I’ve been using the same one for at least four years and love it. The jaws are not as sharp now but still work so I guess it’s time for a new one. I definitely have gotten my monies worth.

James McKinney

I have had mine for a year and a half. No issues noted and they are very handy. I generally clip them to the loop on the pocket of my fishing shirt and stick them in the pocket. I fish from shore, boat and kayak. They are always part of my minimum requirement kit.

Tim Benson

I love mine. You can prevent the screws from rusting by dripping liquid rubber electric “tape” onto the screw heads.

Bruce Traugott

Ave them and love them. At thirteen dollars I keep several spares. They do rust if not cared for.

Agree on both points. Great tool but it can rust.

I have had several of these items for a number of years. I like them very much because they are quite sharp and cut very easily. The only downside I found was if I don’t lock it closed when done using it I have found that I have dropped a line into the jaws and cut or nicked the line.

Richard Doane

I have used this tool a lot. Have bought several over the years. But it does have problems cutting braid.

Lionel Sheikboudhou

It is one of the rare piece of equipment that can be considered « perfect » for a job in one’s box.

David Caldwell

I use them exclusively. But only problem they don’t last to long. Usually replace 2 or 3 times a year

Terence Buydos

ordered one yesterday so knowing amazon prime, i’m expecting a truck tomorrow!. It seems like most of your cons involved the chance of the points cutting you when sitting. Why not just kiss the tip on a grinder and change it from a point to a blunt tip? I don’t see any reason why you need the tip to be a point.


I’ve been using them for about 2 years now. I also gift them to everyone I know who fishes.

Doug Spears

Been using these for several years and love them. Since I bought the first one I haven’t used anything else to cur line. I’ve got one on my work bench, one clipped to my tackle bag, one on my Just Grab It belt and one on the console of the boat. They have (or used to anyway) a version with slightly longer jaws which is also handy for doing small modifications to soft plastics (trimming / notching tails, etc.). Great gifts.

Tom Leckwart

These rock, super sharp and last about 2 years in a salty environment, but what else at this price point will last longer?? I really like the retractable hook, and both of my bags will always have this tool on them.

Dave Waller

Definately spray with a shot of rust stop spray….it will rust if left in salt air!

Rich Despault

I’ve used one for the past 3 – 4 years and love them. They will go dull after a couple of years but are cheep enough to replace. I keep a new one in both my freshwater tackle box as well as my salt box. I prefer to clip it on the higher loop on my Columbia fishing shirts, great product.

Bob Williams

Has anyone else had trouble with them getting dull and any ideas sharping them again.

Jack Waters

I have used this tool for years , have it attached to the holster for my pliers. Quick and easy to get to.

Tom Davis

I have one of these in my yak and one in my boat. They are OK, but neither has been great at holding an edge sharp enough for good clean repeated cuts on braid. I feel they are great coming out of the gate, but lack a little after only moderate use. I sort of think of them as a backup option if I have forgotten or misplaced my primary cutters. My go to is a pair of Danco Drifters. They have held an edge very well for me and f they get dull, I can just replace the cutters.
