Born of the desire to create a compact processing tool that offered more, Gerber gave the basic fish scaler a major overhaul. While most tools out there only focus on one area of processing a fish, the Gutsy provides four essential functions in one compact package. Easy to toss in your backpack or back pocket, the Gutsy is always ready when opportunity strikes. The scaler is ground into the metal for sharp teeth that effectively remove scales from the fish, no time wasted. The gut hook is also ground into the tool, an ultra-sharp edge that easily slides into the vent of the fish and opens the cavity. Built into the body of the tool is the scooper, an easy-to-use point that allows you to remove any remaining veins without the possible damage of a blade. And last but not least, a bottle opener is included for the celebratory beverage at the end of a long day. Not every fishing trip is planned, sometimes opportunity strikes when you least expect it. The Gutsy is slim enough to keep on hand for those “just in case” moments, and dependable enough to act as an all-in-one processing tool on the fly.
