Firebiner the pocket shredder

When I first saw Outdoor Element's Firebiner I thought it was a cool gadget. So I bought one...and thus started a love hate relationship. I have taked about this in a past 30d challange, but I forgot evrey lesson learned and tried again.
For starters every function on the tool works. As a tool it is functional.
That is the good.
The bad thing is the screwdriver and bottle opener are sharp. I have drawn blood on the bottle opener, not the line cutter it protects, the opener itself.
These protrusions will wear through any fabric in a matter of days. I have shreaded 2 pairs of jeans and 1 Dickies trying to use it for my keys.
I even tried electrical shrink sleeving to cover them and it wore through the shrink sleeving on a monthly basis.
Its frustrating because I really want to like and use this product.

I used to be a lot of things, and someday will again.
But for now I'm just a lost jack of trades with neither mastery nor home. ~NoaIsumi
