The Clauss 5.75" "Snapper" Wire Cutters offer great performance at a compact size. The micro-sized jaws are constructed with premium quality steel that will hold their edge well despite their modest profile, making the Snapper a good asset to have in any toolbelt to handle cutting tasks that require the utmost precision. Featuring soft cushion grips on the handles as well, hand fatigue will be greatly reduced. This way, you can spend more time making the subtle adjustments and maneuvers often required when cutting small sections of wire. The round points also ensure surrounding wires are not damaged or interfered with during cutting operations, worst case they simply push them out of the way temporarily. All in all, the Snapper is an unassuming powerhouse in its own right, perfect for making the most precise cuts.

  • Micro-sized, premium quality steel jaws
  • Soft, cushion grips
  • Round points

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3” titanium non-stick flex joint knife Received to review. I have not used this for an actual project and have not in the past had a project that would require this tool. I’m guessing it’s for larger projects. It has a light flex to it but pretty sturdy. The blade has a noticeable titanium coating to prevent rust. The grey parts of the handle have a soft rubbery feel that makes it easy to grip and non slip. The red parts of the handle are a harder plastic. It also has the hammer end which would work for setting light nails. My experience hasn’t had me use this type of product yet but it seems like a well built tool that should do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sharpest tool in the bin. These are heavy duty scissors that will cut through paper and materials with ease. I have used them every time I needed to cut things like coupons or bits of material because they put my several pairs of old scissors to shame. From their construction I believe these scissors would last a lifetime. In addition, they come with a small adjustment tool which enables you to tighten them in case you need to cut through several sheets of paper or heavy cloth. I definitly recommend them and once you try a pair I think you will too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little filet knife The 6" Ti filet knife has a great feel in the hand and is super sharp. I use an electric filet knife for removing the filets from the fish, but this little knife is great for removing the skin and ribs as well as all final fine trimming. The blade is flexible yet has enough backbone for safe cutting.The handle grips well and is not slippery when wet. The Titanium bonding keeps the knife sharp and corrosion free. It cleans up well and the Microban treatment keeps it order free. The only addition I recommend is the inclusion of a sheath to protect the blade during storage and transport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little folding knife I bought mine for $3 Canadian at a dollarama, and it was green. But it was very sharp, and well made. I carry it every time I go on my nature walks for whittling while I meditate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design I wasn't sure if I would like the auto retract feature, but I find it very useful. I'm all about getting things done quickly. The blade is quickly and easily exposed by sliding your thumb forward. The blade quickly retracts by releasing your thumb. This gives you the added protection to avoid accidents if you hand slips. However, slipping is very doubtful because of the rubberized handle give you a solid grip on the knife. The addition of the carton slicer offers the added value of being able to cut while applying greater force and avoid the potential of breaking the blade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and comfortable Paring knives get a lot of abuse around our house. Although I try to protect the one that came with our kitchen block set, they all end up getting used as box cutters and X-Acto knives. This knife is holding up well. It is lightweight yet still comfortable, and my wife particularly likes the feel and fit of the handle. The blade is sharp, but shaped different than our other knives which are thicker and beveled towards the edge. This one is thin and straight until the sharp edge. I am not sure how I would sharpen it, but I haven't needed to yet. I would have given it 5 stars if it were a bit longer. I know, it says 2.5" and it is 2.5" long, but it is shorter than my other paring knives and I miss having a little extra blade. Still, especially for the price, it is a very good little paring knife... and box cutter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice knife at a great value! I use this knife mostly for skinning fish and it's very easy to use. The non-slip grip fits my hand well and makes it easy to manuver - I sometimes find my smaller hands have trouble gripping larger knives. The blade is still nice and sharp (haven't had to sharpen yet) so it glides easily through the fish, and is the perfect length for skinning a good sized filet. The blade has decent flexibility - not as much as my previous filet knife - but it gets the job done. Cleans easily and I like the idea of the 'microban protection' since it is used