The Story

The Orvis Nipper is not your ordinary fly-fishing nipper. Patented design is made in the USA of machined 6061-T6 aluminum; these nippers incorporate a piano-style hinge that adds mechanical advantage for easily cutting anything from 80-lb. to 8X tippet. Replaceable cutter and anvil offer excellent corrosion resistance and edge retention. Ergonomic contour for comfort and enhanced function. Type III military-spec anodized. Stainless steel rotating hook-eye cleaner. Comes with lanyard made from fly line.

Made in USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design Jaws are very sharp and handle all weights of line from the lightest tippet up to the heavier line used for leaders. A little bigger than my previous nippers, but sure makes them easy to find.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dull after one season After 20+ trips on the river last year, the cutter was leaving a mushroom shaped edge on my 6x tippet. It was so bad, I couldn't thread a #22 midge with 6x tippet. So, for $6 more I moved into the top of the line leader... disappointed.
