“Pretty bad”

The Good: Look nice, I guess

The Bad: These are pretty bad cutters. We ordered a batch for our shop. about half wouldn't cut all the way through a cable and housing right out of the box. When we called park, they said it was our fault for not adjusting them before use- which seemed a little ridiculous to me. The half that worked out of the box wore out within a few months.

Overall Review: I expected better out of park. Most of their tools are OK but these were bad and it was horrible for them to say we need to adjust their cable cutters. Stick with Felco or really anything else.

“Anything else is better!”

The Good: Solid feel in your hand....otherwise nothing!

The Bad: Everything. As a professional bike mechanic for years my work benches have always been primarily PARK TOOLS (including my home work bench) because PARK makes the best version of most bike tools out there. PARK cable cutters are the exception! Most other brands are superior to the park cable cutters. They get dull; they bend the housing; fray cables when cutting; plastic handles slide off over time, and basically just SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even Dykes work better in most cases.

Overall Review: Ice tools, Pedros, Spin Doctor, any other generic brand of cable cutters are better than these!
