Abel Nippers

These are not your mama's toe nail clippers, but they are a machined clipper specifically made for fishing. 

Abel set the bar for high end nippers when they debuted back in 2007.  It has been the only nipper available with dual cutting surfaces versus a cutter-and-anvil design, making it the premier cutting tool on the market for everything from 8x tippet to braid. 

The new nipper takes that same principle, but puts it together with new ergonomics, type III anodized bodies, as well as a brand new magnetic "spring". Two sets of rare earth magnets keep the jaws open without a hinge that can be subject to corrosion issues while also acting as a reliable "fly dock" to attach your flies to while rigging.  Available with 3 body color options, and our full range of solid gloss colors on the central scale, there are over 54 different combinations to choose from.

Features:

  • Made in the USA
  • Type III anodized 7075 aluminum body construction 
  • Type II anodized 6061-T6 aluminum scale
  • Replaceable, heat treated and precision ground 440C hardened steel jaw material
  • Nipper jaws designed to be user-sharpened in the field
  • 2 nickel-plated neodymium rare earth magnets hidden on each side of the nipper body
  • 4 total opposing magnets keep the nippers open while also serving as a reliable fly dock
  • Stainless steel hook eye cleaner integrated into machined lanyard holder
  • Removable, adjustable lanyard manufactured from Airflo fly line included

Review by Munehisa on 2/7/2020

My wife and daughter handed it to me as my birthday present. I went to river with this little gem and always surprise the precision of this product. You can cut any fishing line without any stress. I will use it for many years to come not only because from my family but because of their guarantee policy. Of course, it is pricy but you will receive satisfaction. I think every fly fishermen knew this is the most.

Great Accessory makes a Great gift

Review by Boris K. on 7/15/2013

These extremely well made nippers make a luxurious gift for the fly fisher. Hanging around the neck of someone who means a lot to you, they will be beautiful and useful for a long time. You are with them on the river as they enjoy their fishing. Expensive? Not really. The many cheap nippers which have worn out quickly are not that much cheaper in the long run. For the price of a few packs of leaders, a best friend can enjoy something he/she probably wouldn't buy for themselves. I know my wife won't part with hers, and has thanked me many times for presenting her with these. Is that worth the price of a tank of gas? You bet it is!

Great USA made product

Review by Ron H on 3/31/2012

I don't understand some of these small minded people who poo poo this great product. I love their reels and bet I spend less money owning a great Abel reel than these other guys who have to keep replacing their $50 reel. $50 for a great nipper with a 2 year warranty is a great buy. I can't begin to tell you how much money I have spent over the last 50 years on nipper trying to find a pair that would cut and keep cutting for more than a season. Great job Abel on another great quality product. Some people will just never learn that quality is cheaper in the long run. My dad always told me to buy the best I could afford and then I would only have to buy it once.

Way overpriced just like their reels!! Nippers $100.00 because they're painted like a trout????? Bet they would sell a lot more priced around $40....remember they clip fishing line....you're paying $25 for the nippers and $75 for the word "ABEL"!!!!!!!!!
