Not a bad choice, not a great one either
on November 9, 2013
I was attracted to this tool mainly because of its looks. The skeletonized body and the well-designed lock-release mechanism are good selling points. The tool also has a large selection of useful tools. However, all of that is offset by various flaws. The washers used between each tool are incredibly thick, adding weight and bulk to the tool for no good reason I can see. It would be a much better tool with thinner washers in my opinion. The tools and blades are quite short, which reduces their usefulness. The plier handles are quite far apart when the pliers are closed. There's no reason for this either, as far as I can see, and makes it quite uncomfortable for all but the largest hands. This could have been easily remedied in design also.
Overall, I can't say it isn't a good value for the money. On paper at least, it has an impressive list of features for the price, but where it falls short is in the utility. None of the tools work as well as they could. For that reason, I feel I am being charitable in giving it 3 stars.
