The EDC Tool Roll: Knipex Snipe Nose Side Cutting Pliers (25 01 125)

The EDC Tool Roll is a feature on Jerking the Trigger in which we profile various everyday carry worthy tools. The tools shown aren’t multi-tools but rather real tools, that by virtue of their compact size, light weight, usefulness, or unique functionality, can find a place in any range kit, emergency kit, or everyday carry bag.

Feel free to comment on the tools that you carry so we can all learn! The discussion on these posts has been very valuable so far.

I am willing to give just about of the small pliers from Knipex a chance based on my excellent experiences with everything the company makes. A fan of The EDC Tool Roll told me I should check out another compact plier powerhouse from Knipex – the Snipe Nose Side Cutting Pliers (25 01 125). Once again, they did not disappoint.

Knipex’s Snipe Nose pliers are sort of like short needle-nose pliers. They offer a fine working tip with the typically shallow grooves for grip found on needle-nose pliers. They lack the reach of a large set of needle-nose pliers but they are so compact that they can still get into very tight places. I find myself reaching for them often for things like starting roll pins, twisting wire, and more.

I will also mention that the side cutters on these are excellent and this is something that was missing in my compact tool roll. I use a lot of wire for temporary repairs, hanging wasp traps, fixing garden fences, and similar tasks. These pliers are perfect for these tasks.

The rounded, rubber-dipped handles are comfortable to use and allow a lot of force to be applied which is handy when using the cutters. These are small pliers but they offer quite a bit of handle to hold onto.

As useful as these Snipe Nose Side Cutting Pliers are, I recognize that not every kit will have room for them. They are as short as other Knipex EDC classics like the Cobra Pliers but they are wider thanks to the handle design. This can make them a bit of a stretch for some compact tool rolls. If I only had room for one set of pliers, it would be one of the Cobra Plier variants. If I had room for two, these are too handy to overlook.

Where to Buy:

I don’t have a source for Knipex Tools locally (and probably never will) so I buy all of mine online, usually from Amazon: Knipex 25 01 125 on Amazon

LowPro Augmento Ghillie Snake

What if you could quickly and easily apply a 3D camouflage to almost anything using something that weighs just one ounce and fit easily in a pocket? That sounds like an interesting ability, does it not? Well, I just described the Ghillie Snake from LowPro.

The Ghillie Snake. A multi-use, quick application, seven foot length of camo netting on shock cord that can be wrapped around just about anything. Virtually weightless, this essential piece of kit can be stowed away and forgotten about until that extra element of stealth is required.

KE Arms KP-15 Easy Sling Adapter

KE Arms is now offering the Easy Sling Adapter for the KP-15 lower receiver. The Easy Sling Adapter makes use of the rear sling mounting slot on the KP-15.

If you have used this slot before, you know that it can be a bit of a hassle to get the sling tight enough. The adapter is designed so that it is self-tightening as the sling is pulled. It is also much easier to swap slings from the adapter than the fixed slot.
