I've been wondering this for a while, I can't decide as the first hit from fury cutter is weaker than X-Scissor, but the third hit (and every hit after that) is stronger. And the first hit still has 90 base power thanks to Technician. Is it worth it, or is X-Scissor still the better option?

What game is this and what do you want to do with this Scizor?  If it isn't a game, which format?

Don't use either, Bug Bite is better.

Scizor @ Life Orb
Ability: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Bullet Punch
- Knock Off
- Bug Bite

Sorry I forgot to clarify this, it's for a Scizor I caught in SwSh so it can't learn bug bite
We need to do something about this, the answer is perfectly fine but does not resolve the question anymore. Would you mind hiding this answer to take the question back to the unanswered list, CyberHedge?
Usually Scizor runs U-Turn of no Bug STAB at all, instead using Roost on some sets.
