Default Accurate 8" pliers... Replacement cutters.

Gents...
Any tips on a source for a pair of replacement cutters for the older model of these pliers ? Everywhere I've found online, including Accurate, only seem to have the new style cutters to suit their current model pliers.
Cheers !

I tried searching many ways and only came up with the new style.

If you find any please post a link or share where you bought them. I have searched all over and have not been able to find them.

They may be the same cutters as the 7 1/2 inch Danco's or Tsunami's which are almost identical but happen to be less than half the price. Might want to try the replacement cutters for those brands.

Yes I have called and asked. And was told they no longer have the older parts.

i had the same problem and i recently called about how to get replacement jaws. they told me they now buy back your current pliers and give you a $50 credit to the new style pliers. after they told me this they were going to send me he form via email and i never received it. I have had nothing but problems with the accurate pliers and their customer service and will not be sending them back and paying an additional $50 to upgrade to the new style

I upgraded to new style and am less than thrilled, I bought a used pair thinking I was getting a high end pair that would work well and last, can't stand them.

I went to the Van Staal titanium. I just wish they had more of a needle nose for the pliers

Your SOL as I have tried everywhere. The bad part is I have 4 of them and 2 were gifts from Yamaha and engraved.

I now have a new style pair and don't care for them as much as the old ones.

Good Luck. Ive had experience with accurate's service department and they were garbage. Van Staal, Don Mar or abel would be your best best going forward

I agree the Accurate Pliers REALLY suck. The jaws do not close completely so it is impossible to cinch down the braid and a butter knife cuts better than these. Spent a lot of money for a piece of aluminum that does not do the job. Going to sell mine so if anyone is intersted let me know. In the meantime, I found this recent article on the best high performance fishing pliers for under $50

I've had very good results with the t-reign pliers. Found on eBay with sheath for around $55 shipped. Cut braid and mono with ease and have a needle nose point. Owned this pair for over two years with no issues.

I'll never buy another accurate product, ever, and I will tell everyone I come across why.

Accurate, I hope someone in your company reads these forums. You need to support your very expensive products better !

you guys are bringing me down on a beautiful Saturday morning. I figured I'd order some new jaws and cutters for my APL-8 pliers but looks like I'm SOL.

So what do I replace them with. I need high quality pliers.

Same experience here! My accurates are in the garage and I bought a used pair of Van Staahls put new cutters on them and they work great.

The accurates never cut braid and the jaws never closed tight enough to cinch up a knot.
