This cutter is GREAT for your thicker gauges. Like we said above, you can cut up to 12 gauge, but if cutting Fine Silver (which is significantly softer than Sterling) you can cut up to 8 gauge.
These cutters are great for
fine silver fusing because to fuse you need an extra flush cut. You
could cut a bit thicker with these if working with fine silver because
it is so much softer.
