Reviews

Useful, but potentially misleading

I have this knife, and two other generic Swiss-army style knives that, asside from the scales, are all identical. While I think this knife is a good tool, and has its place in preparedness, you should know that it is really an EMERGENCY tool, and not up to most rigors of hard daily use. More importantly, some of the functions simply do not work. Most conspicuous in this department is the saw. The saw will go dull, and fail to continue cutting through a 3/4" oak branch, or a 2" wide piece of plywood. That's pretty terrible. The scissors are hit-and-miss on budget tools like this, but generally good enough to trim string, or cut paper. Just don't expect much more from them. The blade on every tool like this I've purchased was not sharp, but would take a reasonable edge. This is a very important thing to keep in mind. The cap lifter/flat-head screwdriver, can opener, file, philips screwdriver all work as promised. Over-torquing the phillips driver (which doesn't take much force) will pop the center pin on the tool, essentially tearing it apart. if you're willing to sharpen the main blade, and understand that this is a VERY light-duty tool, I still think it's worth the money. In an emergency, it's worth a lot more than a fist full of nothing.

{Response from Emergency Essentials - Lynn, you are right on about this knife not being a substitute for much more expensive knives designed for everyday use. We intended to offer a sharp, versatile knife for use in infrequent situations (such as emergencies). Customers can buy one for each kit at this price range.}
