Scissors!

31.10.2018

Today i am extra glad because i have my edition of the Swiza scissors function. I will test this for some time to learn and enhance the knowledge about this design. This model is called D08 Red and I have shown you before the other functions that you get on this particular model except for the scissors function. I am a bit positively surprised that the scissors function is so large. It is a different configuration compared to most Swiss Army Knives and Swiss knives. The design is special and it got a guiding section for the range of motion that you can find on Swiss knives. What is different is the size and operation.

The function is opened in a tradition fashion with a slip-joint design and when open it you can use the fingers to operate the tool for cutting tasks. It got a long sharp edge so you can cut more material at the time. You only need to press down because the spring system with the slip-joint spring will reopen it every time. This mean you get a comfortable functionality and you can get precision for the cutting tasks. It feels sturdy in the hand and it is very sharp. I will use this on many materials for a good time. It is always extra interesting when new functions are introduced. I am very glad for all my friends that are helpful so I can learn more.

My first impression is very nice and it is comfortable for cutting. With scissors and wood saw now implemented in the Swiza selection of functions you get a full Swiss product with a huge possibility  for many models.

Traditional scissors on SAKs and Swiss knives are not so large. This depends on the category because large scissors was implemented before. The most traditional Swiss knives on the 84, 85 and 91mm categories to mention a few use/used scissors that is not so large. On the picture you see a Wenger type side by side with the D08. I have used the Victorinox 91mm and the Wenger 85mm scissors much over the years and I like them very much. They are very useful, durable and got the high quality functionality. Swiza implemented a new design that takes full advantage of the handle. You get the maximum amount of size on the function. Usually the traditional scissors are operated by a type of integrated spring or a separate spring. By using the thumb you can cut many materials. The Swiza design is special because you operate the two blades that form a scissor by the thumb and fingers. There are cut sections on the blades for the fingers to rest and the handle functions for stability like normal. It is very interesting. It is fully possible to hold the fingers at different parts of the two blades. You get a versatile cutting tool in deed.

The Swiza scissors got a very good stability and smooth precision. The edges are even and the sharpness is also very good.   The weight of the D08 is about 115grams.

I will test the scissors on different materials. What I can say so far is also that I really like how everything is rounded on the parts for this function so it is comfortable in the hand when closed and when you use it. Because it is rounded you can use the full length of the two blades with comfort. Another detail that I found on their webpage is that it is designed for left hand or right hand use, which is nice. Some multifilament cord and line can be difficult for most scissors and this included. It cut paper like a dream.  In many ways size does matter and in other situations size does not matter. In many ways it is the case that large tools does the job faster and that I agree upon. There is one detail that I noticed right away when you cut cords that can be difficult and you only kind off get it in between. Because the long edges on this you can just use it as a knife and let the flat-webbing, cords or small string just slide with some light pull and you cut it like nothing. Very nice.

The scissors cut paper types in different thickness very well. It bites into cardboard too. It struggle with fabrics and cords. That I expected because of the design. This is best for mono filament fishing line and paper types. The two scissors edges are very sharp and you can if you pull cut many materials including fabrics. Most would say that this is what you use the knife blade for. Well not completely because you can do better precision with this function and you can lock the fabric by pressing the thumb as you pull with the other hand. Or you can as mentioned above just hold it in reverse and pull the materials you want to cut. I always like to let the edges do the job on any Swiss knives. By having such a philosophy you do not use to much force on the functions. Same goes for the screwdrivers and other functions. That said the Swiza knife construction and designs are sturdy. It is smart to use the tools correct and to learn, gather information and get to know it. I will see how the weeks go on how the scissors knowledge become.  What we have now is an alternative to the traditional designs. This is good.

I have tested the scissors some more and learned a few things about it. It can be used sideways on herbs, grass and soft plants. Try it on the herbs when cooking.

I am getting used to the motion and the functionality of the scissors. I tested it on 2,5 mm high quality leather and it cut it rather easy. This I did just to see how the edge sharpness and design takes tough materials. I cannot see any areas of the edge that is changed after this. It is not recommended with such designs for such materials. Basically it comfortable to use but some cords, multifilament or materials will get in between the two scissors edges and prevent cutting. As mentioned before.

 

One thing I also mentioned is that you got the two sharp edges that form the scissors and you can take advantage of the longer construction. You got in a way two extra sharp edges or blades that can be used for a lot of cutting tasks.  With the main knife blade and the scissors you have in reality three fair size edges and that is a big safety factor.

