I picked up one of these "AVENGER Products 9 in 1 Multi Tool with Wrench" things on eBay. I've been doing reviews of the Ubiquitous Chinese SOG Toolclip knockoffs for a while now, and this tool was in the same vein, but different and neat. I had to try it.
First off, it's a big hunk of metal. It's about 7 inches long, and it fits in the hand nicely. This is the first clutch wrench I've ever owned, and I'm liking it. I've used regular adjustable wrenches for ages and have always been disappointed, even when using top of the line forged tools with precise tolerances... they're still not great. This... well, this works really neat. It grips the bolt well and doesn't slip. The jaws open enough for a 17mm bolt head, but that is at the limit of the jaws. 14mm or 15mm is the maximum comfortable nut I think. On the small end, 10mm is the smallest it will go and still have good purchase. A 10-17mm range is about perfect, but 17mm is stretching it. I'm really surprised how well the wrench does work, and the ratcheting action is nice too. Takes just a bit to get used to, but then it's awesome.
The tool seems to have signficiantly higher quality than many of the plier tools I've reviewed. All of the rivets are peened properly, the screwdriver is squared off and not overly polished, as it should be, and there is minimal side play to the blades. The blade is not quite sharp enough to cut paper, but the serrated blade seems a lot sharper. The file on the back of the serrated blade isn't very aggressive. It works fine for finger nails, but doesn't cut wood well, much less metal.
The fold-out pliers are really cool, very similar to pliers on other Chinese knives. They're unfortunately not the most precisely made jaws. The tips don't come together, so they can't hold really small items. The back of the jaws hit first. The teeth all mesh up nicely though, and there's no side offset. The cutters work on everything from 24ga stranded on up to 12ga stranded wire. That was a really nice surprise!
The sheath is nicely made, with a layer of medium thickness nylon for the outside, a nicely stitched logo, and an inner liner so the tool doesn't get scratched. The tool fits well, and loosely so it can be pulled out easily. Loops are there for either horizontal or vertical carry.
Overall I really like this little wrench. The clutch wrench/plier combo is a nice touch. I'd prefer if the plain blade was replaced with a combo edge blade and the serrated blade was replaced with a wood saw, but I really can't complain. This is a good tool, and cheap too. I paid $12.99 with free shipping.
