When I lost my LM and couldn't justify $$ to replace it right away, I started using this little jewel...
It can be found under "Rolson Tools" also. http://www.rolsontools.com/2pc-mini-multi-tool-set.htmlGood:
Under 5USD usually
It actually does what you think it does by looking at it
Pliers are actually well made and tip is aligned VERY well. No wobble. Spring loaded!
Cutters - no issues with small gauge wire. Was able to cut bread tie even though it struggled with the insulation. lol.
Smaller side of tools - if that is what you want
Knife seems ok. No heavy cutting and I didn't skin a deer but seems to get the job done
Available in multiple colors and schemes
Sheath (I dont use them)
One hinge likes to come loose at the bottle opener. Difficult to get balanced tool tension vs tool trying to escape! Took several tries.
Bottle opener is thin so if this bothers you on other brands it will here too
The oval slots are NOT for your nail. The knife is opened by friction
Philips tool is a fixed tool and VERY short. Poor purchase or grip on the fastener. Its crap really, but does in a pinch.
Doesn't usually close smoothly all the way
No regrets especially given the pricing but glad to have a LM again.
