    Hi guys!

    I'm planning on replacing my old MT with either a Victorinox Handyman or a Hercules, mainly for the tweezers, scissors and the much better saw, and actually because I don't get much use of the pliers, however they come in handy from time to time.

    I now that if I really wanted some capable pliers I should definitely go for a Leatherman or Vic Spirit, but I'll only use the pliers for light tasks, so my question is: Are the small pliers on Victorinox models any good? Could I really cut some sort of chicken wire with the cutters on them?

    They actually , I have a handyman , and use them on small nuts , general grabbing , light stranded wire cutting . They are pretty strong , and not cast like the pliers on most small multi's . They are protected from excessive torque by the very short handle .

    They are great for small stuff. My brother and I use them around computers and they work out perfectly
