Tamsco offers its Premium Coral Fragging Tool Kit. The premium line starts with 420 Japanese stainless steel. Much of the production is still done by hand in “old world” traditions. After production, each tool is passivated, removing the iron content from the surface area of the steel. This substantially reduces the risk of corrosion. Next, the makers black oxidize each tool, further protecting the product from rust or corrosion even in the harshest saltwater environments. All cutting tools (scissors and coral cutters) are further tempered/emblazed at the tips, which results in superior cutting performance year after year.
