These are well-made and pretty heavy duty forceps. Some forceps tend to bend when you use them to mash the barb on a hook. Not these! The hinge is precisely made and works well. The locking mechanism works easily with one hand. These do have very long nose jaws, unlike the photo. The photo shows the jaws only being about 3/4 inch long, whereas the forceps I received have jaws about 1.25 inches long. The tip half of the jaws are flat and the part closest to the hinge is serrated.
