Gerber’s Shortcut might remind you of the tiny pocketknife your grandfather carried, sometimes referred to as a “gentleman’s pocketknife.” Much like your grandpa’s knife, it’s small, useful, and good looking — unlike that knife, it packs a small set of stainless steel scissors as well as other implements for hacking, cutting, and fixing.

In the Shortcut’s 2-1/2″ frame (4.13″ fully extended), you also get a file, two flathead screwdrivers, a crosspoint driver, a nail cleaner, and the obligatory bottle opener. The frame, made of aircraft aluminum, comes in either “Red Tail Hawk” or “Special Ops Gray.” Street pricing is about $15.

    After carrying one for two and a half years now, my Shortcut is still going strong, although I did have to replace the mini split-ring once.

    The scissors are pretty much the Shortcut’s only redeeming quality. The flat drivers are okay too though. The tweezers, nail file and philips bit have disappointed me the several times I’ve needed them. I’ve never tried using the bottle opener because it’s too hard to open with coins and keys.

    If I lose my Shortcut, I’ll likely spring for a Leatherman S4. Still, the Shortcut is a great pocket tool since the scissors outdo those found in all of the full-sized multitools I have ever seen.

    I’ve been very happy with mine since I received it as a Christmas present. No problems with any of the tools on it that I’ve used so far.

    Love my gerber tool, the only thing is my scissors are dull. No other multi function tool scissors compare to these.
    How can you sharpen them?
    Thank you
