I'm not sure how to say this without sounding snarky, but if you'd read this entire thread, admittedly a long one, you'd know.

For fast reference, here's where I posted my test results for the juice.
http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,36798.msg608364.html#msg608364

In short, they're about as good as a HEAVILY USED pair of scissors on a 58mm vic classic... if you're RIGHT handed. Which I'm not. If you're left handed, they're only good for the easiest materials I tested (paper, PETE plastic bottle, and non-corrugated cardboard), and are either bad or completely fail every other material I tested.

Here's the last post in this thread where I posted all of the test numbers in order. While I marked it as 'used', I later got another Juice to test, which WASN'T used, and got the same results.
http://forum.multitool.org/index.php?action=post;topic=36798.75;last_msg=776751

If it happens twice I have to assume the scissors are just bad across the line, and I'm not hearing anything from other folks refuting that.

If all you use them for is light cutting, they may work fine for you, but the tests I did involve some pretty serious cutting tasks, which the Juice scissors simply aren't up to, and as a particular strike against them for ME, is that they're worse for lefties. In fact, nothing but cheap knock-offs (And SOG's atrocious excuse for scissors) were worse.

Juice scissors are a hell of a lot better than Wingman scissors!

Lol yes and there better than the ones on my Charge. My wife's Juice seem to do pretty good. Well at least on paracord anyways. Never tried anything serious with them.

I don't have a problem with that, I just have problems with them pushing whatever I'm cutting all the way out of the jaws.

I got an old Leatherman PST II off of ebay the other day, and decided (sort of by request) to test the scissors here. One of the handles has a date stamp of 0196. No date stamp on the other. I cleaned the tool, but did nothing else. The scissors are in excellent condition, but no telling how much wear is on them.

Test result: Failed nothing. Barely adequate for khakis an paracord. Passed PETE and cardboard box with distinction.

Final score: +9

Very good, and pretty darn comfortable to use. They bogged under the thicker materials, but otherwise cut fine. For being 18 years old, I was very impressed.

Necro, because I am in the market for scissors:

1- Someone on this forum positively reviewed a pair of keychains size Kobalt scissors:

(http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,10899.msg202497.html#msg202497)

I used to own a pair - they came in a pack with a small folding knife for like 7$ at Lowes. They were a bit larger than style/crosscut/micra scissors, a little big for key chain carry, and the extra tools on them were redundant since I carried a wave at the time. They felt great and cut well, and had rubber grippy side panels. Because they were too big to keychain carry, I put them in the tape measure pocket of carpenter jeans and they fell out...somewhere, and I lost them. Wonder how they would stand up in this test?

2- I suppose the Leatherman Raptor is outside the scope of this test, being full sized scissors.

3- My EDC has always been multitool plus OHO folding knife. I am reconsidering: a multitool plus independent scissors would probably be more useful. I don't want to carry all three. I like the idea of the Paul Chen multitasker, but it's a full size multitool with all the redundant bits. A combination folder / utility shears would be great. If the powerduo or leatherman freestyle plier heads were replaced by shears that would be a great carry tool.

To test scissors, we fishing guys will use the scissor to cut braided fishing line.The braided line look like normal thread. Most scissors will fail in the first attempt. Only the super good will cut the braided fishing line.
in fact if you buy scissor in a fishing shop .Those label "can cut braided" cost more than normal scissor ::cheers:
