Scissors are faster and more precise.
Knives are only for itty bitty cuts
or something to bring if you forgot to bring your gun to the Fight!

Both are important!

Hi everyone,

for me both tools are inportant. I always use a x-acto knife (#11) to cut out glue flaps. But lines without flaps are for the scissors.


Because in my opinion you can do the most exactly cuts with scissors only. When i cut out lines without glue flaps i also "cut away" the outer black line to give the model a more smoother look later. And thats a step you can do better with scissors.
