Ultra efficient scissors that fits in your palm

"8in1 multi-compact scissors" ideal for minimalist camping

Go camping with only the minimum amount of luggage you need!

We, "Eiger Tool", put together 8 kinds of tools in palm-sized scissors of only 13 cm to enjoy minimalist camping at its best.

These are the "8in1 multi-compact scissors".

Our "8in1 multi-compact scissors" look like simple scissors at first glance, but when you use them, you realize they are actually a useful multi-tool, far from your regular pair of scissors!

Beside the “scissors” function, made even more convenient, we also added the functions of knife, can opener, bottle opener, screw lid opener (for example to use on plastic bottle lids), shell splitter, lid opener (for example,curry powder can lids), and aerosol can degassing tool.

You won’t have to bring all your tools with you anymore, and it is also easy to prepare and clean up! The perfect companion for minimalist camping!

When using a function other than scissors, such as the knife, can opener, bottle opener, etc., just disassemble the scissors before use! The fact that it can be disassembled makes it even easier to clean.


① Lid opener - Just pull to open!



② Bottle opener - Indispensable on any camping trip!

③ Can opener - Easily pry open food cans!



④ Degassing tool - For use on used aerosol cans!

⑤ Scissors - Effortlessly cut ingredients and more!


⑥ Knife - Can be used to cut food or craft feather sticks!


⑦ Cap opener - Open plastic bottle caps with ease, even with slippery hands!

The blade can also be used to light a fire with a metal match.


These functions are useful not only for outdoor activities such as camping, but also in the event of a natural disaster.

There are various types of scissors.

Rasha cutting shears, kitchen scissors, office scissors ...

All are convenient scissors made to suit specific needs.

However this time, we tried to make it lightweight and compact so that it is easy to carry and store.

Even packed with so many different features, the total length of the scissors is only about 13cm, fitting in the palm of your hand (not considering individual differences), and its weight is only about 53g, 103g when stored in its case.

Because they are extra compact, the scissors, by themselves, fit in a No.1 mess tin, and in a No.1.5 mess tin when in their leather case.

The “8in1 multi-compact scissors” are made of stainless steel. There is a common misconception that stainless steel does not rust, however, it is only rust resistant and rusting can still happen. 

You absolutely do not want to use rusted scissors when cutting food. With that in mind, we set out on finding a way to make it even more rust resistant so that you can safely use it to cut ingredients.

We consulted with Nakano & Co.Labs, which specializes in metal surface treatment in Tsubame City, Niigata Prefecture .

The "8in1 multi-compact scissors" is much less likely to rust thanks to the use of a treatment called colored oxide film, which gives it a sleek black color.

This colored oxide film has an excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance, further improving the intrinsic corrosion resistance of stainless steel, and making it possible to color stainless steel without coating or dyeing. The beautiful texture of the metal can thus be maintained, and the color tone changes slightly depending on the light and angle, creating an interesting effect that cannot be obtained with other coloring methods. This coloring is also very resistant and suitable for outdoor use.

Moreover, since the thickness of the film is 1 µm (1/1000 mm) or less, there is no loss of sharpness, which is the most important criterion for scissors as blades.

It is a clear black color that lets the texture of the metal show, which is different from a pure black color.

The scissors’ body is of course made in Japan.

Each one is manufactured by hand by a long-established manufacturer specializing in scissors.

Being only 1µm, does the colored oxide film really not affect the sharpness of the blade? We had an experienced blade craftsman make the adjustments on the blade and screw, making no compromise to ensure our scissors boast the utmost sharpness.

The “8in1 multi-compact scissors” come with a leather case at the perfect size, designed specially for them.

We considered an entirely black design that also looked pretty cool, but we realized it could be a little troublesome to find in a dark place, so we chose to make the stitches and carabiner red for both visibility and design.

Moreover, by fixing rivets on the four corners of the case, the cutting edge does not come into contact with the stitches, preventing them from fraying.The color of the nickel plated rivets is also black, matching nicely with the color of the leather case.

Thanks to a button attachment on the case, the scissors will not unexpectedly pop out of the case. The button is also nickel plated in a black color.

With the cutting edge safely tucked away, you can hang the scissors on a bag, such as a backpack, or hang it on your belt to carry it with you.

 Enjoy as the leather case gains in character as you use it!


The carabiner that comes with the leather case is made by NITE IZE.

NITE IZE is widely known in the United States as a brand that handles mountaineering and outdoor equipment. The carabiner used with this case has a lock function to prevent the unpleasant surprise of finding out you dropped the leather case somewhere along the way.

Our project received a formal approval from NITE IZE in the United States for attaching their carabiner to our product.

We are releasing new colors exclusively for Kickstarter.

The color is applied only to the handle in order to preserve the sharpness of the blades!

Eiger Tool Co., Ltd., which was founded in 1947, is now in its 75th year.

When it was founded under the name Sanko Hardware as a metal utensil wholesaler in Sanjo City, Niigata Prefecture, which is famous as a metalworking town, we were selling wares crafted by hard working local manufacturers and craftsmen to hardware stores and home centers nationwide.

The current "Eiger Tool" was originally used as our brand name. When the previous company president went to Switzerland and realized that the shape of the Eiger’s North Face was similar to a sharpened blade, they decided to make it the brand’s name.


This name was then adopted 15 years ago as the company name. When we decided to manufacture our own goods.

We develop and manufacture highly original products from hobby tools (precision knives, etc.) to precision tools (mini clamps, etc.). We wanted to upgrade the scissors, classic representatives of the cutting tools, and deliver our products to a new type of user.

This project has been created with the cooperation and guidance of many people. We used a nicely fitted gift box for people who like camping, mountaineering or fishing to be able to enjoy the well known quality of Tsubame Sanjo’s products.


As Eiger Tools, we will continue to make original products that are useful to everyone.

The car I ride isn’t that big, so I want to pack as little luggage as possible. I also want to reduce the weight when I go mountain climbing occasionally, so I keep the amount of luggage I bring with me to a minimum.

Also, because I am not good at organizing things, it was difficult to quickly find the tool I wanted to use when I needed to pick it out from the mess in my luggage.

So I got a multi-tool that was compact and had everything from a knife to scissors and pliers, but when an emergency happened, the scissors were rusty and couldn't be taken out, moreover, I got injured by trying to get them out with my nails, and from there gave up on trying to use them again.

At a roadside station I stopped by on my way to the camp, they were selling craft beer and craft cola that were the trend in the area, and I really wanted to give it a try, but I gave up because it needed a bottle opener. This compact 8in1 has a nice bottle opener function, so you don’t have to worry about not being able to open that drink you just bought.

The sharpness of the scissors is excellent, and after using them, they can be disassembled and washed with water, so very easy to clean and it seems like you won’t have to deal with the worst case scenario where they become useless with rust.
