Default Re: Recycling hooks

Burning isn't a great idea because, other than the temper of the steel, the synthetic materials do not always burn cleanly, and often you are left with a black, burnt residue on the hook.

You can buy a pack of thin razor blades that come in two yellow compartments for a little over a buck at walmart. One doesn't stay sharp for too many flies but you get 20 in a box so its worth it.

Or as DiverDan suggested (probably better than a cheap razor) an exacto knife would do it. Handle is a plus.

Ditto what Dan said- Exacto knife. When you hit a wire rib, unwind it with tweezers and finsh withe the knife.
