Abel is – and has always been – at the forefront of innovation and design in the flyfishing industry.  Our new hemostats are another perfect example of our ingenuity.  Unlike the standard hemostats that automatically lock the instant you close them, the new Abel Hybrid Hemostats feature a unique locking mechanism that only engages when you want it to.  It utilizes a precision thumb lock on the top of the handle.  Old fashioned “classic” hemostats can then be anything but simple to unlock – especially with cold, wet fingers while holding a slippery fish. But with the Hybrid Hemostat, it’s as easy as pulling a trigger to release the locking mechanism.  A quick squeeze of the ergonomically designed handles or sliding back the sleek thumb lock is all that’s needed to unlock the jaws. The stainless steel jaws are not only designed for easy hook removal, but also pinching down even the tiniest of hook barbs – perfect for those who enjoy safely releasing a fish as much as catching it. These jaws are not only replaceable, but guaranteed for life. Visit your local Abel dealer and try a pair – it is the hemostat redefined.

Abel Blade Knife
Abel Knives
In our quest to always improve, Abel has re-designed the blade by increasing the thickness from .095 to .120 of an inch.  In addition to the improved thickness,  we've also increased the cutting edge by 20%. The blade is available with a flat grind and non-serrated only.

Our files are filled with stories from anglers (both fly and conventional) who used a knife to get out of trouble: from the guy who stabbed a rogue bear in Canada to the fellow who tripped in a steelhead river and used his blade to cut himself free from loose flyline that had wrapped his feet.

The AbelBlade knife is constructed of the finest components and materials including Made in the USA high carbon, high chrome, 154CM knife grade stainless steel. It has been hardened to 60RC; the handle or frame of the knife is cold finished 6061-T6 aircraft quality aluminum.

While the blades of some knives can collapse, the “liner-lock,” (the blade-locking mechanism) – of fine heat treated spring steel – can’t close until you deliberately move it to the side with your thumb, thus allowing the blade to fold back. It is engineered for quick, single-handed use... vital when you need to hang onto a rod while cutting a snagged anchor rope, cut away brush while float-tubing or cut through a streamside tangle. It’s a must while camping, or on a float trip.

The heavy-duty (removable) spring steel pocket clip has been designed to fit on the outside of your shirt, pants, wading shorts or wader pocket with the knife securely inside. This is essentially a custom knife that is available only with a non-serrated blade. These knives are produced in limited numbers in our shop. *Fish Graphic options may take up to 4-6 weeks to ship.  Fish Graphic is painted on front side of knife only.
