Forceps & Nipper Set
Besides a rod, line and fly, these are the only two other items we consider pretty much essential in our outings:
A small, ultra light forceps with a flat tip to remove the barb of your flies and remove the hooks that are deeper in a fish, and a small nipper to cut tippet when you change your flies. Not quite tenkara-exclusive, these are high quality standard forceps and nippers with features we picked based on our preference.

Great forceps & nipper kit - these forceps hold when locked down
These are my favorite forceps and nippers. I have a separate pair for each of my tenkara rods (in a Tenkara USA strap pack), each of my western flyfishing setups, and each spinning rod/lurebox combination.
Standard issue nippers and forceps, I like that they're compact and fit in my Tenkara fishing bag better than my other sets do. Work well and are obviously good quality and will last me for a long time.
Nice matte finish on both products. The hemostats work great for the size trout I routinely catch high in the Colorado Rockies. The nippers... well, they nip well.
Perfect for my minimal setup.
