I bought it for cutting shift cable covers. Surprised by the quality and performance of this cable cutter, really thick cutting edges and very clean cuts. Ready to take the abuse of daily use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous For years I used regular pliers or cutting pliers from the local hardware shop, fro years I have frayed cable ends due to poor cutting. This tool is amazing on either cables or the housing, or even both together. Should have bought it years ago, well worth the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous The initial look and feel is cheap. Mine had black handles (neither here nor' there) and the spring is dodgy looking.
The handles need to open ridiculously wide to do the job which sometimes, actually mostly always, requires two handed operation.
Yes the cutters cut inners cleanly as they do outers with inners inside but cutting just outers requires 'surgery' to reform a hole. Perhaps this is the norm but frustrating nevertheless... using pliers to cut your outers gets a better result.
Overall, over-priced two dollar shop cutters with wicked snipping ability like nail cutters for a canine. Perhaps buy nail cutters from your local veterinarian hospital or any cable cutters from your electrical wholesaler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I just wanted to say I have a pair of Draper Expert cutters that look the exact same as these, cost around £40 in Draper catalogue. Very good on bicycle cables good long handles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Like the proverbial hot knife...
... these things cut through tough cable outers that had my old snips shaking, crying and running away to the corner of the garage screaming with fear! They leave a very neat edge in a single, easy cut - something my other pliers or cable snips could only dream of. They have a tendency to pinch the inner sleeve of the cable outer closed, but this can easily be opened back up with a pin or similar.
This item alone has almost halved the time it takes to re-cable my bikes! Only used for a few cuts, so no idea if they will blunt quickly. Might report back if they do.

These cutters are well built, solid and serious. They cut like a hot knife through butter, in an altogether different ball park than using a hack saw and pliers. I have small hands, but I can still grasp the well-shaped handles even when cutting thicker brake cables. Yes they don't have a little notch for re-rounding the cable after the cut, but so what; it takes 2 secs with some pliers. It's also true that the cable can sometimes be squashed flat from cutting; I'd say this is inevitable with ANY cutter, and it only needs to be opened up with a nail or pin which takes another 2 secs. Like other reviewers, my only regret is that I didn't buy these years ago. They work well and are excellent value compared to other brands.
