What are Comfy Grip Nippers?

Orvis Comfy Grip Nippers are line cutters with a soft rubberised handle to give you extra purchase when cutting your leader and tippet. The grippy area extends the whole length of the moving part of the nippers, to prevent the nippers slipping when your hands are cold or wet.

The grippy part is soft and, well, grippy.

What features do they have?

Comfy Grip Nippers are machined from high quality surgical stainless steel and have a sharp cutting edge designed to be durable. There's a large eyelet to let you attach them to your pack, lanyard or vest and there's a recessed needle in the top to let you remove varnish from the eyes of new flies.

The blade is razor sharp.

What are they like to use?

These are good quality nippers. They're neatly made and well finished, bearing some similarity to the quality of the excellent Stonfo Nippers I usually use. The cutting blades are nice and sharp and give a clean cut through lines of all thicknesses, including thicker butt section.

The recessed needle lets you remove varnish from hook eyes.

How much do they cost?

Orvis Comfy Grip Nippers sell for around £9.95. That's mid-priced as far as nippers go. You can get cheaper pairs for a fiver or less, but they are rarely as well made and often wear out quickly. These ones look worth the asking price. Get them here.
