  • Smallest, lightest useful scissors
  • Stainless steel blades
  • Safety cover to protect your gear
  • Oversized finger holes
  • Super small, super sharp, super safe
  • Ultralight – 0.17 oz (4.7 g)


Micro Scissors are super small, super light, and super safe. You’ll find lots of backcountry uses where scissors perform better than a knife and make the job easier. And at just 0.17 oz (4.7 g), they’re definitely worth their weight.

The precision-ground stainless steel blades start sharp and stay sharp. The finger holes are oversized and elongated for use with or without thin gloves. A silicone safety cover keeps the sharp tips from stabbing you and your gear. The cover is tethered to the handle so you’ll never lose it, but it can be removed if you want to save even more weight.

Micro Scissors go beyond just cutting your nails, unlike SAK scissors. The finger holes add control and comfort to also easily cut cordage, repair gear, open food packages, and perform first aid. These are the smallest, lightest, actually-useful scissors we’ve found.

Add a pair to your ditty bag and be confident you’ll be ready when the need arises.

    Keep these in my medkit, got plenty of use cutting tape for my feet. The point is very sharp, be careful to keep them covered when not in use.

    Excellent. Everything said in description true

    Posted by Shelley Chacon on 29th Nov 2020

    and I really like the phrase “actually-useful scissors”. Easier to use than foldout “knife" scissors and actually lighter. (I had to disassemble my Victorinox Classic Swiss Army Knife to fix and actually weighed each part and was surprised). 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!

    Best cutting tool for backpacking

    Posted by Tom V on 6th Oct 2019

    Sharp enough to cut dyneema and super light. The only negative is that they are so small that you forget where you put them. I would recommend a bright color so you can see them if they fall on the ground.

    Sharp Blades, Easy Grip

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Mar 2019

    I bought these looking for a lightweight, sharp substitute for my pocket knife. I was concerned the blades wouldn't be sturdy enough to cut my finger nails, but they worked great! I don't really see the need to carry around my swiss army knife any more on camping trips with these - this pair of scissors and a pair of tweezers should cover my bases.

    Super light, cuts first aid tapes and bandages well. Love the cover over the blade.
