Most fishing lines ( that the English word for the thing between
rod and the hook?) I've seen are monofilament wires. While you can use
for strangling people or cutting their heads off (if you're strong
I'm not too convinced about cutting up tanks with them :-)

'Monomolecular' devices has a cutting edge one molecule thin. This is
extremely sharp, and therefore has an easier time cutting through
The rest of the device (blade, thread, whatever) does not need to be as
thin; if they're not, they'll act as a wedge in a crack instead. The
thinner the wedge is the easier the slicing will be, of course.
