OK... those scissors are badass... imagine transplanting an enlarged version of that to a Surge :drool:

I don't have a major problem with the pivot distance nor with the thumb being too short, even with my medium sized hands. Cutting length yes, that is a tad limited...

On the Surge, my thumb does not reach the moving handle, if I hold the tool normally. I have to have it lower in my palm, to operate the scissors.
Shame. It's perfect for my hands.
Different strokes for different folks I guess.

I agree with Syncop8r.
The Surge scissors are very functional for me.  Have tested them Right and left handed, using thumb (top), or with index finger (bottom).
They are sharp and feel that they maybe the best scissors of any MT I have used.

PS: yes my paws are of the XL size, even sometimes XL gloves are small.  Flexible material works best, or stretch wet leather for good fit;)

I like the scissors on the Surge, too. They are very strong and the proportions of handle to cutting surface give excellent leverage for thicker materials. You can cut leather without issue. I doubt it would be as easy with the Juice.

And to solve the bit holder falling out of the sheath potential I wrap a rubber band around mine

Thanks :D

The inspiration actually came from the exact opposite location on the planet, more specifically from Syncop8r who had done this before together with zoidberg, so thanks to them too :tu:

Not exactly my first Surge, but really like this one. Got it recently as used. Love it when I receive one that well used but not abused. It has got the natural worn look to it. Tight places are still tight, places that's suppose to be loose are well seasoned. Definitely one of my favourite piece now.
