Seems to be made well like Park Tools usually are. Haven't had it long enough to see how it holds up but this was the cutter I've seen most mechanics use.

Pros

Blade profile is great for cables
Easy to cut cables
Cable cut is always clean
Minimizes flattening

Cons

None

Other Thoughts

I tried using standard wirecutters before and it just crushed everything. I tried to use a Dremel before and it melted the internal sleeve. These Cutters work very well and are a much better tool for the job. Another great tool from Park. :)

Pros

Makes clean cuts of cable without fraying

Cons

none

Other Thoughts

Again this was used for the brake job on my 1975 Royce Union 10 speed. When I would cut cable I used a pair electricians lineman pliers this would cause fraying. If your going to change brakes and cables on your old ten speed or any job where your working with cables get the right tool. This is the right tool.

Sharp so it makes clean cuts.
Plenty of leverage.
Comfy handles.
Has a cable end crimper.

Cons

Price.

Other Thoughts

Park makes quality tools. You get what you pay for and this is the right tool for cutting bike cables without fraying. They will last the average cyclist 10 years if not more, but only if your buddies don't snag them.

Pros

Does a great job trimming both housings and cables. Like all Park products, heavy duty tool, that seems like it will last a long time.

A little on the heavy side, but a great overall tool.
