The only hook using Surgically Sharpened Technology (SST) creating a precision ground, triple sided point that penetrates twice as easily over other point shapes. Made from Ultra Clean, Cold-Forged, High Carbon Steel for higher tensile strength. The Low Profile Barb was designed for easier penetration, yet ultimate holding power. The angle of the barb was determined through precise geometric calculations. The Flippin' Hook also has a Trokar barb on the shank.
