Cuda® Mini Serrated Scissors are the best compact first aid kit scissors we’ve found. They have lots of cutting power in a small size. Originally designed for cutting braided fishing line, you’ll find lots of backcountry uses. They’ll easily cut through pack straps, clothes, and bandages in an emergency situation and help cut cordage, repair gear, and open food packages around camp. And they’re lightweight at 0.71 oz (20.3 g).

The thick, robust titanium-bonded stainless steel blades are 3x harder than untreated steel and are both micro serrated to stay sharp longer. The tips are blunted to avoid injury and protect your gear. The pivot is tight and the action is smooth. The grip is rubber-coated and textured for non-slip comfort and control. The finger holes are oversized for use with or without gloves.

SAK scissors are good for small tasks like cutting your nails, but in an emergency, when you need to quickly cut a victim’s clothes to access a wound or cut gauze and tape to dress a wound, larger scissors are more up to the task. While they're not the smallest or lightest, we’ve found these scissors to be the best compromise between size, weight, and utility. 

Add a pair to your first aid kit and be confident you’ll be ready if the need arises. But we bet you’ll be breaking them out for lots of other things too because for some tasks, scissors just make it easier.

    Perfect for the Backcountry

    Posted by William McCaffrey on 8th Jan 2021

    In the backcountry I think these little scissors get used more than my knife. I’m the guy in the group who often carries a proper medical kit. I always keep a roll of moleskin to help myself and friends out with blisters and hotspots. This is a lifesaver in that situation. This will be a permanent part of my kit. Since these are serrated they remain super sharp. You’d be surprised how many camp tasks these are wonderful for as well such as opening meals, cutting string if you need to sew up gear, removing an annoying tag, etc.

    Good scissors. Everything in the description is true

    Posted by Shelley Chacon on 29th Nov 2020

    I bought from Amazon then later found here and ordered another pair several years ago. Just another product that Litesmith found that you don’t have to. Good place to find many little “light” things that you didn’t know you needed or can’t find on own. By now I trust their judgement and great customer service! I now carry the Micro Scissors with cover as very sharp and don't really need these but the Cudas are "heftier" and will more easily cut thicker items

    Awesome little mole skin snipper

    Posted by Damien Hickey on 24th Jan 2020

    I use these to cut the mole skin sheets you get at tar-j. The larger handle and serrated blade make that task super easy. I've even used these to cut a friends shoulder strap after it ripped from his pack. These live in my emergency kit. Worth every gram.
