Bio: Ive been camping and backpacking since I was about 12. Most of my backpacking experience has been in Michigan but has involved every type of weather and season this state has to offer. I had clubbed feet so I cant travel as far as Id like when I go. For this reason, Ive started to lighten my load, train, and have a few trips planned that will involve longer distances and steeper terrain that Im used to.

Other: I also used this tool almost everyday at work, on various science projects, and on my parents farm.
Ive had this tool for almost 4 years and its been invaluable in more than one situation. Its been useful from fixing broken zippers on a jacket to removing a huge splinter and taking care of some blisters to emergency car repairs in below freezing weather. I never went anywhere without this tool. Its a little on the basic side when it comes to multi-tools today but every tool on it got used. I liked to the size and weight of it and it was always in the bottom of my pocket. I didnt like that the knife didnt lock but then again it was only used for small project. I ended up trying to use the wire cutters to snip a wire that was a little bigger than it was designed to handle. Needless to say, it didnt cut and ended up bending the cutter so that they now stick together. I would have sent it in on the warranty but it was a Christmas gift and the warranty was lost and thrown out in the wrapping paper the same day it was opened. Other than that, the knife was
very durable and I would recommend it to someone for an all around tool.
