Wire cutters cut wire - pretty simple, right? So why are there so many different types out there? Here's the #411: cut wire, headpins, eyepins, leather cord and jewelry stringing thread/wire with these babies.
TIP: Make sure the flat side of the cutter is closest to the wire edge you wish to cut off. You'll forget this a few times and then it will be a habit, trust me!
TIP2: DON'T use these on Memory Wire or you'll cry (see below).
