Awesome Multi tool
I use a multi tool for a myriad of projects from large to small. I like this tool because everything is accessible from the closed position. If feels substantial, like it isn't going to fall apart if I put it up against something that most tools of this type cannot handle. I like the saw blade option though I wish that for the money that this tool came with two or three different blades in the box. The rough-cut blade it comes with, although good, doesn't quite cover everything I can think of potentially needing to cut through with a saw.

AWESOME tool
How you use the product Things that are great about it INTERESTING questions... How you use the product ... ON EVERYTHING things that are great about it... It WORKS as advertised. I bought mine several years ago right after they came out. It is on my belt and is with me everyday when I am at home and out in the woods. it has saved me walking miles or getting off of the roof more times that I care to think about. the blade comes sharp, but everything can use a little more help. I spent about 5 minutes with the sticks and now is is shaving sharp all the time. I used to carry the "L-word" brand but their materials just wouldn't hold up to the use I give them. Anyone who thinks stainless steel is a great material for cutters and all applications obviously does not spend much time in the real world. I replaced those with a Schrade multi and it worked great until one half of the pliers broke off while trying to use it as a pliers. Imagine that. I saw the Gerber set and figured I would give them a try. Years later the Gerber is still on my belt. I managed to wear out the first holster so I repurposed another nylon one and it keeps on the belt... all the time. I have yet to have to replace the wire cutter inserts even though I do a lot of electrical work and when it is too inconvenient to go back for the proper tools I drag the Gerber off the belt and work it and it has yet to not do what I have asked of it. It has gone almost to the Arctic Circle on hunts and been buried in more mud and gunk from wiring up a winch to pull out a buried ATV that tried to negotiate more than it could handle. After years of in and out of the pouch and handling and being wetted down with various chemicals and cleaners some of the little rubber inserts have come off... and it means nothing to the operation of the unit. I know there are cheaper ones out there but in this case you really get what you pay for. Best bang for the buck.

Daily use Legend
I have been using a Legend daily on my farm and my plant nursery. I'm on the fifth or sixth one. On every one I have broken the carbide cutter inserts almost immediately. The rubber handle inserts come off within just a few weeks but who cares? The handles are big enough so they are comfortable to exert all the pressure possible when using the pliers. I've never had a problem with the Phillips bit and I use it daily. It grips screws really well. I have torn up the littlest screwdriver/awl and I have broken the flat screwdriver blades by prying things with them but they are pretty strong. The spring on the scissors on the current one is a problem. It completely doesn't work. It will be going back to Gerber shortly and this brings me to the final point. Every tool I have returned to Gerber battered and beaten has been promptly replaced with a new one.

Over Engineered Paper Weight
Every time I open it. Springs pop out under the fold back guides and have to be reset with a small smooth tool. I'd hate to have my life depend on this tool. My Ancient Gerber and 2 purpose built competitors have never given this much grief!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
