Engineer Inc, which specializes in hand tools for electronics and general purpose use, makes very decent miniature and precision pliers.
This one, PS-01 long nose pliers, are 5.5″ long and have ESD-safe anti-static handles.
In my opinion, the PS-01 mid-length long nose pliers are a good introduction to Engineer Inc pliers. If you like it, there are many more styles to choose from, such as precision cutters, non-serrated needle nose pliers, and others in between.
The jaws are fine enough to grip small and delicate electronic components enough, but also strong enough for a broader range of tasks.
It has wire cutting blades, for use on copper wire up to 2mm in diameter, and loops at the ends of the handles for a tether.
I own many styles of Engineer Inc mini pliers, and like them a lot. The jaws are well-formed and precise, the handles are comfortable, and overall their pliers perform quite well. I have had zero regrets.

Also… I can’t mention Engineer Inc tools without bringing up their fantastic compact scissors, which are ~$20 at Amazon at the time of this posting. (JML, this plug’s for you! =)
