Use: Light Duty/General

I have one of this - using for light jobs sometimes - the tool is very small, lightweight and compact. The pliers are thin with good for the size and price properties and the most important - spring action which is very cool. They are stable and suitable for light work
There is two blades - serrated and plain - the angle of shaping is 15 and blades are very thin approximately as in Victorinox and are extremely sharp. The plain blade have a typical curve on back where can be thumb placed so it's comfort . However blades are very short and there is a horizontal blade play after several opening and closing so they must be periodically tighten. Serrated blade, although is very durable - I even use it for soil sampling and timber cutting - there is no need for resharpen until now. The screwdrivers are stable, but the Phillips one is two dimensional not three ! - it works however but not so good.
As general - good small and compact tool for light jobs - may be in the urban medium, but frankly speaking I prefer my Victorinox SwissChamp
