelets. He explains how to get a flush cut on both sides of the jump rings and his explanation of how to do the Byzantine chain was the best.
I've been using these for over a year now and they are still as sharp as the day I bought them. I am storing them in the cardboard when not in use and that seems to be helping them stay sharp. Again, these are the best cutters I've ever used and they are worth every penny.
