    These are the sharpest tippet cutters I've ever used. Compact and easy to carry.

    I've have a couple of pairs of these nippers. They work fine and I like the trout skin affect. The only drawback is that the hook eye reamer is a little stubby and will not clean out the eyes on really small flies otherwise they are great.

    These nippers look awesome. I love the trout skin look. The nippers are constructed very nice as well. They cut my tippet with no problems at all. I bought these nippers to replace an older/cheaper pair. I like that they have tungsten carbide in the nippers.

    Very sharp, & can angle the corner in nicely to get into tricky spots (marabou everywhere or a tangle).
