A quality cutterBy: llasher on 19 December 2012I own a number of flush cutters for cutting leads in electronics hobby work. These American made cutters have a quality feel. My only gripe is the stiffness of the spring (meaning they don't always spring open as smoothly as I would like). This seems to be loosening up with use and is a minor issue overall. These aren't the cheapest on the market, but having experienced low quality cutters, and for the amount of use I throw at them, I have no problem paying for a tool that won't snap in my hands (it has happened) or bend after a few uses.
