Electrical Precision Cutter for Wire Up to 0.9mm

These handy wire cutters are perfect for snipping small wires up to 0.9mm thick, such as those found in Cat5e and Cat6 cables. The angled cutting end makes it easy to cut flush with a flat surface, such as a wall, and gives you clear line of sight to the cutting point for precision placement of the cut. The pointed tip allows you to easily cut individual wires within a tight bundle.

The grips are made of red plastic, with blue rubber grips for added insulation, comfort, and grip. The bright, contrasting colors mean you won't overlook these cutters when you clean up the worksite and they are easy to locate within your tool box.

Pros: Sharp

Basically, these cutters are worth their price.

I've had these cutters for years. I only use them on small wires and zip-ties. They may have some scratches but they are in great shape and work well for their purpose. The angled tip allows you to get right up next to what you're cutting, giving you as flush of a cut as you can get.

These cutters are lightweight due to the flat metal components and the handles being mostly plastic. The handles are nice and large with a good texture, giving these cutters a great feel.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Poor quality

Broken out of the box. The handle slipped off and the spring doesn't work and looks like it came from another model cutter as it doesn't seem to fit at all. The cutter opens all the way and has no stop, so even after fiddling with the spring to try to get it to work, it just comes apart again. Disappointed.

Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 8143. If I may ask, can you email me a picture of the issue at ? Also, do you happen to have the order number so we can look into this matter further? My apologies again for the trouble and thank you in advance!

Pros: Very sharp, cuts clean and smooth

Cons: Glue used on the grip handles is very poor.
They are larger than I assumed they would be.

These are excellent cutters, but I had a few qualms with them:

1.) the oversized grips are huge and take up a lot of real estate in a tool bag

2.) the glue holding the oversized grips is not very strong—***carefully*** (see next list item) remove these upon purchase and re-glue with Gorilla Glue or something of that nature

3.) when a grip falls off—and it most assuredly will, mine lasted 1 use before falling off—be very careful to not lose the spring mechanism. I lost mine when I was tinkering and now have a non-spring-loaded pair of cutters.

Aside from all that, I do like these cutters. They are very sharp and cut smoothly. As long as you have real estate in your tool bag and heed my warning about the grip glue, I'd recommend these.

Quality Product

Pros: countoured design to hand.
Spring back works well.

Cons: Monoprice should manufacture a larger size, full-on wire cutters for something like 12 guage or 14 guage electrical wire (copper conductors NMD). While this might work on the wire, I would refrain and save this for lower voltage, smaller gauge wire.

This product works great! I ordered one for work and will be ordering another for home.

Cuts very clean and flush

Pros: Cuts flush and clean

Cons: Why do the handles have "wings" that stick out at the ends?

Cheap, low-price, fast delivery. Very sharp, cuts clean and flush. What more do you want to ask for?
