Slip N Snip Folding Scissors


Folding safety scissors

I carry these little, folding scissors with me everywhere. They are very sharp, and fold and unfold very easily. They are also very powerful considering their size. Best of all they have a very slim (flat) profile in my pocket.

I am an avid fisherman, and fish over lunch, on my way to work, etc and I always take these with me. I have found that they cut every type of line I use (according to my dentist, using your teeth is not advisable). They are also safer to hand to my kids to cut something, as opposed to having them fiddle with my Leatherman.

As a daily carry item these are obviously not as versatile as a small multi-tool, but when cost is a factor (I often fish from a boat and have been known to lose items overboard) or you can’t carry a knife, I highly recommend anyone consider these pocketable scissors.
