Leverage, says you. I think I feel a change in the wind, says I.

Gotta say, these are some of the best cutters on the planet. Coming from an background where cutting 4 gauge stainless steel wire was an everyday occurrence. I just happened to run across these many, many years ago. Fortunately they are still in production, unfortunately you cannot pick them up at your local hardware store.
For those of you that have tired hands, and who of us doesn’t. These high leverage cutters are great for everyday use. I can cut 4 gauge stainless by hand with some effort, anything smaller is a piece of cake. Using this on heavy silver is like taking a hot knife through butter. They fit pretty comfortable in your average hand. Roughly about $65USD for these, its a lot of money, but they pay for themselves in the long run.
