This is the best wire/shield cutter for micro soldering. I use this to cut the shields away from the newer model iPhones (X, XS, XS Max, XR, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max). With these newer models, you have to cut away the shields because using heating will disturb the the chips below the shields and then you will have other problems. I was using one of those Hakko CHP Micro Cutters for a long time, but these new wire cutters blow them away. Trust me, get one of these and you won’t regret it.
