Here are my cheap multitools from Stanley brand. Paid about 10euros each one.

I see them come up a lot for sale - what are your thoughts on them?

The pliers based one looks like a standard Ganzo. And that saw on the other one looks a tad to short to be of any real use. I like the addition of the bits and wrenches though.

Believe it or not i find the plier on the multi plier good. I think they are well designed considering the price of the tool. I once cut a 2mm metal wire and they did it, but i got a bad pinch from the handles, probably due to the tools inside bending under the squeezing. The tools are not bad either, but they are non-locking so you have to be ware. The philipps screwdriver is quite long and solid but it is so polished that if you drive it hard on a screw it may slip and close catching your fingers between the bottom of the handle and itself, causing you to swear badly. The saw on the multiplier is short too, almost like the other bulky tool on the right, but as i once did a comparison with the saw on the Flik and it did a lot better than the Gerber, going with little effort through a 2cm plywood piece. Here below are the two saws side by side for comparison. Also a word about the sheath it came with: nice! Believe it or not, i find the sheath of good quality considering it is for few money.

The bulky multitool (or multi purpose tool?) on the right has a locking system. You have to push a button on the side to get the tools out and to close them too. When they are in the open position they have so much side by side and up and down play so you realize why you paid 10euro for it! Here below another pic of the multi plier with a show of the tools inside the handles:

You have to really love a tool to put up with it pinching you! :D

One of our engineers uses the sheath for his LM and the guy I work with most EDCs one to save his TTi Charge that is held in reverence in his tool kit :)
