cutting copper wire wire without messing it up?

I want to cut some soft copper wire that is .3mm in diameter (pretty thin). Normally I would just use a wire cutter to cut it, but the problem with the wire cutter is it leaves the end all crimped and smooshed! 

Does anyone out there have a good method for cutting wire this thin that leaves the end relatively square and not sqaushed? 

Thanks in advance, chuckT.

Hi Chuck, The other thing you could do is buy yourself a pair Xurcon Track cutters, these are specially ground so when you cut your wire it leaves a squire face on your wire and they are suitable for any non-ferrous metals up to 1.5mm O/D.

 

You can even use them on thicker sprues.
