I broke my knipex bolt cutters on a 10/0 circle hook. The blades chipped! But it did cut the hook which took a lot of force.
I forgot what brand hook it was, wish I remembered. I won’t try that again.
Took it to Sears and got a replacement though. It’s a good set of cutters.

I think these will suffice. This is the hook in Question.
I'm not going to cut it unless I have to, These are very hard to find.
These Cutters are a brand called Neiko. Chrome Moly Jaws and only $29 bucks shipped.
They have great reviews. My hook cutting woes will be over now.
Klein is supposedly the best, but they are still made overseas and cost 5 times as much.
Its hard to find tools that really made in the US.
No one else makes a set of cutters with chrome moly jaws that I could find.
Almost all are just heat treated steel.
