Hatch Tempest pliers are the most beautiful pliers that you’ll probably never buy, unless of course you’re an angler with a healthy budget. Tempest pliers are designed for fishing applications, so they’re lightweight, corrosion resistant, and durable.
Tempest pliers are made from 6061-T6 aluminum that is Type II anodized for optimal protection. The jaws and dual cutting blades are made from stainless steel that is nickel-plated for added corrosion resistance.
The jaws and cutting blades are factory-replaceable, ensuring that your investment will last for years.
In case it’s not quite obvious, the cutting blades are on both sides of the handles, right near the pivot. They can cut fishing line as well as small hooks and wires, and work with a shearing action as you squeeze the handles together.
There are two types of finishes – clear anodized with red accents, or grey nickel anodized with white accents. Each comes with a ballistic nylon sheath with belt loop.
