Sweet!, June 27, 2018 5 stars
Pros
Break small strips and pieces where it's tough to get leverage. Good quality and easy movement. Adjustable.
Cons
Other Thoughts
I don't know what I did without these. Great for nice even pressure. Easy in your hand.

Not what I hoped, June 27, 2018 1 stars
Pros
These are fabulous for 1 or 2 mm precision nibbles and will save many trips to the grinder. These nippers are beautifully well constructed, lightweight and easy to hold.
Cons
They will not snip more than a thin sliver at a time. They will not nip thin glass or mirror. The way I hold my glass to nip, they catch and pinch my skin. Expensive.
Other Thoughts
I would give them 5 stars if my intention was to purchase a "supplemental" tool for making tiny shaping nips. BUT, I needed to replace my dull old wheel nippers and these won't cut a half inch or even quarter inch at a time. They will not nip thin glass either. It was a big investment for a very limited use item. I still need to buy another pair of nippers for regular snipping strips into mosaic squares as these won't do that job at all. Big dissapointment because they are a quality tool, just for a different application.

too much trouble, August 30, 2009 2 stars
Pros
The colors are beautiful. The mixes are vibrant and original.
Cons
Some pieces are missing corners; an inch or two up to half the sheet is not in the box. This "VOID" of missing half sheets of glass causes the adjoining pieces to shatter (first box 10 pieces, second box 12 pieces).
Other Thoughts
Do not buy this glass if you need whole/full pieces. Expect damage to 1/3 the case and plan accordingly to avoid disappointment.
