These are very easy on the hands. They also have padded grips which I really like.

These things are fabulous! I don't use them on every hog ring I come across, but there are some that it just makes sense to cut off. Thanks for the recommendation.
Is this the 9 inch model?

but it is better to twist them off like you are saying ?
i guess when you cut them, you now have two pieces to take off.
i bought these for cutting 1/4" and 5/16" stainless cable
they will out perform most smaller compound cutters
but they are not cheap

I was checking this brand out on eBay. They're 10 bucks less there.

my son calls them the -- "save the world cutters" -- because he says
" if the chips are down and everything is about to hit the fan,
and he has to pick a pair out of the pile, in true action hero style, he knows those will do it"

I picked up a 10" side cutter from the Harbor Freight store in NJ for $5.99. It cuts hog rings like a hot knife through butter.
