Re: Micro Toolclip at Walmart

I found some of these sets on eBay for around $22 shipped. I got the first one today. I am a long-time knife and tool collector and I have to say that my first impressions of the tool are that it is very good. The fit and finish are outstanding, although the blade on the tool was not very sharp. It was a quick couple of passes on a sharpening rod to make it nice and sharp. I have no experience with toolclips previously, but I own a number of SOG tools and knives. This new micro toolclip is not as well made as say the paratool or something like that, but it is very good for the money. I almost always carry a Leatherman Squirt PS4 and while the Squirt has a higher level of fit and finish, this new SOG pocket tool is definitely going to get some carry time and the PS4 will sit on a shelf for a while. Part of this may be that I have XL hands and so the Squirt can sometimes feel a bit fiddly. I really think SOG has a winner here.
Now, the additional Centi knife--too dull to function as an actual knife when I got it. It needs more work than just a couple of passes on the rods. Odd grind. On the other hand, its a good size for keeping in an Altoids tin emergency kit and the basic build quality seems okay. As some others have said, at these prices, you get the knife for free so its hand to complain.
