Great punch but damaged on arrival (11 January 2011)
3 stars because the plastic handle cover was broken on one site despite being in a new, never-opened package. The broken piece doesn't affect the function of the tool, but I will have to hold the plastic in place when using it which is inconvenient. The tool itself would be rated a 5 star. The punched shape is great and will be fun for projects. The squeezing mechanism is a cinch.
