Completely forgot doing that on mine. Guess I really don’t dislike my fixed scissors. Ouch!
They are some very good snippers right out of the box ... but my OCD was poking me...
I know it was advertised as military, but I get the feeling it was designed more with first responders in mind, in which case it is very practical and probably close to perfect. Looking at the toolset of the SAK Rescue and the SwissTool RS, it is very similar. Then add that in many areas (outside US) a OHO tool is frowned upon without justification. Although both the Rescue and RS did have a form of saw and the Rescue doesn’t have scissors. I am not in the field, but would be curious to know what police, paramedics, firemen feel about the utility of the toolset and saw vs scissors.I know I must be in the minority due to not really minding no saw, but even though the scissors aren’t as nice as 91mm, I wouldn’t have like if they had eliminated the scissors. Then again, I wouldn’t have been tempted and it would have saved me money.I can understand the frustration of those who do like and miss the saw.
Parashutists might have a need for that serrated blade as well Anyhow, there's different models of the Spirit to suit different needs and this new MXBS does seem to appeal
Maybe if it catches on they’ll make a different version that includes wood saw

Both blades are put on the same side so the left hand one is the serrated
Did you ever tried something as delicate as opening your tool with your trembling fingers while victims are in pain and blood is spattering around in freezing cold? Well, I did, and you certainly don't want to fumble around to find the right blade.
It was sold on military.sg but has since disappeared from the website.
It's all for history my friend, for history - any phrase from you is priceless! Checked your latest changes in Sakwiki - excellent, nothing to add..But Im a little bit confused regarding mentioning of previous version of Spirit - XBS:Code: [Select]This model is available with (3.0224.3CN) and without (3.0224.xxx) the cap crimper in the pliers.Never seen XBS without crimper. Can anybode share some pictures of it?

I saw that but didn't really think that I'd get it delivered to the UK I guess the waiting game begins
That is where I got mine also.
Showoff! well done mate!!
That wasn’t showing off. The showing off has been the EDC Challenge where it has been in several pictures. If I’m not mistaken the “.sg” represents Singapore.
Correct!And now to get my a$$ over to the Challenge thread...
What does XBS means???
XBS... Xissors Black Subdued?