Edge holding ability on the scissors is good, no change yet. Cuts paper like a machine. It can be used on hair and beard but it is not so well on adhesive bandage. Remember to make sure to keep the mechanism clean and oiled.

I am very glad that swiza implemented a set of scissors with this interesting design. Because of the design it is very easy to cut long straight cuts in paper. It is not so easy to cut round pieces. It requires some practice but possible. It can be used on fingernails to some degree. There is no change on any edge or construction. I would like if possible for Swiza to adjust or increase the precision on the inner section, this to make it better on cords and fabrics. It could be that the precision is there but it may need some adjusting in the design. It could be because it is a longer configuration that makes the scissors parts flex and therefor materials can get in between. By all means it is a high quality product but it got potential to be better. In the outdoors it can be necessary to cut bandage or adhesive-bandages to fit. Scissors are excellent for personal hygiene and maintenance.  It is the same thing in urban areas too. Like I mentioned it is nothing wrong with the sharpness of the scissors edges. It is sharp like a knife.

I know enough now about the scissors function to understand it better. It is always fun to learn new functions. It is easy to clean and it is also possible to sharpen in the future. No change on the edge from anything I did. The only factor is the one I mentioned above that it should have a bit better ability on some materials.

left-hand or right-hand use

Here is one more picture of the scissors function. It is very positive that no change can be seen on the construction, mechanism or edges. I do not use force on SAKs or Swiss knives. I let the edge and tools do the tasks. That said they can take some hard hands if necessary. All mechanisms should be clean and oiled.

Conclusion

 

The scissors is made of high quality materials with precision. It is easy to open and close and it is comfortable. I can explain some further about cords and braided cords. For sure you can use the knife blade or serrated blades for this. Anyhow sometimes it is nice to use scissors for cutting thin cords and so on. You can use the knife blade to cut cords and even Paracord with no problem. By press cutting or pull cutting you can make precision cuts. Even so sometimes the need for cutting cords and materials with scissors can be because you simply must cut in a narrow space making it difficult to use the knife blade. In reality it is not a large problem and you have with the Swiza scissors a quality tool implemented. When you get used to it then it is fun to use. The edge is sharp like knives and there is no change from cutting materials that in reality is too much for it. Swiss knives and tools is like a light in the world for me.

About adhesive bandage or adhesive medical purpose tools they are usually covered with a plastic or a material so you can cut it with scissors or knives. Same here you can use the knife blade for this too. Many adhesive medical tools or bandages comes in rolls or folded configurations in medical kits. You often see medical kits with scissors implemented. Here I feel the Swiza scissors could be a bit better.

I hope you all enjoy following my page and hopefully it gives inspiration for knife joy.  The scissors on traditional Victorinox and Wenger SAKs been used for many things and now we have this design that is a nice contribution for our hobby and interest in life. Scissors are helpful tools because when you need precision cutting it can in many situations be very helpful. It is not always so easy to use a knife blade in narrow or small places without the possibility of damaging devices. When a material is cut the blade edge might cut other things on machines or equipment. You can also damage the edge. While a set of scissors can be guided simply over the material that must be cut with precision and no other damage done. Do not hesitate asking me any questions.

Last i would like to explain some more about cutting round pieces of paper. Many cut out things from newspapers and magazines to be used in a scrapbook or maybe artwork.  It is not so easy using the Swiza scissors cutting into a page and making round pieces. It is possible but because of the longer design and motion it is challenging but possible. Well I would say this scissors is incredible on paper and to cut round pieces you simply cut a square around the picture or text and then cut it into size. In other words it is very nice and good for cutting round pieces. It is just a matter of practice and using the mind. This scissors is the best I have used on paper. It is innovative and fun.

With this scissors you do not have any separate or integrated springs in the way. This design you have the inner section closer to the construction of the knife and slip-joint springs.  This mean you must make sure no materials and substances get into the slip-joint mechanism. This is a rule in general for all folding, slip-joints or tools anyhow. Good luck

Hi, yes this could be the reason. Best Regards

Then, it seems that one single spring/lock plate would not hold the mechanism for both blades on XT. Thanks!

Hi, thanks for the response. I think you are right: in fact, the springy section of the curved blade lock is far longer than that of Soldier's bottle opener!

I will have it in my research to see if i can find some info on it with the placing on the gutting/rescue blade. Thanks again. BR
