as i remember, ak was a production tyer and created the tools that he need to speed up his tying methods. cranking out 20,000 + dozen flies per year needs every advantage you can find.

the tools he used were suited for him and are merely suggestion to other tyers who want to try tying the way he does.

i'm not a production tyer and i dont like to tie with scissors in my hand, tried it and cant get used to it.

cant get the exact s&m bobbin like ak used back then only a something similar from wasatch. maybe you could find one on ebay.
