    Bought some Channelock pliers and cutters over 35 years ago and still use them today.

    i have a pair of knipexwith a hole blown in them from when my lad cut through a 6mm T/E. plumber told him it was definitely dead. proves both my beliefs.....

    1. lad is daft for not testing before cutting.
    2. plumbers are inveterate liars.

    I had a pair of CK Combi cutters, was distracted (long story but involved the (not full ticket) son of a hotel manager who was over my shoulder) cut the wrong cable.... Blew a hole in them.
    Brought another pair.
    The following week, same hotel the painter asked to borrow my new shiny combi cutters and cut through a Pyro cable he thought was dead
    Blew a small hole in them.
    Still use the today, despite the small nick.
