Abstract: A fisherman's tool for cutting line and cleaning hooks that includes a pair of adjacent elongated spring members having ends curved generally in the same direction, with a cutting edge on one and line receiving recesses adjacent the end of the other so that when squeezed together the cutting edge wipes across the recesses severing line positioned therein. A hook eye cleaning point is formed integrally on the end of one of the spring members and it is rotated in the hook eye to clean paint, leader or line from the eye.
Abstract: A tool, such as tweezers or scissors, having articulated opposing jaws is disclosed. The tool comprises a handle having first and second opposing arms projecting from a section by which the arms are joined, the arms being normally spaced throughout their length and being resiliently flexible toward each other. Each arm includes an elongate cavity extending longitudinally thereof and having an opening at the end of the arm. Jaw inserts are provided, and each has a working end for manipulating or cutting an object and an elongate shank that is received by one of the cavities to secure the jaw insert to its respective arm. The tool further includes a mechanism for guiding each working end in a single plane of movement with respect to the opposing arm upon flexing of the arms toward each other to substantially avoid undesirable lateral flexing of the opposing working ends with respect to each other.
