Does that ruler have an edge at least?  Those are nice big scissors.

No edge on that Freehand ruler. Its just a big ol' hunk of metal, with a bevel on the end

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

It looks like a solid beastie.

Think it could take on a Wave and come out on top?

1)  Does the Freehand have any significant advantage over the Flik in terms of the individual implements?  Selection, size, etc.)?  For example, the drivers on both are probably short so thats no advantage there.

2)  Are the following "new" features you previously mentioned in the Flik also in the Freehand?
   (a) Slide-the-lock-forward-to raise the tools feature
   (b) antipinch feature which comes into play after you separate the handles
   (c) anti-rattle plier head


Yes to all three and the little bent pieces at the end of the slide are supposed to hold the head in the closed position and do not work on the Freehand so probable will be the same on the Flik. Ok my Freehand was used full time and the head just slides down the handles when I try to repouch the tool, not very clever whilst on the top of a ladder. I was hoping they would have altered that bit at least.

Thinking clearly I'd say! Just what I've wished for on my spirit, and always needed on the wave; a small pry bar. If its properly tempered, that would work wonders in a lot of situations.

It is strong (I do not know how well it is tempered) I have used mine to rive stuff off walls and such. I always held it rather than the handles when putting heavy presure to the bar so as not to strain the axle. If you use the measure half open, it is easier to use and the figures are up against what you are measuring. While I was using my Freehand I thought and used that blade as a good pry bar with a useful measure on the side although the saw will be even more useful.