for raw fish. Recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Great set of shears! I wish these came in a kitchen version! These things feel great in my hand. I had to cut bunch of brown thick paper for a project, and these continued to work great, despite cutting for a long, long time through thick almost cardboard like paper. The finish is very good looking and the slight curve to the blades gives them a professional, ominous look. I haven't cut much more than paper and some tinfoil, but I am willing to bet these would slice through most anything you would consider cutting with scissors... Overall, I have to say, these things are scary good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clauss - 7'' Ti Snip - Great shears! Great shears! They worked really well. I have been using them in my office but they would be just as good anywhere in your home or work space. They have nice comfortable grip handles and a serrated edge for cutting. I used them for cutting a variety of things such as paper, cardboard and some plastic packaging. They cut through everything. I also like that they are bent. I think it makes cutting much easier. I received this product in return for my honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many uses! While the EMT shears have been around for a while, replacing the old bandage scissors on every EMT/Paramedics belt, they have many uses beyond cutting off clothing or boots. I've tested these on heavy canvas pants and leather boots, like those commonly worn in construction trades and they performed extremely well. But I also use them while diving to cut monofilament fishing line in close quarters, much safer than using a knife, especially in strong currents.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made very sharp cutting edge received this item last week and as it happened I was wiring my daughter's home. This is the first time I used a pair of cutters with a spring in the middle. At first I thought the spring would get in the way but soon found out you didn't realize it was there. Cutters area good quality and a solid tool only thing I worry about is will the spring come loose and you lose it. I would add a replacement spring with the cutters just in case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Clauss Shear As i examined the package i thought wow, very nice shears. I'll have multiple uses for these cutters. Upon future inspection and use found that the handles are not solid ti metal or metal of any kind throughout the grip. The finger grip or handle is impact/shock resistant grip which bends when trying to cut threw something other than paper or cardboard. The blades cut threw paper and cardboard like razor blades. When trying to cut threw rope or rubber hosing the shears did not have the power. I felt like the grips would fail thus me getting hurt, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp and curved Paring Knife Great paring knife for small items. Curved which helps and small but nice grip handle. Very and almost deceptively sharp. I found that this was better for certain produce such as tomatoes, mangoes and other various produce but not good for extra soft produce; as those items seemed to squish in my hands before cutting properly. I would like a bit more of a curve to the blade, this curve helps but it is so slight it is almost pointless. Other paring knives I have used with curves have a nice arch but fail on all the other qualities that this knife has. I like the grip texture, it does not get slippery when wet with water or produce, it has antimicrobial protection, and titanium bonded blade making harder and stays sharper longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1.5” stiff chisel-end scraper with hammer end Received this product to review. I’ve not yet used this product so don’t know how it will perform but it’s blade is very stiff and has the chiseled end that would be good for scrapping. Also has the hammer end that would work for light hammering such as drywall nails. The titanium non stick coating is noticeable and so I imagine it does a good job protecting the blade from rust. The grey grip feels like a hard plastic and the orange part is softer with a rubber is non slip feel. As far as I can tell this is a practical tool that should do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful Tool to Have Around If the 14 tasks the tool could do weren't listed on the item, I don't think I would be able to list them all. With that said, it certainly is a handy tool to have around when painting. Especially for the bottle opener for a cold one when done for the day. Keep with you whenever you are painting as you'll surely need to use it multiple times whenever you are. Priced right for a gift for the DIYer, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this Clauss knife! I was asked to review the 10" Titanium Bonded chef knife. From Acme United Brands. I have to say, it's the best chefs knife I've ever used. The handle is a soft grip handle making so it doesn't slip while using. The blade itself glides easily while chopping. Very heavy duty knife. Comes with a lifetime warranty. And instructions as to the care of your knife. Little bigger than what I'm used to, but once I used