I like SAK scissors best and deliberately bought a Rebar recently because it doesn’t have scissors knowing I’ll be carrying a SAK too.The Rebar saves about 40-45gm over my wave or spirit, both with good scissors but not as good as a SAK in my mind, allowing me to carry a compact for similar weight but overall more versatilityHaving said that like carrying just spirit or wave too but good to switch it up
Scissors are a sticking point for me. They either need to be very good, or not there. I would get a Leatherman Signal before I got a Wave+ just because the Wave+ scissors look too small. With hiking and camping, I can do without scissors, and would rather carry a tool that didn't have them actually. In town though, I've become accustomed to having them - and I like to have good ones. I'm in agreement that a scissorless tool plus a secondary tool with scissors is a good way to go... but for me, it would probably be a Micra instead of a Compact.I can't get myself on board with the Vic Classic scissors. Sometimes I wish I could because that would open up a lot of combo options. It's a reason I haven't pulled the trigger on an Armbar yet. I'm not that selective with other implements... but for scissors, I either like them to be strong and capable... or not there (I'm OK with carrying a Micra but I prefer to do so without redundancy)
I totally agree Elvenblade but I will say the Wave scissors are better then you think. They are strong and capable despite their smaller size IMO.
It took me a while to take any of these scissors seriously....Now I've found I like the Wenger / Delemont scissors best. I carry an Esquire in my watch pocket when I'm at work. However, I rely on my Executive during white collar times. Meanwhile, my Ranger has the big scissors. I grew to appreciate scissors because they cut the black plastic strapping cleanly and crisply at work. Knives, I find, sometimes split the strapping, ruining it. So when I'm trimming fouled strapping to restrap it, I use the scissors. I also found they work good for fingernails, packages, and many other things. So I grudgingly give scissors a place in my pocket.
The only good scissors that leatherman made are in the surge, and even then it doesn't work great for hygiene tasks due to large size...58mm vic + a full size multitool (without scissors) ftw.
I've got to have scissors. I don't like being without them. I have carried a pair of electrician's snips with tools that don't have scissors such as the Super Tool 300, but I like the Victorinox scissors best because of everything else you can do with a SAK.
