 :iagree:

Gerber is going to regret spending the money to develop those scissors.
But, all in all, I'll reserve a final assessment for after I receive one. I'm pretty sure the scissors handle will be a problem, but hopefully they'll straighten that out before shipping them. Not going to hold my breath.

Ya know, if these MT companies would get on MT.o and ask about this stuff, we would gladly help. But, as of yet, they don't bother. Seems they think the dry erase/pencil pushers know more about multitools than a website full of daily MT users and/or collectors. :facepalm:

The Scissors look absolutely idiotic to me?
I am not sure how they think you can use them at all?
Maybe a 2nd Centerdrive to operate the scissor lever? :think:

Seems the CD+ scissors will be limited to paper, thread, really small zipties, and other soft materials. No cardboard, leather and other harder stuff Gerber scissors usually make short work of.:facepalm:

In other words, stuff that the evaporating carbide cutters can't handle without disintegrating :P

Funny you mention that, because I actually made a video recently showing the carbides on a 600 cutting jack chain and 200LB hard wire. I was surprised too.
