These are sold mainly to fisherman for line cutting.  It cut braid fishing line so nicely I thought it might be useful for string making.  It cuts easily through HMPE serving. 

It got me wondering what others are using when making strings.

It doesn't seem to have a name but can be purchased from the maker, The Boomerang Tool Company.  https://www.boomerangtool.com 

It has a retractable lanyard to keep it at hand.  

I went fishing with a son in law in September and he had one which I so admired that he sent me one for Christmas.

Beats a pair of nail clippers.  Plus, if a fishing partner wants to use them they are never more than 36" away.[smile]

I use small stainless steel scissors to cut braid and FF string.  When fishing I wear a pair on a lanyard around my neck.  At home I have a second pair on my desk.  They work fine.  Frank

I use a box cutter or very sharp scissors for my string making.
