The unique patented design of the "tri-shear" cutting mechanism prevents braided lines, mono and stranded cable from fraying. This keeps the line and cable intact and allows an easy and sure fit into a cable crimp. It does not leave any strands sticking out which minimizes the risk of injury to your hands. The patented design allows quick release of a fish by sliding the cutting barrel down the line to the cutting tip without handling the line.
The "tri-shear" body is made of an aircraft quality 6061 billet (block) aluminum. Internal hardware is made of durable corrosion resistant 303 stainless steel for fresh or salt water use.
