Been a bit since I had this one wrote out just haven't put it in here
The Bear and Son Super Bear Jaws Sportsman 157SM and Gardener 157GT
aka the Crescent brand Toolzall Maintenance Pro
This tool is based around a tin snip or shears headThe Tool
The tool itself is 4 1/2 inches closed and around 8 inches open. It dwarfs both my LM Super Tool and my Vic Swisstool. That in itself is impressive. It is a very handy tool for me because I use it mainly as a band cutter. It slices right through most bands with ease but the downfall is that sometimes it nicks the shears. It is held together with T10 regular torq pins and is very easy to take apart loosen or tighten. In fact the instructions that come with the tool actually mention this. Also worth mentioning is that you can interchange tools from other models to better suit your needs.The Shears Head
These shears are a welcomed variation on the reg plier head design. Being one of only a few (very few) others designed around this head. It swings open with ease and has a latch to keep it from accidentally opening. The shears are also spring loaded, another feature that I really like about this tool. Be careful not to try and close it without latching it closed though or you might lose the spring.The Blade
Well of the three variations/models that I know of I believe that they all come with the combo clip point blade plain/serrated edge knife. Not being a fan of this type of blade it is still serviceable. The Saw
Well I like the saw that this company makes. It is a beefy saw with fewer teeth than most of the other big brands. The fewer teeth mean more aggressive cutting which I find a plus in this multi. The Screwdriver
I believe that all of the models come with a single straight bit med screwdriver. It is a good driver but a phillips head would have been more preferable to me. On the other hand you could always double it as a small prybar. All in all at least there is a screwdriver and not 3 or 4 of different sizes.The Different Tools of Each Model
Here the tools differentiate from one another.
The Toolzall Version
has a file
While I love there saw I really don't care much for there file. It is a useable file but lacks surface. It doesn't go anywhere near the bottom (the filing surface I mean). Also the most versatile of the tools offered on the different models.
The Bear Jaws Gardener 157GT
has a grafting tool
This tool can be used for grafting. It can also be used to scrape different things and be used as a cutter. This is a nice tool in the garden but too specialized for a everyday multi.
The Bear Jaws Sportsman 157SM
has a bird disgorging hook
This hook has an interesting use it is said to be a bird hook, which is used to pull the guts and innards out of a bird for lack of a better way to put it. Also to specialized of a tool for an everyday carry multi. Also of note is the lack of a lanyard ring on these models.Pros
-Nice to be able to carry a compact band cutter
-Good multi to compliment another multi due to it's specialized uses
-Very compact to what it unfolds likeCons
-Some models can be considered to specialized
-Some of the tools are subpar to there counterparts of other brands
-The spring can fall out if not careful how you close it
-Not a wide tool selection
Overall I would not carry this as a standalone tool but it does compliment another multi very well.
