Great Beater Multitool
on August 2, 2013
This multitool is a great option for use in places where you may not want to bring your $50+ dollar Leatherman Supertool. That being said, don't expect the same quality that would come with the mid level SOG, Gerber, or Leatherman offerings. This tool does excel however as an alternative for camping, the truck toolbox, or even a bug out bag. In any of these roles the Stanley 12 in 1 will do the job and the best part, if you loose it in the woods or don't use it more than a few times a year you won't kick yourself for spending a ton of money on it.
The tool itself isn't anything to sneer at either the handles are ergonomic enough for most jobs, and the tool itself is stout enough that it doesn't feel like its about to bend when you put the pliers to a decent amount of use. THe tools themselves are pretty run of the mill as far as multitools go but the saw and knife are relatively sharp, as are the wire cutters. Everything else works on it as advertised. The nylon sheath isn't bad for the price either, the snap holds very securely. Hell worst case it has a Stanley life time warranty!
Altogether, if you are someone who uses a multitool everyday whether it be for work or play this probably isn't the tool for you, but if you want a cheap sub for your prized multitool that you won't miss if its lost or neglected this is the best option for the price.
