Good General Tool

This tool is a generic knock-off of the venerable Leatherman PST (the original plier-based multi-tool). It is not made to that standard, but is still a good light-duty tool. Unlike a LOT of inexpensive multitools, the blade on this came relatively sharp out of the package. The tools all work as promised, if you can accept the limitation of non-locking tools with weak retention (meaning, for instance, that drivers are prone to folding closed under force). For its dimensions, weight, and cost, I feel this is good value for money. If you want more capability, your price point will go up a good bit. The simple design and material construction on this tool is nearly bullet-proof. The nylon case that comes with it is nothing spectacular, but a nice option for belt carry. At about 5 ounces, and 4" long, it slips into any bug out bag and is barely noticed. I would recommend this tool over the High Uinta 13-function pocket knife, and in my opinion is well worth the additional (small) cost difference. If it's not the best tool in the world, it might very well be the best tool in the world for its price. Most importantly, as with the 13-function pocket knife, it is a LOT better than a fist full of nothing.

Not relly what I expected

Pros: Well built, well balanced and the tools that do work, work well. Good set of pliers and a nice knife. Nice nylon case. Well balanced and good weight. Cons: Nearly all the tools that fold into the handle of the unit I received are frozen in place. Only the knife extends. Everything else has to be pried out with a screwdriver. Have soaked it in WD-40 and worked with it to loosen them up over the past year, but to no avail. Am considering drilling out the pins and replacing them to gain access to the tools.

Decent value for the price

Not the best $5 multitool I ever purchased but the other ones were on sale and not regularly available at that price. I agree about the handle (a bit flimsy). It is functional and has not fallen apart on me yet (I have used it a couple of times). You do get what you pay for on this one.

What else do you want

It's pretty handy with most of what you would need on any given outing. I would have given it 5 stars save for the fact the edges on the handle bite you if you use the pliers with any significant force, but then again, what else do you want?

looks good

Haven't had to use it for anything, but I figured out how to use it pretty quickly. The storage pouch is a nice bonus. Can't comment on durability as its not been used, but for the price, even if it's used once and falls apart, who cares?
