Successful Saltwater Anglers Depend on Smith’s Lawaia Series

Every fishing trip is an adventure. Whether chasing bull reds in the marsh, massive yellowfin tuna near the rigs, or daytime swordfish in the deep abyss, saltwater anglers regularly test their mettle – and their equipment – against some of the most powerful fish on the planet. Only the toughest, most reliable tools survive in the corrosive marine environment. Smith’s Consumer Products – the Edge Experts since 1886 – is pleased to provide anglers with versatile, lightweight knives and tools that are the perfect companions on every saltwater adventure.

Smith’s Lawaia Locking Aluminum Fishing Pliers are engineered to deliver years of corrosion-free service in the harsh saltwater environment. Their ergonomic, lightweight, and spring-loaded design makes them perfect for those situations when your hands are tired from battling bluewater trophies. A rugged, reliable tool for unhooking finned adversaries, the Lawaia Locking Aluminum Fishing Pliers are packed with features to address many of saltwater angling’s most common tasks, including:

  • A split shot crimper to protect your teeth when adding weight to your leader.
  • A carbide side cutter that masterfully handles braided line.
  • A spring-loaded design to make the pliers easy to open with one hand.
  • A convenient locking mechanism to keep the jaws locked tight.
  • A built-in carabiner that attaches to your belt or loop, keeping the tool handy at all times.
  • A lightweight, corrosion-resistant anodized aluminum design.

Making bait is one of the most critical tasks in saltwater fishing. Whether dicing menhaden for a chumline or preparing the perfect hookbaits for tuna, every angler recognizes the value and importance of preparing bait – the right way. For a knife to earn a home at the bait station, it must be sharp, durable, easy to use, and most importantly: reliable. Those are the qualities you’ll find in the Lawaia Serrated Ceramic Baitbreaker Knife from Smith’s Consumer Products.

Smith’s Lawaia Serrated Ceramic Baitbreaker Knife is the tool you’ll reach for every time that you make bait. The knife includes an ultra-sharp serrated ceramic blade that maintains its edge and is impervious to the corrosive effects of the harsh marine environment. A thoughtfully-designed non-slip handle makes the Lawaia Serrated Ceramic Baitbreaker Knife comfortable and easy to use. Designed and manufactured for both the bait station and the kitchen, Smith’s Lawaia Serrated Ceramic Baitbreaker Knife is packed with useful features that savvy saltwater anglers demand, including:

  • A 5.3-inch serrated ceramic blade.
  • Complete resistance to corrosion and rust.
  • A non-slip, textured TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) handle.
  • A breathable protective sheath.
  • A tether-ready lanyard hole in the handle for convenience.

Smith’s Lawaia Serrated Ceramic Baitbreaker Knife (MSRP $12.99) and Lawaia Locking Aluminum Fishing Pliers (MSRP $28.99) are protected by three-year limited warranties to support many seasons of saltwater adventures.
