The Australian adventure angler can find themselves fighting the current in a river, bobbing around in a kayak, or clinging over the side of a boat. Tasks are rarely done on solid ground or with two free hands. The inspiration was simple: give the angler a free hand when cutting and securing line on-the-go.

The FreeHander lives up to its name, offering one-hand engagement when cutting and securing line. The wide paddle design gives intuitive purchase in cold or wet conditions, and movable parts provide a custom fit. Optimized for use with Mono & Fluorocarbon line.

  • Pivoting retention clip for maximum control, the pivoting clip holds line for steady one-hand operation when cutting and securing line.
  • Exchangeable + multi-positional respike

  • Gerber took the familiar design of the line nipper and honed in on the problem areas that anglers face.
  • The FreeHander is not only a nipper, but a tool that can manage line or lure exchange in real time.
  • The design centers around a pivoting retention clip that cinches line during lure exchange. No more flailing line or dropped lures , just an easy to operate line vice that acts as an additional hand.
  • A tether point is built into the pivoting line cutter that allows the angler to swivel the tool in any direction to get into tight spots with minimal strain.
  • The FreeHander features a wide paddle design for maximum contact between the angler and the tool. The result is thoughtful surfacing that plays to the need for control when working with small lures, thin line, and unpredictable conditions.
  • Gerber tools are built to last a lifetime. To ensure optimal performance, rinse your tool with fresh water and dry thoroughly with a clean towel. Apply oil to hinges and moving parts on a regular basis.
