CrossCut: the BEST pocket scissors/mini-tool

    Hi Ron,

    Thought I'd support your forum by giving props to the CrossCut: again, the BEST mini-tool in its class.

    If you use scissors regularly, as I do, the CrossCut is the sturdiest, most effective cutter in its size. The gear system and slightly contoured handles significantly improve control, cutting strength, and comfort over "the other guys.'"

    The 3/16" (4.5 mm) wide tweezers actually *work*.

    Equally, the single-cut file actually files. OK, so you may hardly (or never) use it; but if it's going to take up space, it might as well be functional (unlike those pebbled metal thingies).

    So there. To the competition, the CrossCut says: eat my shorts.


    One "modification" question, Ron. I know the CrossGrip comes w/a small Phillips screwdriver in lieu of the CrossCut's toothpick. Can these two tools be exchanged? If so, is it possible to purchase the screwdriver separately, or send in to your shop to have it swapped/added?

    Thanks --
    Glen

    Hi Story,

    Thank you for the kind comments about our CrossCut. It is always wonderful to hear from people who use our products in the field.

    Regarding swapping the Phillips screwdriver and the toothpick, let me find out and let you know.

    Thanks for the info, Ron. I’ve got some “pitpicky” follow-up questions (sorry!).

    If I want the Phillips screwdriver, could I simply mail my CrossCut to you guys and have it exchanged (for a fee)? Or would I need to buy a CrossGrip and swap it on my own?

    Also, since the screwdriver is a little narrower than the toothpick it would replace, would the gap need to be filled w/a spacer or mini-washer of some sort?

    Thanks --
    Glen

    The most common complaint I have read about the CrossCut as compared to the Micra is that while the CrossCut will often outcut the Micra, it can bind on material the the Micra will cut smoothly. Glen have you had any problems in this area with the CrossCut?

    Hi Cliff,

    Our CrossCut is meant to cut paper as thin as toilet paper and is also tested on rubber bands. These two substances are true tests for binding while cutting.

    SOG maintains an outstanding warranty policy. If the CrossCut will not meet these tests in the field, we will repair or replace it according to our warranty policy. Period.

    I hope this helps in explaining our commitment to our quality control and backing up our products.

    How has other people's experience been?

    I don't recall any problems w/binding w/my CrossCut. I picked it up after having two Micras (in 7 months) bind, due to the scissors loosening at the join. Leatherman replaced it both times, but I gave away the second after using the CrossCut for a while. The CrossCut's construction seems to keep its blades together more tightly, and has been more durable to date.
