Oh, at that point, if I have to cut something larger, I bust out my
trusty Knipex VDE cutters. Project Farm on Youtube did a stress test
of pliers and those (which I already had at that point) held up pretty
well, with the jaws getting damaged very little even in unrealistic
scenarios, compared to competition, only some of which held up. You
can't be using the tiny delicate pliers for everything. I'd only use
those Erem 522N's for component leads or low-gauge wire. Having a good
set of inexpensive scissors to do anything and everything with is a
nice thing though. Personally sometimes I also use an old damaged
butter knife or teaspoon for similar reasons.

Project Farm also has a video on pliers. Bear in mind that the screw
removal addition seems to make the pliers perform worse in what pliers
otherwise normally do. Also it burrs screws... But if you have a need,
you have a need.
