The only cons so far is the scale looked plastic to me at the first look. Not sure if its alloy or plastic.
The knife is also nice. I only made a few references to it, so I may review it separately.Overall, good size, good weight, looks nice. Only tip-down is a bit of a bummer. Comfortable in hand, but only three-finger grip due to the finger choil being a little low. But I like it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWJ3Flk_Ek0&t
This pic was released to tease the Phantom and Phantasy, and maybe something else? (Image removed from quote.)The first tool is the Phantasy of course, then the Phantom. The third is a multi-tool that does not match with any side of the Phantom, and looks slimmer than the Phantom as well. I may be spoiling a surprise here, but there may be a third tool we have yet to see.
Do the blades fit in the older Roxon KS501 (obviously you need tools to take this one apart)? I'd love to have a box cutter with the scissors.
I received my S502 Phantasy today, so in case someone is wondering, the answer is probably yes, but it will require a bit of work on the blade. I'm planning to try it once the utility knife option becomes available. Coupled with the monster scissors this would be the ultimate office tool. Of course, if Roxon were to release a version with scissors, it would be even better.
Awesome review! I have a Storm on the way...I’m just waiting for a good price on the Phantom. Though it’s going to be a bit redundant, I’m thinking of getting this one as a ‘trophy to innovation’ of sorts.
That would compliment any multi-tool wonderfully. Of course, if the Phantasy had the scissors, then there would be no reason to buy the KS. And since the Phantom and Phantasy take the same set of blades, it makes sense that people would carry both, so why put scissors on both?Then again, the Phantasy could come with or without the scissors. The Flash does not have scissors. We could carry the Phantasy with scissors and the Flash.
Even better, Roxon could make a knife with detachable scissors, like the tool you found here. Seeing how they're going for modularity (replaceable cutters and blades), that doesn't seem impossible. 2021 will tell...
