I wish it was made in an Alox.  It would be easier to keep clean.

It would be a Pity to see a rare (in Australia anyway) SAK like that get trashed while fishing, all bloody and smelly. But it would indeed be useful! :D

I brought my wave tonight for a quick hour if bank fishing

WORST decision now that I'm used to the OHT.

Holding a fish and opening pliers sucks.

Not to mention my wave is my "beater" tool. The wire cutters grab, you can't really deploy any inner tools without another pry tool, and my main blade gets harder to deploy as it opens. I'm assuming the post is tightening?

You can file off the damaged bit of the wire cutters with I diamond file to stop it from grabbing, have you tried loosening the fasteners a little to get the inner tools and blade to open easier? Or even a bit of 3 in 1 oil..

I haven't but I plan to. I don't blame the tool for its failures, it's definetly the lack of my care for this one tool.

I plan on acid washing it. So I'll have it apart as soon as I can sell my Charge.

So. I took my wave today after filing the wire cutter, and loosening/adjusting the tools.

Worked great.

But note to self; when wade fishing in salt water DO NOT submersible the tool. Within submersion and driving back to town there is a noticeable difference in rust.

Yea, I hate rust and in certain conditions it can form before you get home. Good thing is when it forms that quickly it is easily removed if you act quickly. This is why I love to buy a beater tool every once in a while. I do not feel bad using it hard or getting it rusty or beat up because it came to me in that condition. That's just me though. Others might not have a problem with using a new tool like that. It is its intended purpose after all. I'm just weird.

That's what my wave is for :D

If I drop it on concrete? Oh well. If I snap the blade? Oh well. Honestly if it falls off a bridge. Oh well. It's my beater tool which is why I've been carrying it so much!

If the scissors were on the outside it'd be peerrffeecctttttttttt.

Nice work NK! My Sidekick gets a bit rusty every time I'm out on the water, doesn't bother me as it's a second hand beater!

I've switched from the Wingman to the Switchplier. Holding a fish in one hand I can easily open the pliers. It needs scissors though.

Swisstool x or spirit x. Spirit has longer needle nose pliers but the Swisstool pliers have never let me down.
I recommend the x version because they have scissors.

The Swisstool's are also very rust proof so they also do well around salt water.

For only fishing a new Swisstool is too expensive. I suggest picking up a second hand example.

All the Swisstool's also have a hole where you can fit a corck screw, you can also put a lanyard through it. Highly recommend when fishing on a boat.

I think the main reason I want an OHT is just so I can hold a fish in one hand; and open anything with the other.

SOG Blacktip or you're just a quitter!!! :pok: :pok:

The scaler is actually a good one.

I really missed OHO today while fishing.

Either I need to use my switchplier or I need another LM OHT. Haven't decided.

The SP2 did not work out.

Too much time to open the tool and get scissors or a Knife.

The scissors are absolutely terrible at cutting braid too.

SOG makes/made on called the BlackTip. You can still pick them up on Westmarine's website. Seems to be fairly resistant to rust and it has a line cutter. Just don't fall in the water wearing one. This thing is a beast! I'll throw in my Skeletool CX for size comparison.

Cheers,

I use a PST II as well (when I get a chance to go fishing) :tu: Except I have swapped the combo blade ( which I am not fond of and don't understand why LM keeps putting them on everything ??? ) for a PE blade :cheers: I have also been known to carry this as my weekend carry MT as well :tu:

I also recommend the Blacktip



Convenient OHO blade. Easy to sharpen, excellent for slicing and degutting fish.



Excellent one handed butterfly opening (Knuckles beware!)



Incredible gripping force with the compound leverage



Precise, fine and pointy needlenose for detailed work



Just the perfect tool for the job, IMO. Wire cutter is excellent as well


My toys:

MTs: Surge (2x), Skeletool CX, Rebar, Blast, Fuse, Micra, Squirt (3x), Wave, Crunch, Mini, Spirit (2x), Pro Scout, MP700 (2x), Diesel, Powerlock, PowerPlier (2x), PocketPowerPlier, Blacktip , ST6 (2x), 5WR, A100

SAKs: Bantam, Executive, Ambassador, Minichamp, Classic Alox, Champion, Farmer, Explorer, Swisschamp, Golf Tool, Wenger Champ, EVO 52, Pocket Tool Chest

Hi

My 2c.......

I've done a lot of saltwater fishing, for us this is a vehicle-based activity 99% of the time, looking for and moving from spot to spot.

Freshwater fishing consists of:
1. Pontoon or Kayak based artificial lure fishing, 99% fly the last decade.
2. Fly fishing in free stone rapids.
3. Occasional bait fishing for carp.

In all cases I prefer one or two dedicated tools rather than a MT.
