Thank you both for your quick replies. As to the other techs, I'll check. The fellow who's currently showing me the ropes uses the smaller SOG (I have the Powerlock, his unit is the SOG without locking tools). It's a replacement for a PST and a Gerber which he supposedly broke during work. To be honest, I suspect most of these fellows problems are due to their asking too much of a particular tool. I've never worked with vending machines before, and their hardware seems very overbuilt to prevent vandalism, theft and general mayhem.
Still, I've become quite a Victorinox fan.
