If you find yourself with a desire to spend an afternoon replacing your aging shift or brake cables at home, you're going to need Shimano's TL-CT12 Cable Cutter to get started. Updated slightly from the previous version, the TL-CT12 boasts sharper blades and improved longevity compared to its predecessor, and its chrome-plated carbon steel construction gives it rigidity while you work and the assurance that it'll be a tool you can keep around in your bench for a while. The TL-CT12 also features a built-in crimper and a needle for reshaping the housing after cutting. Shimano specifically shaped the handle opening and handles themselves to make using the cable cutter easy on your hands.
