On all the safety wire pliers I had, the cutters are weak and go dull fast. I always use a separate hardened side snipper. Most iritating, all these pliers have a slightly serrated plier face. That is pretty dangerous, as it does leave marks and create a weak point in the safety wire where breaks will occur. Yes, the wires will stay put a bit easier than smooth ones, but as yourself why ;)<br>Ifyour safety wires show these marks (mine do), then you can take a small file and *very carefully* get rid of the serrated faces to make them smooth. If you have never filed anything before, don't do it! Yu have to make sure to keep both jaw surfaces parallel and flat (not rounded); and if you remove too much material the grippers will not grip anymore. You can file away some of the jaw material to make them close again, but it's a pain to get it right.
