As much as we appreciate a good EDC knife, it's not always necessarily the best tool for the job. And depending on where you live or work, carrying a blade isn't even an option at all. For those quick cutting tasks, a pair of scissors can get 'em done quickly, safely, and precisely. Even then, an EDC-friendly pair of scissors is surprisingly hard to come by: you've got trauma shears, ones built into bladed multi-tools, or dedicated scissors that can be dangerous to toss into a pocket or bag. With successful products like the Toolpen and Wrenchit under their belt, the innovative team at mininch are back to doing what they do best: re-designing essential tools in a pocket-friendly pen form factor. Their latest Xcissor Pen conceals a compact pair of scissors in a robust, machined stainless steel executive pen, making it an excellent office companion.

Where most pens in this class reserve the barrel of the pen for fancy deployment mechanisms or larger refills, the Xcissor opts for multi-functionality with its set of SUS420 stainless steel scissors. They're squared away until you remove the barrel of the pen, disengage the safety lock, and extend the scissors forward. Fully ambidextrous and measuring in at about 1.5” of cutting length, the scissors give you plenty to work with for easy snipping. You can even choose between a nickel plated finish to withstand corrosion, or a blacked out teflon coating for its non-stick properties.

With the scissors hidden, the Xcissor Pen is still a solid EDC jotter in its own right. It features a robust machined stainless steel construction at a modest and balanced 5.5” overall length while weighing only 2.1 oz, scissors and all. Because of the built-in scissors, the pen lacks any click or bolt action deployment. Instead it features a classic screw off cap with an integrated pocket clip. Fortunately the cap actually posts onto the back of the pen when using it so you're less likely to lose it (not to mention the better balance it provides). The pen comes with a Schmidt 635 Mini D1 ballpoint refill and accommodates similarly sized refills.

If you want a capable tool for the office but would rather not carry a knife, mininch's latest creation is shaping up to be a strong option. It's got a discreet and stylish design and two functional features that can benefit any EDC.
