Its on the back of the line cutters I got. The only thing I could think of is a thing to help with knots but im not sure.

Cleaning the eye of a hook if it has an obstruction.

What Ard said! :thumbsup:

I have one that's supposed to be used for jigs. It has a pin like that too for clearing paint out of the hook eye. Problem is it doesn't fit all sizes of hooks.

I end up using the point of another hook most of the time! :rolleyes:

And here I thought it was to poke myself into awareness if I'm not paying close enough attention. Always learning something new... :D
