Saves money on cutters. I've had a couple of Bahco cutters I used for electronics ruined by my son and a decent (Lindstrom) pair totally vanished not long after he started playing guitar.

I usually just bend the ends back and forth until they break. If a string is too thin for that I'll use cutters, or pliers to hold it firmly while twisting until it breaks.
