    Just the only one in your house.
    Sharp little buggers aren't they.
    Up under my big toe nail. Inconcievable. And hurt like blazes

    Tip for wires you can't hold to snip - put 1 finger over the end of the wire or use a scrunched up tissue snip & the end won't fly off ;)

    I'd rather get these, real Stainless Steel blades, cost a little more but if I need to get a new pair of clippers these will be the ones:

    Compare how clean the blade edges are in the above pic with the link of Tez's pair's photo :

    The pair I linked is superior because the blades are better quality & won't dull as quickly ;)

    Blade quality > Gimmicky lock, that is all.

    Seriously, if you need them to lock closed then use a bit of SS or Kanthal wire & wrap around the metal part of the handles. Personally I don't need a locking mechanism & I'll gladly pay a couple of $ more to get a quality set that is going to last at least twice as long & probably much more than that because you can sharpen the blades on the SS ones & know they will stay sharp.

    Well there's the third thing.
    Great clue from Doggie about good price on nic, the day after my order.
    Great clue from Laurie about new Serpent (the best single coil attie ever) the day after my FT order.
    And now another great clue, 2 days after I ordered the first recommended.
    I'm gonna cancel tomorrow so I can get ahead, and capitalise on all the good advice available.

    Lol - HSmok has a great deal at the moment -but Hiliq has always been good for me Aqua but did you use the discount code for 15% off? Please tell me you did!
    And Ps - I have the Tez clippers in my cart - if he is happy that's good enough for me :) ( much as I love Noe's recommendations)

    Discount code .......YES!
    And I have a very untidy tool kit, so easy locking mechanism is useful.
    Silver linings

    I just use the plato cutters. I doubt significant difference. I'm not saying anyone else should use these. Just that I do, and don't see flush cutters as worthy of such lengthy debate

    Lol - We can count on you to bring us back to reality Doggie :winky: and Ps, I have no idea what Plato cutters are - I do have good ones that came in my coil building kit but a bug bear is that they dont have a locking thingo and are hard to pop back in the case.
    Yes - first world probs :violin:

    I have Plato cutters and quite honestly go back to plan A on many occasions.

    Nail cutters.

    Glad you brought them up
    Was reluctant to confess that I use my blunted flush cutters for toenails.

    I have toyed with the idea of buying some other better quality looking pair but there is the problem.
    Just because they look better in a picture are they?

    Have reached the conclusion I need something to cut thin wire as flush as possible and that's it.

    Nail cutters lol please don't remind me...
    I was using them on 28-32g at the start. Then I got a roll of 24g....
    Do I need to tell you what happened next?

    Loss of an eye or a nasty accident involving flying disconnected parts.

    Lol that was my problem. The big one took too much space in my little toolkit. Small one feels great to you. I think you'll like it. Locking mechanism is great too. Avoid cutting yourself on the blade but still can't prevent you from getting stabbed haha

    I've run out of areas that a new one can be torn.
