If your looking for a great pair of Nippers to either start with or even replace an old worn out pair. This is it. Very sharp and we'll made. handle feels reasonably comfortable. All that is missing is a cap to help keep it sharp or from rusting etc. Which is about $5 costing about $20 in total which is not bad for a pair of Nippers that will last you a long time. And the old worn out pair can still be used as your rough cutter nippers.
