Its one of those tools you don't use on a regular basis. So I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money replacing something that would spend most of the time in tool box. It does the job and being chrome vanadium should hold up and not rust away waiting to be used again but will have to wait and see. But for the price, I'm not too concerned about it measuring up to my antique Duro Indestro which are only replaced because of theft. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good, solid and inexpensive replacement.
