i work in NYC and i think channellock donated a bunch of these because we got one on our rig about a year ago and i know the cheap guys didnt buy it and leave it on the rig for everyone to use. we use it on wires down primarily and i have yet to come across something it cant cut so i bought one for myself as a self extrication tool.
the only complaint i have its big, and its heavy but i got rid of the spanner i use to carry cause this got a spanner on it so that offset the weight a little. other than that its really good. if you are caught up on wires or something and you cant cut yourself out with this, to be brutally honest your gonna die. if this wont cut whats got you caught up on no one will have something better and your in big trouble, and thats why i carry it. i think its the best cutting tool a person can have on them. eventhough its big and heavy i just man up and carry it
