This is going to be a big claim but I have been searching for the ultimate hook for a very long time. To some extent hook sharpness is the difference between success and failure. I would have to say these are the sharpest hooks I have ever come across without the need for additional sharpening. Please use the zoom-in facility to see how sharp they are. My own Widegape Pluses are a great all rounder, both in open water and weed fishing. Available in size 6 only and in a nickel finish.
