Sharpening Boomerang Snips

Recommended Posts

So I've had my snips for a while now and they certainly don't cut braid like they used to.  Anyone found anyway to sharpen them?  The opening is so small.

They aren't that expensive so I can always buy another pair but if I don't have to that would obviously be better.  

Thanks.

you might be able to send them back and get another pair, i think they are a lifetime warranty deal but i could be wrong.  I love my boomerang snips but i also noticed they got dull after about a year of use.

Mine got dull, too. Fly may have the right
idea of sending them back. 

Just did a quick scan of their site, unless
I completely missed it, there was no info
on warranty. Probably have to contact them
via phone or email to find out if they can 
sharpen or replace them.

The Boomerang Snip model I have has 5 very small Phillip's head screws on one side.  Once removed the back of the tool opens up & can be removed.  This access will allow for the removal of the "Snip" assembly.  This makes sharpening it more effective. There's a small spring clip to remove as well.  Note that (at least my model) there is one serrated blade that will not ever need sharpening & one straight edge blade that does.  Unless that edge has been totally abused, a few solid strokes with the small honing tool of your choice should put a fine cutting edged right back on it. Then it's only a matter of reassembly.

The Boomerang Snip is the single most useful fishing accessory I've ever used.  I buy a new one every season and throw the old one out.  Still the best investment I make every year.

going to have to try this. i've deemed my pair useless for now because they're dull to the point that braid has to be pretty tight in order to get them to cut.
