Default Pinch-it rod cutter

Will this work well on tube and rod up to 22mm? Or am I better off getting small Jaws?

I just score it and touch it with a hot rod. Works up to 50mm. Would probably work on larger too, but I never use anything larger.

That's how I planned to do it, but couldn't find the score knife and my regular pistol grip cutter wouldn't bite in enough to get a score. Everything under 18mm I just used wheeled nippers on and they cut fine.
