Shoot in the eye version?
Or a better version? I mean, the metal .. is it any better than the eye-raping carbon steel?

Interestingly enough I am still using the same set of nail clippers I used on my first coil build.

I was the same for the longest...Until I saw a pair of flush cutters on sale. Ever since the first time I used them I haven't looked back. It so nice to be able to get in those tight spots and clip it right to the edge. Especially on small decks like the Goblin mini. As long as your careful, you needn't worry about a stray coil leg in the eye..Although one time when I wasn't paying attention one came super close and hit me in the lens of my glasses..

Best cutters are the ones I used for electronics stuff.
Hardened SS with spring load.

I own 2 exactly like these just different handle cover.

The only special tool I have ever bought for coiling was a dedicated ohms tester. To each your own as the saying goes.

Edit.... I also built a few wire welders along the way.

I bought a Plato cutter and then I started seeing everyone with one eye!

With the jaws closed, put a bead of silicone in the concave side. Don't need a big blob- just a thin even skim will do. After cured, slice through the silicone carefully at the juncture of the jaws. The silicone will now hold the ends when cut. Also there are versions w/a wire end trap built into the tool.

No matter the cutters put your spare hand over the cut.
My interests include logic and reason. If you have a problem with that that's your problem. Lose the idiotic fallacies, learn how to think and act like a sensible adult, or get lost.

Nothings wrong with carbon steel side cutters.
If you don't know how to use a tool chances are you are going to hurt yourself with it.

In the wrong hands even a spoon can cause serious injuries...

This is a great pro tip. I'm going to set this in motion this evening for both of mine.

WTF!
You don't know how to use side cutters?
Vapers are increasingly becoming a bunch of fragile ladies!!!
This is embarrassing.

I use the plato style cutters. I know a piece of wire might go flying.
Before that, it was nail clippers. Same outcome.
I also don't wear nappies all day long, although I know at some stage I may need to go to the toilet.

FFS! Man up!
