Aubuchon Hardware Tip: Bolt cutters, like any cutting tool, often get dull over time. You can purchase sharpening tools for bolt cutters to extend the life of the tool, but if you damage the cutting surface of your bolt cutter, don't assume you must buy a new set of cutters. Replacement heads are made for many brands, and you may be able to simply swap out the head, saving the expense of replacing the whole tool.
