The hook is made from the strongest quality stainless steel available and is hand-sharpened with a knife edge point. Unlike round points cut on a lathe, the tip of the point will not lay over if a bone is struck while gaffing a fish. Handles are made from high polished aluminum. Features functional and desirable grips, the same used on professional exercise machines. Gaffs up to 3' have one grip. All gaffs 4' and above have two hand grips.
