Cons: Overall Quality, Materials
Great design, poor materials
Bought this for basic folding knife maintenance. Has the right size torx bits for Spyderco's knives, among plenty of others out there. Seemed perfect, and I was thrilled when I first opened it up. It looks quite versatile, and the included pouch is really nifty. Even has a nice thick band to hold it all together; not at all necessary, but certainly a nice touch. Unfortunately, that's where the good stops. The metal the tool keys themselves are made of are extremely brittle. After about 15 minutes, I broke my first torx key with very little force or pressure during normal usage. The smallest size has a pair of identical keys, it is reasonable to expect the tiny ones to wear out over time. However, I was NOT expecting one to outright shatter just from tightening a screw! I wouldn't be too upset if this was a cheaper package, but the tool is portrayed as something much sturdier and more dependable than it is. Not recommended.
