Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid feel I've used several cable cutting tools in my 30 years as a bike mechanic, and these are my favorite. I really like the built in cable tip crimp, but the cable house ferrule crimp is sadly poor. The Shimano cable cutting tool like this is a little better for the ferrule crimp, but the jaws on this Park are thicker. I also prefer the hidden jaw spring of this Park. The handle is thick, but the flared handle edges near the head catch on my tool bag pouch. The handle clip on the bottom of the tool gets in the way sometimes, when I forget to fold it in. A very good tool that cuts SIS cable house and all standard cables quick and clean and without fraying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from JUNK While at my local REI picking up some parts this cutter caught my eye. I consider myself a tool nut. Gotta have tools!!! Upon cursory examination the tool appeared to be well constructed. Well to make a long story short.. the cutter smashed the cable! My teeth could have made a better cut. There were only a few strands that were cut. Tried adjusting ate cutter in accordance with the instructions and still no clean cut. Now to be fair this tool may be defective, but to say the least it will be returned. Thank goodness I tested the tool on an old piece if cable and not the newly installed one. I will include a piece to cable with the returned product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A requirement if you want to do your own cables... I've never used a set of "real" cable cutters before, and was trying to make do with some regular wire cutters. They ended up fraying the end of the cable terribly, which made it impossible to run through my housings. These cutters made a quick and very clean cut on both the cables and the replacement housings, which turned a long and frustrating job into a 10 minute one! Well worth it, even if I won't use them often...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to do I have small hands, so I was happy to discover that the grip-width is adjustable - I've used cutters that were set so wide I could barely get my fingertips on them, never mind closing the grip one-handed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clever Cable Cutter This was recommended by a kayak shop. While at REI it's in the bike repair section, this was great for cutting some steel cables to fit for kayak skeg and rudder work I did over the weekend. The break is clean, leaving no strands to snag or unravel. I highly recommend for any steel cable repair.
