I’ve been looking for a heavy duty wire cutter to cut the stainless steel findings I use in my jewelry-making projects. I ruined several pairs of wire cutters before finding this particular one. The stainless steel findings I use are about 22 gauge. This side cutter is made from carbon steel. It’s very durable and features a comfortable, no-slip grip. It works great on my iron-based findings too; I don’t have to apply too much pressure to cut through the pieces. It retails for $9.99. I bough it at Joann Fabrics and because they always have coupons, I got 50% off. Great quality, great price. I highly recommend these side cutters for any jewelry-making projects.
