(but seriously though - 250mm straight side cutters will clip the tip off the snap on one with nary a nick on the Knipex).

    Knipex Link I've had a pair of these since I started wrenching in 01. Would recommend.

    Also highly recommend the Cobra or Alligator pliers (depending on your preference for a locking slide mechanism or a free sliding) if you do much Adjustable Pliers work. The teeth are cut like that of pipe wrenches so they dig in to what you're reefing on - I've had frozen tie rods where you squeeze both handles until the teeth dig in, then you could just push on the back of it they bit so hard.

    And last one is just a PSA for anyone that does any kind of mechanical work - get yourself a flush cutter (I think I have this one at the moment - Knipex Link ) for trimming zip ties perfectly flush - no more sharpened tips to render blood (Personal pet peeve as a mechanic).
    They aren’t easy to find but flat cut toenail clippers are great for tie wraps as well

    I use them on bicycles all the time

    I hated my Comfort Grips....eventually sold most of them (still have a few floating) and all my Knipex is just regular dipped.
    They are way too bulky and are not ergonomic at all. YMMV though
    Well, blue and red are my colors, so it was a natural choice really. Yes, I'm that shallow.

    Fashion vs Function eh....

    I don't wanna talk you out of them but if you have the opportunity to order like item in regular handle and compare and contrast, you might find the latter finitely far superior is use.
    I did say it's subjective but the Comfort handles are nothing close to comfort...Just trying to save you from some Buyers remorse
