This a go to tool. -

When tying small flies, I make sure to have the micro forceps on by tying desk. WISH I had this tool years ago.

I use it on my lanyard and the sling pack as well. It does what it should do - snipping monofilament and debarbing hooks. It is very well made and does not corrode at all.
Typical Orvis -

Like all Orvis products these forceps are very good quality, a little tight at first I think this is necessary due to the scissor portion but they work very well for what they are designed for and I believe they will last a long time. Nice feel to them
Great tool for skinny fingers -
These are great little forceps for going light and fast on the water; they are compact and eliminate the need to carry separate forces and nips. I only have one complaint and that is the size of the finger rings, they leave quite a bit to be desired for someone with even moderately thick fingers. They are simple enough to engage, but getting your fingers back out of them when you are done and have clamped them back into their storage place can be infuriating if you don't have all day to fiddle with your gear and want to get back to fishing and don't' have a free hand to hold the forceps in place while you carefully back your fingers out of the holes. An otherwise excellent product that just needs a simple tweak in ergonomics.
Excellent Micro Forceps -

I needed a small pair of forceps to complete a light weight kit for fly and spin fishing. These fit the bill and have proven to be well-designed and reliable throughout a year of use on Virginia’s small streams and traveling to large New England lakes. The design incorporates a forceps and scissors for maximum utility. They work well removing and de-barbing hooks, and cutting most all fly and spin fishing lines, leaders and tippets. Recommended for those needing a small, high quality, versatile fishing tool.

Quality Item -

Had another set of Micro Forceps but loss them in the Driftless area so I had to get another pair. Use them all the time.
Great for what they are! -
I owned the Micro-Scissors forceps previously and ended up losing them out of my chest pack. Thought I'd be fine with my nippers and a pair of Power-Jaw forceps. But I ended up really missing the tiny Micro-Scissors. So I purchased a replacement. They are very small, and seem to require a little more force to open and close than a "standard size" forceps. A little "twist" in your grip aides in both the opening and closing, and they do operate smotthly with no binding. This extra effort doesn't bother me in the least, and once you get the hang of them, they are just as handy as any others. Their tiny size makes them perfect for a minimalist outing, or where size and weight are important considerations. (Backpacking for example) They eliminate the need to carry nippers as well, but since they don't have an eye cleaning tool incorporated into them, you'll need to use a fly to clear any hook eye. The clamp portion provides plenty of grip, and the scissors portion with its serrated edge works great on everything from tippet to trimming flies. A small fly box, the Micro/Scissor Forceps, Gink, and a couple of spools of tippet are all I carry (or need) when fishing for a day. I love these little guys and you probably will to if you understand what it is your getting. They are tiny. If you have big hands and/or fat fingers you'll likely be disappointed. The same holds true if you lack sufficient finger strength to operate them efficiently. Highly recommended for those of you looking for the ultimate in tiny forceps.
