THIS IS THE WORST
« on: October 24, 2018, 10:51:22 PM »
I picked up this little beauty yesterday.
I couldn't leave it, it was so pathetic
You would never dare use it for anything except an example of the worst kind of knockoff possible
The blades and tools appear to be all chromed mild steel.
It is so difficult to access the blades that I chipped my nails getting them out.
the corkscrew is soooo thin I doubt that it would even function
the scissors are about 1/3 the thickness of Victornox scissors, so thin in fact, that the spring cant hold contact, so they dont work.
I wouldn't even try the can opener, but the bottle opener might work.
The saw while it has a serrated edge is so blunt that you could saw your wrist for a week and not even get a rash
I think the awl, if that's what its supposed to be, is blunt and just a pressed component.
The file, well, speaks for itself

I laughed myself silly on this "tool?"
its about as functional as a politician at xmas break.

Enjoy

Its the exact same knife.
Who would have thought there would be two of them??????? :ahhh

I'm keeping mine as a curiosity.
As a tradesman, I have to believe that the spirits of toolmaking will punish the manufacturers of this piece of junk. :twak:

They will burn in the forges of hell for all eternity. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Ill bet there are even worse examples out there.

Yeah, didn't have my Climber with me at the time.

But it would not have mattered much, as seen in the video.

Its not quality

Yep. Had one. Dollar Tree used to sell them in 2007 or '08. Complete garbage. Everything bent so easily, and was so thin, it had to have been made out of pot metal.

I see those in plastic jars in some 'mom & pop'  hardware stores for $3 each. I wouldn't get one if it came with $3. :rofl:

With so many standards in tool-making world-wide, the producers of those things should be punished and held responsible for all injuries related to the failures the "tool" has certainly had. :rant:

Wow that is really bad  :o

Almost shockingly bad

As they mention in the video, it almost looks like a kids toy or I would even say, it looks like a prop made for like a movie or for a show....or even a very early faze prototype of a swiss army knife.

To make matters worse, someone both in China and America who was/is in charge of R&D, Quality Assurance and in charge of the company, looked at that thing and approved as a final product to push out and on to the market.....like at least act like you care about your products and customers and the fact that you are even charging people money for something that is literally unusable....literally unusable! 

Kind regards,

Well. In defense of the new TT with the junk-CAK. It does actually turn screws without bending with 2lbs of force. :rofl:

That is how this works... too many people hoping to win the lottery.

And don't hope for Ebay or PayPal to actually protect you. A German news team ordered several Graphic cards from China, all of them fakes.
Article (in German)

In short
- They wanted proof from a professional hardware specialist that the graphics card are actually fakes (pictures obviously proofing that were not accepted)
- They also demanded return sending with tracking at the customers cost.
Refusal basically means that its settled for ebay/paypal because the vendor offered a solution but the customer declined it.
Only when the news-team contacted the ebya/paypal press/PR section did things move and they got some money back.
What is the most infuriating about that is that, despite proofing deceit, there are no consequences to the vendors (not even the particular product offering was removed)

I'm looking forward to reading about it, Valkie! :popcorn:


I got this one out a tool box today. It is really really really bad. But, the wood saw actually has slightly sharpened teeth. 3/8" wobble in the pivots. :rofl:

My next day off (Sunday), I'll be trying it out against a SAK. :o
