Great Quality tool, heavy weight, good strong spring action and sharp...no problems cutting rock and perfect for fragging SPS or cutting out base rock chunks in your tank. Very happy with this tool.

7" Cutting Shears

The cutting shears did not cut very well. Still had to use the shears more like pliers and break off the part of the coral intended for fragging. The break was cleaner than with pliers but left something to be desired. The best improvement would be to make the cutting edge concave for a sharper edge and provide less resistance when cutting tough stony coral. I would recommend this product with caveats.

horrible product

This is NOT surgical grade stainless steel so it will rust. I took great care of it, rinsing in fresh water after each use in my reef but still rusted. It also stuck often and had to manually separate the cutting blades. Save your money and buy one that is "surgical" grade!

Waste of Money...

The shears rusted on me in about 2 weeks even after rinsing it in under the faucet after every use. I struggle to get it open and closed now.

Nice Shear

Nice heavy duty frag cutters. I have used them several times and they cut very nicely. I even used them to cut the base off a frag plug, so I would have a disk. Very happy with them. One downside, I don't really like the wire spring in the handle. If you are not careful, it will come apart. Easy, fast fix however, could have been designed a bit better. There than that, great strong, heavy duty cutters.

Rust within 2 weeks

I found that the area where the two pieces met on the shears rusted very fast and essentially they have become a waste of money to me.

Great Cutter

The ease of fraging sps exceeded my expectation as comparing to other cutters which I had used before.
