    I always find myself needing scissors. I carry a skeletool CX now and really like it for the one handed opening knife and it's light weight. I just wish it had scissors.

    That said I am looking for either something to complement or replace the skeletool as my EDC that has excellent scissors. What are your suggestions. If it's a replacement it must have pliers and a locking knife blade. If it compliments the skeletool then I a not too concerned with the locking blade.

    Victorinox classic SD on the Keychain?

    Or any SAK with scissors for that matter if you want something larger to compliment

    It's not failure if you learn something from it

    Is there a difference in the scissors of the sd and some of the larger ones?

    SAK. Great scissors. Just try them. Look at a compimentary blade or maybe something to replace you skeletool. They have loads of options.

    Cheers

    I carry a Leatherman style cs to compliment my Skeletool. It is a decent pair of scissors that are small, light weight, and easy to carry. I keep mine clipped on a belt loop for easy access. Visually, they match the Skeletool also, if that sort of thing matters. I never really use the knife blade on it, but the nail file is handy, so are the tweezers... If it only had a toothpick, I wouldn't have to carry a SAK also.

    I carry a vic manager to supplement my skeletool. It's been working well for a while now.

    I love the scissors in my swisscard. If you can squeeze one of those into your daily rotation you are adding a lot of functionality for not much room that complements well with the skeletool (scissors, tweezers, toothpick, pen, small ruler).

    My Swiss card didn't hold up to well in my wallet. It was cracked and broken within a year.... Which was sad because I liked it.

    This shouldn't even be a question. The sky is blue, water is wet, and the BEST scissors on a small multitool are made by the Swiss. Victorinox style is better for facial hair or nail trimming. Wenger style is a little more "commercial grade" with the serrated blades and chassis spring. Pick your size, they come in several. If you find anything better, please let me know, for I am a big scissor user.

    PS. Haven't tried the Boker tool yet, but seems too bulky for my tastes.

    Well my skeletool is laying somewhere along a road so I might need to rethink this.

    We bought a used play set for my kid and I popped the drain plug in the slide and left the multi tool sitting on the trailer deck. Now it's gone.

    Kershaw toucan is a pretty good option of it's just scissors you're looking for.
    Don't own them unfortunately but handled as part of a pass-around box and was very tempted.

    Since you lost your skeletooI would probably look for a wave (my choice 1 gen) not as good scissors as victorinox but you will get plierbased, locking blade(s) and scissors in one fairly light tool

    It's not failure if you learn something from it

    It's chunky, but the Victorinox Hercules has everything you listed. Big scissors and a locking blade

    Well I picked up a super tinkerer today. Going to try that out to see if I can deal with no pliers.

    I have a Leatherman style PS on my keys when having a SAK in my pocket. If I know I will need bigger pliers I bring a separate one

    Depending on how much you need wire cutters on pliers, the wingman isn't bad option. I carried a de-knifed one for a couple of jobs last week it was noticeably lighter than the wave and good enough - and decent scissors.
