These are the best cable cutters on the market. They are standard in most shops, and they never seem to wear out. Buy a pair–they will last you a lifetime.
Keep in mind they are really just for brake and derailleur cables. They do work well on SIS housing but don’t work well with brake cable housing (I use diagonal cutters for that). You can use them to cut spokes out of wheels if you want, though.
