When it comes to tools, it’s often the extra details that get your attention. I recently became enamored with two innovative products from Kastking.com. Both devices are saltwater resistant and come with a one-year “incredible peace of mind” warranty. Their 5-inch bait knife (retail $16.98) has a bright orange, rubber handle that provides a balanced feel when you grip it. Slip off the hard plastic, locking sheath (the safety clasp disengages with the push of your thumb) and the word “deadly” comes to mind. The blade – a razor sharp, German stainless-steel blade with serrated top edge – provides all the functionality required for cutting bait or preparing fish for the table. Unlike your rusty needlenose pliers, Kastking’s “cutthroat” 7-inch stainless steel pliers (retail $21.98) are coated with corrosion resistant Teflon. Tungsten carbide cutters and a spring-loaded hard plastic grip make them user-friendly. These functional pliers also come with a molded sheath and lanyard to ensure they won’t get lost among other gear in the heat of the battle.
