I hope you guys are proud of yourselves!I've never quite got the point of the Micra,and could never justify the price of them!
But got a 2nd hand one via Swiss Knife and Tool for £9.I'm a victim of peer presure!And glad of it!

Although it needs a clean up,I get the point of the now!



Still think they're over priced though!

There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

I have to admit that I never did either, not until I got a chance to play with one.  I went form 'meh' to 'ah' quite quickly. :D

Gave my little bleeder a clean,lube and sharpen this evening,really improved the 'snap' of it!Somehow its managed to replace the SAK Manager on my work keyring for this week!

As a tangent,the SOG Crosscuts do cut better than either the Micra or the Style CS?

Ooooh, I love the PS idea :tu:

Is it possible to make one does anyone know? I have a Micra and  PS I'm willing to torture for the cause :D

I really like the PS except for the inferior file. The micra is just so damn classy in comparison.

Maybe.  Just.  I don't have any accurate measuring devices here, but just going by eye it might work.  The issue I can foresee is that the pliers head is a bit thicker looking, so while I think it would just fit in the space between the other tools when closed, I'm not so sure that it would cram into the end of the handles (where the knurled fasteners go through). 

If anyone had a spare pliers head kicking around I'd love to see them try it. :tu:

OK, I got the callipers out at work today and sadly my suspicion was right, the pliers are about 0.5mm thicker than the Micra's scissors. :-\  I'm not saying that this mod couldn't be done, but I think it would need a little tinkering to make it work.

I did and it's very impressive.  I'm not certain the tips are quite robust enough for what I tend to use them for, but that's not to take way from what's an excellent mod. :tu:

My concern with the mod would be how the Micra is designed to have the scissors cross over each other when closed. Might be a difficult limitation to overcome with pliers. :think:
