Review by photoleif on March 20th, 2012
Gets an "OK" 3 rating because the jaws don't appear to be more than hardened steel. They have consequently become dented a bit by cutting nails, which is what I got it for in the first place. I suspect if you use it for cable, it will be great. I have since upgraded to the larger version, which seems capable. In general this works, but a do-over would result in getting a different model.
Review by Bigplanz on November 2nd, 2009
A surprisingly useful tool. I bought it on sale, less than $10. I figured it would be marginally useful for thin chain or wire. Well, it has cut every chain (some pretty thick) I've needed it to, plus a 3/16 inch steel rod I needed to trim. The blades are unaffected by any of these cuts and not dulled or gouged.
