Forge Steel Bolt Cutters 18" is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great medium duty bolt cutters These were a great price when I bought them. Much cheaper than some of the others on sale. They look and feel sturdy and have a good action to them; Nice and smooth. At only eighteen inches, they don't have the leverage of some of the bigger ones, but these will easily chew through light to medium gauge wire or small padlocks etc. I used these to cut 6mm steel rod to lengths in a pinch. They worked really well! The blades haven't deformed at all and I would think these will be in my toolbox for a good while yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent buy I don't normally bother with reviews but these are excellent. saved hours with a hacksaw, cut thru 25 rusted up bolts on a garden bench in 10 minutes with good mechanical advantage making this possible for me. Not a mark on the jaws. A seriously good value addition to the home toolkit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the job Needed some cheap cutters to trim galvanised mesh to size. These did the job perfectly. Smooth action, comfortable grips. Used for only one job so can't really rate reliability yet
