Wonder cutter

Guys,
If youíre looking for a decent set of cutters thatíll get though absolutely any braid, leader etc, I have found the answer.

After many many frustrating years using sub-optimal cutters, I bit the bullet.

You wonít find a better line cutter/nipper than the Abel.

If you have the opportunity to pick up a set, close your eyes and hand over the $, I guarantee youíll be impressed. Hereís a pic of mine with a DIY lanyard I knocked up. Abel lanyard en route

Cheers

Nagz

The price was definitely a hard pill to swallow, hence black and not hand painted

Havenít run into anything I canít cut yet

As soon as I got hold of it, I went straight to the shed to cut up all different outfits, nil issues as yet
