A multitool is undeniable in how useful it is for everyday use. Even if someone does not carry one as an EDC, almost everyone has one ready to go or laying around a house, workplace or backpack. No good Boy Scout would ever be caught without his multitool.

Enter the New Dual Cutter from True Knives

This unique tool is a knife and scissor combination. From one end extends a 2.625-inch squared tanto blade made from 3Cr13 stainless steel. It’s been sand-blasted to give an almost satin appearance and does not overly reflect light while still staying bright and conspicuous for dark or wooded surroundings. A liner locker holds the blade in place for safe and efficient use.

The other end features 1.5-inch full-sized micro-serrated scissors. These are included sheers that have been integrated into this knife/multitool combination. The micro-serrations provide additional grip to the cut material, thus providing more refined, steady cutting with a stronger edge.


The Dual Cutter features a tanto blade and micro-serrated scissors.

Not Your Average Multitool

While not much larger than a traditional pocketknife, measuring at 6.265 inches with blade opened and 4 inches closed, the pocket clip secures this knife to the user at all times. It is a bit more robust at 0.75 inches thick and 1.125 inches tall while, weighing in at 0.45 pounds. This is one knife you won’t forget to take. The scales and frame are made of anodized aluminum, making those parts just as durable and completely rust-free in all environments.

Whether you’re looking for a knife to keep with you for simple cutting tasks, something useful in the field while fishing or a just-in-case tool with heft, the Dual Cutter fits the bill. The MSRP is $39.99 and quite reasonable for a unique tool. It’s one more tool to give peace of mind.
