Throw a pair of these red-handled Technician’s Scissors in your toolbox. They have stubby 1½" long blades for cutting tough, stiff stuff. These are best for minor electrical work like stripping and cutting wires, along with tackling whatever other tasks that require a rugged pair of scissors with sharp blades. The short blades keep the business end closer to you, for better control. Their small stature belies their toughness.
