We precision-machine two sizes of these remarkable lightweight aluminum pliers with tool steel cutting blades.
Abel Model #4 Pliers at 6.5 inches and just 4.1 ounces are for fresh and saltwater fly-fishing. They’ll remove a hook, cut 250-pound braided wire or any size monofilament line made. These pliers are a necessity when rigging saltwater leaders and are designed for this task. With built-in bottle opener!
Secure your pliers to your belt or wading shorts with an optional hand-tooled Latigo leather carrying sheath; and be sure to see our pliers/knife combo. Abel Pliers come with a curled safety lanyard that may be secured to your belt or its own Latigo leather sheath. The curled lanyard will stretch approximately three feet. Unless you’re fishing almost every day, it is unlikely our tool steel jaws will ever wear out. If it becomes necessary, we will replace them and correctly align the pliers’ jaws at the factory for $20 plus shipping.
