There is a caveat to using them.

 WARNINGS
Do NOT use to cut steel or ACSR.

This will leave wonderful little notches in the cutters.  :dunno: My trapline cables are 3/16 stainless.

For a reason!
Most people don't carry good pliers.

Not a snare, but North Dakota puts one out for removing body grip traps from a dog.

Yea, you linked conductor cutters. Itís not that cutting snare wire may ruin them (it is an emergency) but they just plain may not cut steel.

Compound action wire cutters is what you want, they are dikes with extra leverage. We used them to cut the high strength number seven energized hanger wires in precipitators.

And these are likely among the toughest diagonal cutters on the market

Thank you for the info on cutters
I have a question in your opinion do you think the ones with the heads that come to more of a point or the kliens that are flatter in the end?
Is it the leverage that is important on these?
I see they have some compact and then different lengths.
