Andy’s Hobby Headquarters joins the nipper wars with their own versions.

Something seems vaguely familiar about them maybe.

Maybe their cost is a clue.

Those look kinda’ like the one I dropped and bent.

This thing arrived from MTSC yesterday. Haven’t had a chance to try it yet.

Looks like Andy made a deal with the Godhand factory. ZM’s are still better.

I have both the GodHand and the Zoukei-Mura nippers on my bench. I prefer the Godhand and really only use the ZM for getting into sprue gates in tight spots where the Godhand won’t reach.

I just ordered a pair for $5.94 CAD from Ali-Express! It was a daily deal.

So my $6 nippers arrived today and I did a comparison with my $35 Micro-Mark ones.

I believe the $6 ones work a bit better cutting ⅛” rod. They certainly are better for cutting close to the sprue, they can really get in there. They also came with a sturdy plastic tip protector and sheath, the Micro-Mark ones came with nothing.

They aren’t as polished as the Micro-Mark but with a fine grit sandpaper they be good as gold.
