The slip-joint pliers are dead useful when you need more power than the tweezers can provide, but less than a real pliers. The serrated self-sharpening scissors are great, because the blades don't slip when one is trying to cut a cable tie. Both the scissors and pliers have Wenger's proprietary springless design, which uses the backspring instead of adding a weak leaf spring, ala Victorinox.
The mini-wrench is a neat idea, but is only useful on very small nuts; the size which the pliers also work on. But it can provide more torque, in case it is a tight little bugger. The inline phillips is great; both this and the flat head screwdriver on the end of the bottle opener are self-locking in design. When one pushes in hard, as one would for a tight screw, it locks in place and will not fold up on you, causing you to bust your knuckles.
Wenger's can opener falls short of Victorinox's, but it does work in a pinch. The edge can also be used as a kind of utility knife or scraper, when you don't want to destroy the edge on the main blade.
The main blade has more belly (curve) than Victorinox's, for an effectively longer edge for the length, and also locks in place. Having a locking main blade on a pocket knife that is only 85mm long is just brilliant. I can break down boxes with ease with this knife, and not worry about it closing on my fingers as I pull it out of the cardboard. It is worth noting that the blade stock is thinner than the same size Victorinox, so it will not react well to any prying. (use the flat screwdriver or nail file for that) On the other hand, it also sharpens to a razor's edge without as much effort too.
The toothpick is thinner than Victorinox's, so it gets in those tight teeth easier. The toothpick and tweezers store on the inside of he scales, and thus don't ruin the cosmetics of the knife as a result.
The Evolution scale shape feels great in the hand. Last but not least, this is a 5-layer knife, but is only as thick as a typical 4-layer Victorinox model. It is just on the large side of what I'm willing to pocket carry in my weekend pants. (too thick for weekday khakis, IMO)
Highly recommended, one of my favorite models.
However, the wrench and the Phillips screwdriver are nearly impossible to pull out without mutilating your thumbnail! Some blogs recommend using WD40 to help with that, but I would have assumed that all the silicone lube they put on it (and 2 months later is still leaking over the tools) should've taken care of it already.
The main spear blade could be better if serrated but the Padlock Safety Locking System is simply the best feature.
