Pedros cable cutter tears right through cable, housing, and wire, leaving a smooth, finished end.
- Comfortable cushioned handles
- Heat-treated tool steel
However, Park's CN-10 has the same build quality but also incorporates a crimper for end caps. The Park tool lists for the same price, and does a tidier job with end cap ferrules than needle-nose pliers.
Due to the bonus, or value-added, on the Park CN-10, I'm going to say I would not recommend the Pedro's, but I think it has the edge in terms of build quality, durability, and use. IF you have your ferrule-crimping dorted, then this is the cable cutter for you.
PROS: Cuts well, Durable, Stout, Well Made
CONS: Outclassed by Park's
They cut flawlessly through any type of housing or cable, including the extra thick Yokozuna brake housing.
The cutters do not include a place to crimp ferrules. I use wire snips for this purpose and find them to do a cleaner job then the compression crimp ability of similar cable cutters.
I was a mechanic in a past life and these were the cutters I chose to use in the shop.
