For the price, these are very nice. They are small and fit small hand fairly well. The bent nose pliers are a little bigger on the tips, than I wanted... I was wanting a bit more fine precision tips. The cutters seems to fairly well, and the long nose pliers are decent, and again the tip isn't precision quality, but small enough to get the job done.
I had purchased this set, just getting into jewelry making, and did not want to spend a fortune on tools if I did not like the craft. I highly recommend this set, it fits nicely in my long fingers, easy to work with!
I've used this set for years and am now buying the set for my neice because she worked with my tools during her vacation here and loved them. They fit in her thin, young hands and they work well with my chubby arthritic older hands.
As a new commer to jewelry making, I loved this set. I recommended if you are new at making jewelry (size helps with getting use to handling tools)and if you have small hands.
I like the compact size of the pliers and they have included a very useful variety. Great for someone just starting.
If you spend any real time beading this isn't for you. After any real time w/these pliers my palms were red and calused. They are not designed well to fit your hands. Not comfortable at all! Would not buy again!
