Shears and cutters are great for making the tasks of cutting cord easy and quick. Good cutters are essential for clean cuts without leaving frayed ends or damaging cord. We carry the Xuron line of shears and cutters because quite simply, in all of the different cutters we've tested, these are the best in terms of ease of use, cutting ability and longevity of the cutting surfaces. Even better, they are made right here in the US. For the money, they are your best option.
