Price shopping websites for open jaw tickets?

I'm from the US and I really like using Skyscanner to purchase tickets at the lowest prices possible. I can get a calendar view with ticket rates for each day of the month, and since my flight days are flexible, I can just pick the day of the month that's the cheapest for me.

But this only works for one way tickets and for roundtrip tickets from the same destination/origin. I can't search for the cheapest prices on an open jaw ticket.

Anyone know of any online price comparison search engines that allow searching for open jaw tickets?

Right now it seems like I have to do two one way ticket searches. One for going from, say, Honolulu to Beijing. The other from Hong Kong to Honolulu. And manually match the airlines. And then call the airline itself and ask if they can give me an open jaw ticket deal based on the listed prices on Skyscanner.

Try this website, selecting the "multi-city" tab at the top for open jaw flights. You can find flights with the lowest prices over a range of dates, but you can't buy direct from this website.

www.orbitz.com ; www.cheapoair.com ; plenty of others. Most international airlines have multi-city searches on their home pages.
I like itasoftware too (it's owned by Google now) but it only provides information without actually selling tickets itself. Follow up its suggestons on other sites. I look at skyscanner for info on European budget carriers.
Do not buy one-way tickets, except on budget airlines. Traditional carriers often charge more one-way than for a return ticket.
