KastKing Cutthroat 7″ Fishing Pliers Product Review

KastKing claims that their stainless steel Cutthroat Pliers are 45% harder than aluminum pliers and are nearly 3X more bendable.

The corrosion-resistant stainless steel has a Teflon coating for added protection, and they’re suitable for both freshwater and saltwater environments.

Braid, mono, and fluorocarbon are sliced with ease by the super-hard Tungsten Carbide Cutters. The side-mounted anvil cutters allow you to cut your tag end as close to the knot as you desire.

Additionally, the raised surface behind the blade ensures your line will always be in the cutting zone.

The multi-function jaws provide a versatile straight and split ring nose design to grab and remove any fish hook. The serrated jaws and crimping slots help to secure a split shot weight or build a steel leader.

The ergonomic textured rubber handle provides comfort and control. The thin grip profile and spring-loaded jaws allow for one-hand use.

KastKing Cutthroat Pliers include a custom-molded sheath with belt clip to ensure wear and tear prevention. Also included is a coiled lanyard to ensure your pliers don’t get lost to the water.
