Is that scissor skate actually a backwards crossunder though? He's not actually pulling his body, just making C-cuts with the outside edge (I say "just" even though it's incredibly difficult).

This video looks to demonstrate it a lot better:



The way I've heard it described is to grab the ice and pull/drag yourself with the outside edge of the under foot. But every time I try to think through the steps I can't imagine it...I need to be on the ice to actually do them.

Another good video:
