I tried these pliers a couple of years ago at the Bead and Button Show in one of Rebeca Mojica's classes. They are fabulous! I received an email from Beaducation that the pliers were finally available to purchase and I bought them immediately. I use Tool Magic on my other Lindstrom pliers, and also on my Tronex and Wubbers pliers. I don't need Tool Magic on these pliers! I highly recommend these to anybody who likes chain maille!
I consider myself to be an intermediate level chain mailler (Not sure if this is a word).
