I received two defective units, possibly counterfeit.
on August 7, 2016
First, let me state that I've had three of these tools in the the past (same model), and they've all been great.
However, I purchased a two pack from this Amazon listing (seller was DawningView), and the quality of the tools was atrocious!
I could tell before opening the blister package that something wasn't right. They looked...different.
I opened a package and found that the tool was indeed of low quality.
-The blade was dull (both the straight and serrated part)
-When locking the tool closed, it was loose, and would wiggle freely. This could cause the tip of the blade to cut my pant pocket (or even me).
-The metal itself was uneven! Just look at my photo, the metal that makes up the screwdriver is not straight. It's even worse on the tool that I didn't open yet. You can see that just under the serrated blade, the metal is sort of 'wavey'. It looks even worse in person.
The three utilikeys I had over the past 5 years have had none of these problems.
I ended up buying another one from my local store, and the difference is huge.
**Note the circles in my 2nd image. Those circles are NOT present on the crappy models I received. It's possible that if you don't have those circles, your utilikey is a fake/counterfeit, that or it came from a very, very bad batch. If you receive the same thing, request a refund!
