      Bio: I’ve 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 can’t travel as far as I’d like when I go. For this reason, I’ve started to lighten my load, train, and have a few trips planned that will involve longer distances and steeper terrain that I’m used to.

      General Information

      I’ve had this tool for almost 4 years and it’s been invaluable in more than one situation. It’s 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. It’s 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 didn’t like that the knife didn’t 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 didn’t 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.
