Review - Slip-N-Snip Folding Scissors

Yeah, this is Knives Blog, but if you think about it, scissors are technically knives with two blades instead of one.

Slip-N-Snip Folding Scissors come in a variety of colors.
Have any of you thought of carrying scissors daily? There are many situations where scissors are just better suited for the task, whether it's cutting paper or snipping a loose thread on a shirt. In these tasks, a knife may get the job done, but it's usually not precise enough to do the job well.

There have always been multi-tools and swiss army knives if you wanted a pair of scissors, but perhaps you don't like the dinky blades that usually come with them. Maybe you like your folding knife, but wanted a way to carry a small pair of scissors.

I've recently discovered a way that you can carry scissors easily with you, without increasing the bulk of your EDC (everyday carry) gear very much at all. They are called Slip-N-Snip Folding Scissors, and apparently have been out for some time now.

When folded, Slip-N-Snips are very compact.
These scissors are U.S. Made and come in a variety of great colors. Their design and function in excellent onsidering that these scissors fold up to only 3.2" in length. When folded, the Slip-N-Snips hide the blades within the steel handles, so there is absolutely no way of poking yourself with them. They unfold very easily as well. Their blades are sharp and cut as well as any scissors that I've ever used.

When you pick these up, you can really feel the quality. They weigh only 1 oz, but have a nice, solid feel. Anyone who has handled a quality folding knife will know what I'm talking about.
As you can see,
unfolding the Slip-N-Snips is very simple.
So, if you're looking for the added functionality that a pair of scissors can give you, but are afraid of adding bulk to your everyday carry gear, consider trying out the Slip-N-Snip Folding Scissors. They're high quality, U.S. Made and inexpensive. Heck, even if you carry them for a while and find out that you don't need scissors as part of your EDC gear, you can always put them in a backpack, Bug Out Bag, Emergency Kit, or First Aid Kit and find use for it there.
