When you are ready to move up to the best quality tools for your jewelry making and craft projects, I think you will be quite happy with these!
This is a full flush cutter with shear action blades that by-pass each other to produce clean flat cuts. Made of high-grade carbon steel, this elite side cutter will cut up to 12 gauge soft wire (such as copper), up to 2mm thick.
Shear cutting reduces cutting effort (better than compression cutting) and extends blade life because the sharp edges aren't meeting edge to edge. Shear cutting also produces clean, flat cuts.
