Nice forceps, super solid and strong; no flex in these babies. Not too sure on the finish though? Was rubbing off on my fingers at first but after a good scrub in the river seem to take care of that. If I had to do over though I probably would just go w/ the stainless finish. But all in all great product that most likely won't have to be replace like my others and the forcep/ scissor option is the only way to go in my opinion.
