This is a great cutter for both wire workers and bead stringers. It cleanly cuts through most cords and thread but is strong enough for soft wire. Although it is not recommended for wire heavier than 20g, I often use it for 16g silver/copper.

I purchased this cutter to cut off pieces of rhinestone strands for my projects. It cut the through the metal like butter. I didn't have to press hard at all, and it made a clean cut quickly.
