My Roxon sheath does not have the pocket for the bit set, nor did it come with one.
I could steal the Ganzo bit set and put it in there, but there is a better solution.
The Storm fits nicely in the Ganzo sheath, with the bits. There is a pocket for the bit set already, the bit set is great and fits perfectly on the Storm, the sheath also has a snap button.

That Firebird Ganzo is a steal at that price. Instead of a cheaper Ganzo, with non locking tools, no scissors, and velcro sheath, you get a premium model, with locking tools, scissors, and snap button sheath.

F301 is a fantastic tool indeed. :iagree:

I bought two when they had the polished steel ones(Firebird Chromium version) for $25 each. I still have one and magentus won one in a giveaway. Slick action and smooth plier deployment. :)
I have an F201, but it seems like junk compared to the F301, because of the locks.

I think the Roxon and F301 are similar in fit & finish. But, they are two dissimilar to go head-to-head.

Good idea with the Ganzo sheath/bits for the Roxon. Ganzo sheaths are pretty dang good. :)

Here is the other model, S501, just knife and scissors.  :like:

Skip to 4:55 for the Spark.

I think the most interesting Roxon tool is actually the KS, with just the knife and scissors. Though I would like to see a version without a tanto blade.

  Have any of you seen the 6 in 1 BBQ multitool Roxon makes? I do not do outdoor cooking, but I am still thinking about adding it to my collection!

The BBQMT looks pretty cool. Don't know how well it is made, but of the S801 is an indicator, it is probably good. :)

That does not look too bad... love that it comes in different colors by default.

Well, it's not as good looking as the Storm, but it is another new design.  :cheers:

I suspect the designers may have had a bit of a look at the Buck Navigator when they were choosing the look for this one:

Well, there is a passing resemblance. :think:
That's so weird, though. Buck almost had a butterfly MT?  :ahhh That's cool and a shame. I've never seen it before, and maybe they haven't either.

I don't think it was popular or that Buck made many of them.  :dunno:

It was widely marketed, but Buck never went ahead with full production.  There were a few prototypes/pre-production tools made, but most of them have ended up with collectors.

My daughter loves the Firebird - she uses it a lot for her craft projects and gave me back my Spirit in exchange! How's that for a recommendation!

This kitchen scale is 8mm thick, and can hold up to 150kg.... This kitchen scale was thick, and made to hold the weight of a person, and it shattered quite convincingly.

Kitchen scale or bathroom scale?  :think:   I don't put people in my cooking, but then I am a vegetarian...  :whistle:

Lee Valley tools now has a roxon multitool for sale.  It's just a oho knife (right hand opening only) with liner lock and a large pair of scissors.  Advertised as under 5 oz.

Might be of some interest as I recall earlier in the thread someone was looking for such an implement.