it several times it was wonderful to use. Making my cutting and chopping so much easier. I am very pleased with this knife by Clauss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stays sharp and cuts just about anything. This is our “go-to snippers”. We keep it in the kitchen drawer and use it several times a week. We’ve had it for over a year and it still is as sharp as the first time we’ve used it. I get a lot of cardboard boxes and use it to cut them up in smaller pieces. I’ve also used it to cut branches off of some of my bushes as well as cutting wire. Amazingly after doing all that, it will still cut paper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable and cut well These shears have large and comfortable handles that spread any load across a large area of your hand. The large holes allow all four fingers in one side and a thumb in the other, so you can apply your full hand force if needed. The blades are nicely shaped and ground to a very high sharpness. The shears cut thin paper or thick cardboard equally well. I really love these for gift wrapping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TITANIUM 8" snips I have been useing the 8" snips for the past seven years. they cut good, the only problem is that the internal springs in the snips keep breaking. you can't buy the springs to fix them yourself. and to have clauss fix them you need the sale slips. who saves slips that are 3 to 5 years old. I am a mechanical contractor for 47 yrs.there has got to be a better spring setup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2” titanium non-stick flex putty knife Received this to review. It looks like a nice putty knife. It feels sturdy, all the grey parts of the handle have a soft, grippy feel that I like. The red parts of the handle are a harder plastic. The blade has a medium flex to it and is noticeably coated with the non-stick titanium. It has a good feel in the hand. I have not done any work with it yet but will use it to fix a hole in the wall and from what I can tell it should do the job and be comfortable to use. It also has a hammer end that might be used to set small nails with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for this Home Chef I like this knife. I used it to cut carrots, and sliced onions for soup. I sliced tomatoes for salad. I like the handle size and gripiness. It does not get slippery when wet or greasy. I also like the slickness of the blade. Stuff does not stick to it easily. It glides through the stuff I am chopping or slicing. My wife has much smaller hands than mine and does not like the handle or the blade shape. She is a chef. She likes a slim handle she can choke up on. I am a home cook. I am not an artist. I want a substantial knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ambidextrous My wife is right-handed and I am left-handed -- these scissors work great for both of us. If you are right-handed you might not even know this is an issue, because most scissors are made right-handed unless you buy special left-handed scissors. For me, most regular scissors fold paper rather than cut; cloth gets chewed. These shears work as well for me as the ones made especially for southpaws. They are firm, but not tight; light weight, but not flimsy. When something needs cutting, both my wife and I reach for these first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stiff 1.5 Stiff is stiff. Zero bend. If you need zero bend when using a putty knife/scraper the 1.5 inch non stick chisel end scraper is just right. Blade is fully stainless steel. Blade is also rust resistant and hold putty well. The butt end has a built in hammer end so you can tap in drywall nails. Total length is just approx 8.5 inch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big cutting power, comfy small package Ok, the first thing about these I noticed was that they look silly and disproportionate. When I went to use them though, I dont care what they look like, because they are some of the smoothest and best cutting shears Ive ever used. Their handles are extremely comfortable and ergonomic, and the leverage on the relatively unassuming blades makes them cut almost effortlessly. Bottom line: These shears are awesome. They are super comfortable, super effective, and super easy to use. Buy these. You will be impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No rusting! The thing that sets this drywall knife apart from other similar knives is the rust-proof coating. The blade doesn't rust even if left 'wet'. My other joint knives are all rusty to one degree or another. I usually have to sand off the rust before using them, so I really appreciate this knife. Aside from that great feature, This is my go-to knife for most joint compound work . I tend to use a really wide 10-11" for final finishing, but this will even work for that in a pinch. The flex is great for smoothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong and Easy to Use Wire Cutters I bought these after realizing that I didn't actually have a good pair of wire cutters. I was always using my needle nose plyers which were just frustrating. What a difference this tool has made for me. They feel great in your hand and the cut is clean and precise. I highly recommend!
