I've been looking for a high quality bolt cutter that is small and will fit in any jig bag, popper bag or tackle box. I finally found a great pair of excellent quality small bolt cutters to cut hooks if needed. We all spend a bunch on tackle and a nice pair of bolt cutters should be packed on every trip just in case of hook removal. The cutter is made in Germany by Knipex. Most lineman use these over Kline and other high quality cutters. You can also use these for cutting Stainless steel piano wire, multistrand stainless cable or anything made of steel that you use while fishing. The model is 71 02 200. They retail for $75 but I got mine on Amazon for about $43. Small price for a tool if you have a big strong 4X hook imbedded in your body. Cuts material like bolts, nails, rivets, etc. up to 6 mm dia. About 1/4". Exceptional cutting performance with minimum effort because of new lever action design. Cutting edges additionally induction hardened, cutting edge hardness approx. 64 HRC. The are Forged Chrome Vanadium electric steel, oil-hardened and tempered.
