Nice looking, easy to hold, basic tool with pliers

  • Oct 24, 2009

This is a very attractive multitool. I have several, and many of them look more like weapons than tools, which is generally not a good thing when all you are trying to do is open a bottle without scaring the rest of the party guests.

The knife is a good shape for cutting things that are not too thick (it isn't very long). It has a nice clip to attach it to a belt loop. Although it fits nicely in a pocket, it is too large (in my opinion) to attach to keys. The same company makes a micro sized tool if you are interested in using it as a key fob.

Finally, the pliers are very good, easy to deploy (though a bit stiff), and very useful. I sometimes wonder what people are using the five different sized knife blades on some of these tools, so replacing them with a large fold out pliers seems like a great idea.

Because it is attractive, useful, and reasonably priced, it will make a good gift for someone (or yourself!). I like it!
