Buck Knives Splizzors E-mail

BuckKnives KFM staff ran into this the Splizzors from Buck Knives at OR this past week. It's a pretty neat concept for a multitool. Pliers, scissors, crimpers and even a bottle opener are all integrated as well as a lanyard attach point. The first thing we noticed was the confortable handle made of Dynaflex® rubber. The second thing we noticed was a "postive tension" when closing the tool. This tension is indicative of the "edge pressure" being exerted by these knives. Indeed, in multiple tests, this tool cut through braid with ease, even without pulling the line tight.

Our only wish ... that a smaller version is introduced in addition to this full sized version.

From a recent press release from Buck Knives.

"The Splizzors innovative design efficiently combines the use of scissors and pliers to create a versatile tool even for the most rugged of fishing tasks. Utilizing the concepts of BASS Elite anglers Bill Lowen and Brandon Palaniuk, along with Mark Davis of Big Water Adventures TV show, the Buck product development team designed a tool that through extensive field testing by a variety of experienced anglers has been developed into the ultimate fishing product. The Splizzors use edge to edge pressure 10X that of normal scissors. The replaceable blades contain micro serrations to cut braided and high performance fishing line with ease. The stainless steel blades and frame are constructed of 420HC steel, with an overall length of 8 ½" and a total weight of 8.3 ounces."
