Wire cut with these tools will be very flush with almost no "pinch". They have a fine set screw stop builtinto the handle to prevent these exceptionally sharp edges from dulling themselves, even when you apply a very strong cutting force.

These cutters are recommended and used in many of our Wirework
These pliers come in a long or short handle.Some folks like them long, some like them short. It really is apersonal preference and is usually determined by the size of your hand.
Ihave been working with the President of Tronex helping him test andperfect his cutters and pliers (coming soon) to fit the Wireworkingworld. His tools are primarily made for the electronics & medical fields but he ismoving into the jewelry making market. I have been testing these RazorFlush cutters to find their breaking point and to determine the maxgauge that should be cut with them. I have been cutting 14 gaugeSterling and they have yet to dull. Cutting wire that is too thick fora certain cutter, shouldn't break it (unless you are cutting somethingharder than Silver) but it will dull it faster. That is the concernwith these. They are literally like razors at the edges....they cutamazing! So I would keep these Razor Flush Cutters to 18 gauge andsmaller to preserve their sharpness. If you need to cut an occasionalthicker wire, just make sure to use the back of the cutter (towards thejoint) to preserve that precious sharp tip. Do not use the tip to cut anything thicker than 22 gauge.
These cutters are great forfine silver fusing because to fuse you need an extra flush cut. Youcould cut a bit thicker with these if working with fine silver becauseit is so much softer.

I use these cutters all the time and absolutely love them. The price shouldn't scare anyone away as they are well worth it.
Love, love, love these cutters! They are the bomb. I was a little hesitant because of the price, but they are well worth it and I use them ALL the time.
