    Great nippers! I began shopping through Gundam Planet because I had read these nippers were a great choice. I agree, they are great!

    I will say that I am on my second pair because my first pair broke. I take the responsibility because I was using them as my only nipper and treated them pretty rough.

    This has a single blade and the other side is dull. The blade part is very thin, which is what gives it the ability to cut so easily without leaving huge stress marks like thicker double edge nippers. I was using these to cut at all kinds of funny angles and through the thicker parts of the gates when removing the pieces from the runners. They could handle the beating at first but then the blade began to bend a little more when cutting through thick pieces and eventually it chipped pretty bad.

    Now I first use a Mr. Nipper Cutter (also sold through Gundam Planet. The one with the green handle) to cut the pieces out of the runners and then I cut the nubs off with these side cutters. I am hoping that this strategy will significantly increase the lifespan of my second pair.

    These are great and I hope this review helps anyone considering purchasing these.

    On par with Godhands!! I LOVE these nippers! Ive had them for over a year and they still cut phenomenally. At our build days I'll often swap nippers with someone who is asking about what nippers to buy next. they all say that these cut like butter. Even Godhand owners hesitantly admit that the GP nippers cut just about as smooth as Godhands. The value of the GP nippers was exactly what I was looking for since I couldnt see myself spending $80 (at the time) on nippers. Not to mention that they always seemed to be out of stock and I had heard horror stories of the Godhands breaking after only a few uses. I understand that Godhands are a Precision Tool but whatever the GP nippers lack in precision, they make up for in durability and value!

    Great cutters and a great value In terms of quality and value for money, these are easily as good as the Tamiya Side Cutters. I've owned four pairs of these over the last few years, and the one time I had a problem (manufacturing defect in the metal; totally invisible), GP's customer service responded instantly and sent a new pair completely for free, even though I'd bought the original on Amazon. If there's a sale on, or a free shipping deal, you simply cannot go wrong with these. For the money and the value, these are the best nippers going, as far as I'm concerned.

    Awesome Nippers If your looking for a great quality near or equal to the God Hands Nippers but for a fair price then you cant go wrong with this they are a great investment if you used them properly and take care of them it would be a long time for a replacement.

    Broken tip before ever using it. When I received it everything looked fine, did a test cut on some runners and the tip has already broken off.

    Best cutters I've ever used! The Gundam Planet side cutters are amazing! Because of these building gunpla has become so much more efficient for me - I no longer require an exacto to cut off excess remaining funner nubs at all! Just straight to a little bit of sand paper and boom! done! So glad I have these now!

    Cut well at first then started squeaking and leaking. The nippers cut well until about half way through my Origin RX-78-2 then started loosening up, squeaking and oozing a rusty brown metallic smelling liquid around the GP logo. I put some ptfe lubricant on them to reduce the squeak and much more rusty liquid came out... Is this common? Is the initial lubricant causing rust?

    Anyway, liquid aside, the blade and anvil don't always align properly for a clean cut now as the hinge loosened up more than I think it should've after initial break in.

    They were kind of expensive to start failing during the first model kit even though they were handled carefully. My experience may be atypical but as this was also part of my first purchase from Gundam Planet, so I'm not super thrilled...

    So Smooth!!!! So nice to use! Such a satisfying cut, just glides through the plastic. I use the Mr. Nipper Cutter to remove from runner & these to remove the gate on the piece. Just an absolute delight to use! Highly Recommend!

    Massive time saver. You've probably already heard about how good these are from other places on the internet, but they really are deserving of the hype. These cut through plastic like butter without stressing the plastic; it saves so much time otherwise spent on sanding since you can clip as close as possible without repercussions. Has a great weight and feel, and the small, fine point tips are perfect for small parts on crowded runners. Worth every penny.
