CRKT describes this item as follows:
We think it's the world's best camp shears/scissors combination. It's
perfect for hunting camp, fishing camp, hiking camp, RV kitchen, and
When you want to travel light, here’s a world-class solution that would
have delighted Marco Polo. It’s called the Crossover™, and it’s a
premium-quality shears, kitchen knife, bottle opener, lid
lifter/screwdriver, and grill cleaner. Yes, others have tried this
combination, but none have done it as well in a functional, lightweight
In the outdoors, heavy-duty shears come in handy. On a tossing boat in
the open ocean, they are far safer than a knife when venting your salmon
or steelhead catch. And they are essential when cleaning your duck,
pheasant, grouse, goose or turkey. The Crossover has a special boning
notch on the shears, which makes preparing birds much easier and faster.
Later, when you need a camp kitchen knife, simply twist the Crossover
handle to release the scissors pair, press the flexible scissors finger
loop back into the handle, and you have a quality Razor-Sharp 5.5" knife
capable of slicing and dicing your next meal. It’s a chef’s knife
without compromise— well balanced, perfectly sized for every chore from
slicing steaks to chopping onions.
The Crossover also has a jar and bottle opener, plus an extended lid
lifter/screwdriver that has dozens of uses around the camp, from opening
jars and bottles to tightening screws.
The Crossover is built with full-tang high-carbon stainless steel frame
underlying the knife/scissors, with ergonomic injection-molded Zytel®
handles. The scissors finger loop is made of flexible TPR with a
stainless steel strap core for long life.
Unlike conventional shears, the Crossover can be fully cleaned while
disassembled, so nothing collects at the pivot point.
You also have a precision scissors which can be handy if you suddenly
need to trim clothing, tents or sails.
As a bonus, the Crossover also has a unique semicircular notch near the
shears tip which is designed as a grill scraper.
On the trail, the Crossover has some limitations. It won’t fill out your
tag, it won’t dry your socks by the campfire, and it won’t stay up all
night to watch for bears. But other than that, it’s the perfect outdoor
