Does anyone out there know of any angled diagonal cutters which are the sharpest and keep their edge. I have been buying Kliens but if you pull a few staples the become dull pretty quickly. I don't want any junk and I'm willing to pay for a good product.
... I have one crappy angled pair of Klein "dykes" that I use for staple pulling, cutting nails,brads, even toe-nails...and my good Journeyman pair that I use only for cutting copper.. and nostril hair.. Russ

Knipex, Induction hardened, I cut everything with them and they never seem to dull or rust like the Kleins do. IMHO the German made tools like Knipex and Wiha are better tools and less expensive than Klein.
The Blue handle Klien Dikes are harder than the red handle ones. I cut fish tapes and bolts with my blue handle klien dikes all the time. IMHO If you use your dikes to locate breakers it will ruin them, Blows a nice little hole right in the middle of the jaws

I cannot get used to carring two sets of tools. Every time that I get a new screwdriver, I put the old one in my tool bag, for chopping or chiseling, but I always end up using the new one that is in my pouch. LoneG, I'm going to give those Knipex a shot. Electricman, you are a dope!
