I didn't even know the Shortcut existed, But I will lump it in with the group as well. Please submit any SBMT that isn't on the list for my researching pleasure...
the compact is a top-notch SAK, I don't think you'd be unhappy with one.
I know it's plierbased, but the scissors on the Style PS is better than the Micra imo.
Quote from: AHB on October 17, 2011, 11:10:12 PMI know it's plierbased, but the scissors on the Style PS is better than the Micra imo. I'm very curious, what do you like better about them?
I mainly carry scissors for trimming nails and small cutting tasks and I think the PS scissors are more handy/maneuverable than the Micra.
What's the latest? Micra? Splice? Style CSI like the Style CS except it's too obtrusive to call itself minimalist. At that size, it needs a decent screwdriver or something extra.
I have a Leatherman Style PS that I occasionally carry but the spring in the scissors awlready broke twice! I'm not the only one with this issue. I can still use the scissors, not as conviniently as when the spring worked, though. Since I awlso have the Midnite Manager or Executive as my base EDC, the Style is more used for its pliers.
There is also the Nextorch mini.Just came out.https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0826H511B
Good to know about the questionable durability on the Style,I'm put the Micra back on the keychain - it's just a little easier to use at work than the Pioneer X. Then, of course, the bug bit me and I thought about getting something new. I'm pretty satisfied with the Micra - except for the one thing which is both a personal preference I had and a drawback - having to open the tool to get at the knife. On the one hand, it makes the whole tool look sleeker to me... and on the other hand, it's an extra step. So then I get to thinking... what's new in the mini-tool world.
