A real multitool for under $10? I guess.

Pros:
1) Really convenient. Works great on your key ring. If you forget your pocketknife then you've always got something with you.
2) Great design. I love how it does so many things and has such a tiny form factor.
3) Low cost.

Cons:
1) Very cheap steel. I'd rather pay twice as much for better quality.
2) Incredibly unergonomic. You have to put your hand on the kinfe blade to use the screwdriver.
3) Easier to cut yourself than other multitool designs.
4) Latching mechanism is inconvenient: There is a groove to put your thumbnail into, but its not handy. It takes two hands to open it. I often end up dropping my key ring while I'm opening the mechanism. So I always try to open it over a table or chair now.

Buy it? Yes. The same genius of its design is also its undoing. It is a perfect compromise - not perfect in any way, but gets the job done. But keep your expectations low.

This is just one of those simple easy to carry tools that is useful and is easily kept with you. I looked at a lot of other multi-tools and many of them do not have a knife on them. The tool I most often need and find most useful is always a pocket knife. From opening boxes and cutting twine to opening up letter this thing works great. You need to be a little careful opening/closing as the serrated part is very sharp and easy to hit your fingers with. I bought two and they came packaged in a VERY nice gift box which was nice as I gave one as a present.

My daughter needed an all-purpose tool for her mission work overseas. She did all the on-line research, checked out sporting stores in the Northwest, and said this was exactly what she wanted.

It arrives in a very nice gift box, making it a perfect stocking stuffer, or clever birthday gift for almost anyone. Much more compact than the ubiquitous Swiss Army Knife. The price was right.

The utili-key I received wasn't terribly sharp (as in Chicago Cutlery quality), is hard to open because of the latching mechanism, and even harder to use because of its size and form factor.

I have been using this for years, I do have a regualar tool type of keychain but its kind of a pain to have on your keys because of its size

With this gadget you forget its on your keys and must admit a few times I needed to use one of the features of this and forgot I even had it on my keys and went looking for another tool that would do the job when all along I had what would work in my pocket lol

This is a high quality item and looks the same as the day I got it several years ago so I do not have a single regret of this purchase, its very inexpesive for the fact this could be something that would last a lifetime, its a great gift!

I have given these to guys and gals alike, now yeah the gals think hey what is this thing? I give a quick demonstration and they still say what do I need that for? so if you give one of these to a gal take her keys and put it on there yourself because they wont do it lol

Over the years I have had those same people come up to me and say hey that thing you got me that I thought was stupid, yeah? well I have used it many times! and while I thought it was stupid I sure don't think that anymore! lol

This is a fun idea, but its made really cheap. It didn't even last 6 months before breaking. Oh well.

Not a lot of options with this tool, but what it does, it does exceptionally well, and it is by far the smallest tool I've found. It has a very sharp knife, small phillips head screwdriver, bottle opener, small eighth-inch wide screwdriver blade, and even smaller one for very small screws like you would find in eyeglasses. Sorry no pliers or corkscrew. The best feature of this tool is that it is no bigger than a house key and snaps securely on and off your keyring in a second. If you have little room for a tool and find yourself wanting a knife or bottle opener very often, or if the screws on your glasses come loose from time to time this tool is for you.

The "Swiss Tech Utili-Key 6-in-1 Tool" attaches easily to your key ring and is completely unobtrusive, being the same shape and size of a normal key. The multi-tool can be a little hard to open at first, but becomes easier with usage.

While it says 6-in-1 (Flat Screwdriver, Micro Eyeglass Screwdriver, Bottle Opener, Phillips Screwdriver, and Knife), I find that the Phillips Screwdriver and Knife are the most practical and get the most use.

The tool is reasonably well made and sturdy, but should not be used as a pry bar or other high stress uses.

A handy and convenient tool, recommended if you like having basic tools with you at all times.

Ok, this isn't made for the most heavy duty tasks in the world. It can't do half the things my Leatherman does, and it's not the most ergonomic device in it's class. But, it's only as big as a key and when I travel to an exotic locale, or even to a bench at my local park, it will slice my lime, and open my bottle of Pacifico, Corona, or other tasty beverage of choice. And that alone makes it an invaluable addition to anyone's tool collection.

The Swiss Tech utilikey is really a useful tool if you don't want to carry a knife on your key ring. I like all of the useful little functions of the utilikey, especially the serrated knife blade. The only reason why I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it is really difficult to open without long fingernails and most of the time I need to use my teeth to get it open. Besides that, it is a pretty handy tool that I take with me everywhere.
