The Gerber 30-000070 Flik Multitool is specifically designed with the fisherman in mind. If you are looking for the perfect multitool to throw in your tackle box, then the Gerber Flik is what you have been looking for. The pliers are elongated and extra fine, making them perfect for removing hooks from the mouths of fishes. The pliers deploy quickly with the flick of the wrist which is what you want when you’re in the middle of pulling in the big one. This multitool has 2 knife blades, a serrated blade for cutting paracord etc, and a straight edge blade. All of the tools except the pliers are on the outside of the tool so that you can easily open them for quick use. The other tools on this multitool are all geared for the fisherman as well. It comes with scissors that can cut 150 lb. fishing line. A built-in hook sharpener for the hard-core fisherman who likes to sharpen his own hooks, a bottle opener so you aren’t forced to drink canned beer on the next fishing trip, a file and some flat head and Phillips head screwdrivers. This is a decent sized multitool that isn’t light, but chances are you won’t use this multitool as an everyday carry. You will want to keep this in your tackle box so that you will never be without it when you have a fish on the line.
This multitool comes with a nylon sheath but chances are you won’t really use it often. It has stainless steel construction and is built well. This is a great collection of tools specifically for the fisherman. This is the best multitool I have seen to keep in a tackle box. This multitool is rather heavy at 9.3 ounces and is 5 inches in length when closed, but this should be of little importance to you based on the purpose that this multitool was created for, which is to sit in your tackle box to make life easier for you when you go fishing. If you are looking to replace, the knife and pliers and other crap load of tools in your tackle box, then there is no better multitool for that specific job.
