I still have mine. Saunders name on them. They may not be "fancy" enough for today's archers.

Black Widow Bow Co. has them for $10. 3Rivers Archery also probably carries them.

Shouldn't be difficult to find. Got mine given to me from an archery shop specializing in wheelie bows. The manager also shot old recurves some, so we got along pretty good. Try starting your search from where the nocks are made, like Saunders. Some old time phone calls should provide the fastest answers. Good luck on your search.

Said old time phone call because lately I've been trying to get my family in Florida (daughter, grandudes and grand-dudeces, to use the phone part of their phone, but not having any luck. They send texts just to ask what's for dinner. When I was their age, I went home as fast as I could to find out.

I looked at 3 Rivers, Lancaster, F&S Archery and Saunders website. All have more modern pliers type. A couple looked like something a guy would use to repair a space shuttle. Those old blue ones worked great because it could really squeeze the nock point. The newer ones only close so far. If you have the smallest nock point on a small diameter string serving like my wife's bow the nock point may not be secure enough. My usually end up using regular baby slip joint pliers to finish the job.

I carry 2 pair, cheap ones for putting them on and an expensive pair of the Tru- Fire for taking them off, don't like at all how they do the opposite!

I've got one like the blue one but its black. I haven't used it in 30 or 35 years ever since I found one that looks more like a small pliar and has sharper points that opens nocksets better no matter how tight they're bent.
