I purchased the 10" nippers believing they would simply be a 10" rendition of the ordinary "design". Not. The largest and most limiting difference is that the distance the jaws will open is extremely limited. You will not be able to get the jaws "set" for a good cut. They are dull, and do not make a clean cut. It is wiser to put your 30 bucks toward a known and trusted "pricey" brand.
