I got this product because it had everything I needed and nothing else. I was going to carry it everyday, so why does it need a tool that I'll use once in its lifetime for novelty? I really liked this concept, however I'll give you a chronology of how it failed...
- Arrived: Pliers wobbly. Have to forcefully engage screwdrivers into liner-lock. Not enough to make me immediately hate it.
- ~2 weeks: Pliers very wobbly from minimal use. The handles could move 1/4+ inch at their ends.
- ~6 months: Knife lock seizes regularly and requires oil to barely function. This means it was hard to unlock the knife to open it, and once opened it wouldn't lock the blade in place which is pretty dangerous.
- ~10 months: Tip of the pliers fractured off. I had only used them maybe 50-75 times at this point under light load. (I mostly got this as a knife replacement.)
- ~1 year: Replaced with Leatherman 830850 Skeletool CX Multitool
As you can see, pretty much every function of the tool failed within half of a year, with some being crippled on arrival. The only reason this gets 2 stars because I really love the layout and functionality of the tool. It just had absolutely horrible tolerances and material selection for a brand such as Gerber. As you can see, I replaced it with a Leatherman Skeletool CX. I've only had it for a couple weeks, but the tolerances are super tight and the material is definitely beefier where it matters. Its main difference is the Leatherman knife isn't spring assisted which is sad, however the screwdriver has swapable bits which is good.
