Abel once again raised the level of what a fishing tool could by taking one of the most basic accessories, and re-envisioning it with high-quality parts, and perfecting its performance. Instead of the typical cutter-and-anvil design, the Abel Nipper features two jaws with knife-grade steel cutting blades that cleanly snip 8X tippet, heavy leader material, and even braided backing. Overbuilt? Yes. Overkill? Definitely not. The Abel Nipper has quickly become one of the most essential items to include in a fly fisher’s, and fly tyer’s kit.
